Thalippu dosa is a quirky dosa recipe, bursting with the flavours of tadka - yes, the same tadka you pour over dal and curries for tantalising flavours! It is a quick, easy and delightful recipe that requires nothing but a handful of ingredients including mustard seeds and red chilli for the tadka!
How To Make Thalippu Dosa | Tadka Dosa Recipe:
For the recipe, you simply need to mix the regular dosa batter with sautéed tadka mix, onion and tomatoes, and cook a spoonful of it over a hot pan. The tadka is a fiery mix of mustard seeds, red chillies, curry leaves and asafoetida, but you may add urad or chana dal to it besides ginger and garlic. While this is a plain dosa, you can add a number of stuffings to it or add egg to the batter for a wholesome, high-protein dosa.
