Thattil Kutti Dosa with Garlic Chutney

>> March 25, 2012

This dosa-chutney combination requires no introduction to  Malayalis, who would have watched the movie Salt & Pepper. Yes, this dosa was the root cause or rather the plot of the movie.....

Thattil kutti dosa is a small fluffy dosa which is not spread but just laddled onto the griddle pan.

The garlic chutney also has a mention in the movie and i have come out with my own version because the recipes which i searched in the web used lot of tamarind or sometimes coconut. This is a simple, garlic-onion-lemon juice recipe.

ingredients for the garlic chutney

garlic - 20 large cloves, vertically slit
onion - 1 small, roughly julienned
salt to taste
deseeded green chilly - 1 (optional) - i did not use
lemon juice - 1 tsp


To prepare the garlic chutney, heat 2 tbsp of oil  in low flame and add the garlic and onion. Saute till the raw smell goes off but before it turns brown. Drain the onion and garlic from oil and place it in a blender. Add salt and few tablespoons of water and grind it to a smooth paste. Place the chutney in a bowl and mix in the lemon juice. You can serve the chutney with dosas or spread it on to roti like a mayonnaise, you can see the texture in the picture.

Saute the  chilly also if you are using green chillies

ingredients for the dosa

dosa batter - as much as you need

method to prepare thattil kutti dosa - grease a non-stick pan or the traditional cast iron pan and pour a ladle full of batter and let the batter take shape by itself. Drizzle few drops of oil on the sides and top of the pan. When the dosa is cooked and crispy, flip the dosa with a spatula. Let the other side also turn crispy.

Serve hot with the garlic chutney.

I make this for my kids all the time. I have heard that the spread a little sugar on top of the dosa and lightly caramelize it .. makes a great combo with the chutney..!
