Bellpeppers Masala Dosa & Soyachunks n Greenpeas Kurma...Some Awards

Southindian breakfast specially tamilian breakfast is not complete without idlis and dosas...i love crispy paper roast and masala dosas, before few years ago making dosa here is completely a tough task coz of rice we get coz of srilankans and huge population of pondicherrians we get any sort of rice for our rice dishes, idlis and dosas..i had many bitter experiences while making out dosas,even i have trashed sometimes the dosa batter too..but nowadays i can do anything, really many thing..After the hottest wednesday here, sterday evening was completely an another day, coz of the cold climate..i felt like preparing dosas after our few salad days..I did a simple masala with red and green bellpeppers and served a stuffing for making out masala dosa along with soyachunks and green peas kurma..both together turns out evening dinner fabulous.. They tastes really divine and really a prefect combination...Healthy breakfast or dinner this bellpepper masala dosa and soya &greenpeas kurma suits prefect...Am sending the bellpeppers masala dosa to EC's WYF-Breakfast and the soyachunks&greenpeas kurma goes to VIki's Side dish for chapathi...

2cups Idli batter

For Bellpepper masala:
1cup Red and green bell peppers (chopped)
1/2tsp Cumin seeds
1/2tsp Chilly powder
1tbsp Soya sauce
Salt (if needed)

Heat oil in a pan and let splutter the cumin seeds, add the chopped bellpepper pieces and saute for few seconds, add the chilly powder, soya sauce and salt if needed and cook in simmer until the oil gets separates, keep aside and let them cool..

Make a dosa batter by adding few water to the idli batter,heat a non stick pan, grease the pan with oil and paper towel or with a slice of pour a spoonful of batter and turn in clockwise to small circles..drizzle few drops of oil around and flip the other side and cook place a the bellpepper masala inside the dosa and roll it...Serve hot!!

Soyachunks & Green Peas Kurma:
1/2cup Dry green peas
10nos Soyachunks
1no Onion (chopped)
1no Tomato (chopped)

1tsp Cumin seeds

1no Cinnamon stick
3nos Cloves
2tbsp Coriander seeds
4nos Dry red chillies

Soak the dry green peas overnite and cook in hot water with salt until they get half cooked, drain the excess of water and keep aside...Cook the soyachunks in salted hot water until their double their volume, drain and squeeze out the excess of water...meanwhile grind all the ingredients from the list 'to grind' as fine paste and keep aside...

Heat enough oil in a kadai, add the bay leaves and fry until they turns brown, add immediately the chopped onions, chopped tomatoes, ginger paste, garlic paste and saute everything well until the raw smells goes away...add now the half cooked green peas and add the grounded paste to the kadai, cook everything in simmer for few minutes with lid closed...finally add the cooked soya chunks and enough water to the kadai and cook in medium high flame for few minutes..put off the stove and add the coriander leaves..
