Remixed dosa and onion sabji for the event.

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi all,
As I have already done this before, one more remixing of my posts for the event. 

Actually this is my daughter's favorite lunch, which she loves to take often. So I thought of remixing two recipes and sending this to RV's event.

For Dosa recipe, ( for previous recipe, click here)
In first entry I make large dosas, but my daughter likes to take mini dosas as they remain soft till lunch time, I started making mini dosa.                           

Raw rice - 2 cup

Urad dal - 1 cup
Tomato - 2 big, chopped
Red dry chilly - 2
Coriander seeds - 2 tbsp
Jeera - 1tsp
Salt to taste
Oil to make dosas
You can skip all masalas and add only tomatoes while grinding the atta. This also tastes good.                                                         
Soak the rice and urad dal for 4 to 6 hours. Before grinding, wash both and add other ingredients except oil. Keep it over night or 8 hours.
Heat tava, spread the batter to make mini dosas. Spread ghee or butter on dosas. You can make 3 to 4 mini dosas at a time. Remove it and keep aside.

Now coming to Onion subji recipe, (for previous recipe, click here)

Onion – 1 big (Chopped lengthwise)

Tomato – 1big (Chopped finely)

Curry leaves – 4 to 6
Chilly powder – 1 tbsp

Mustard seed – ½ tsp
Crushed peanut and almonds – ¼ cup(crushed to big pieces)
(If you like add cashew nuts also), optional

Jeera – ½ tsp                                                                      
Salt to taste                                                                                                     

Haldi -1/2 tsp
Oil - 1 tbsp
Hing – a pinch
Sugar – 1 tsp
Fresh coriander – 1 tbsp
Only extra ingredient in this is adding Crushed Cinnamon stick - 1 big, which really gives an unique taste.
Add mustard seeds and jeera in hot oil. Now add curry leaves, hing and onions with crushed nuts. Cook till brown, add tomato. Let it cook till oil separates. Add Chilly powder, salt, sugar and haldi. Add little water and boil it for five minutes. Mix with chopped fresh coriander.

Pack both together for lunch box. 

I want to send this lunch box  to RV's  Food for 7 Stages of Life - Kids Special Event Announcement 
and it is essential to give credits to Sudeshna of
 Sudeshna’s Cook like a bong( page.

Keep smiling,
