Raja Raja Chozhan Dosai

Are you wondering about the name of the post or the dosa name, come on i will tell you all about it in next few lines. Raja Raja Chozhan,  a Tamil King, who had build the famous Tanjore Big Temple. This Year 2010, the Tanjore Big Temple completes 1000 years. In such a Celebration Time, one of Uduppi Restaurant in Chennai, Pondy Bazaar, called Matsya, is celebrating the occassion, by giving the name of the king Raja Raja Chozhan to a Good Dosai. if you have not visited the tanjore Big Temple, Please do visit the temple in evening. with full moon or with moondraam pirai, it will be a pleasure to see the temple. According to me Tanjore is the Best place to taste authentic Tamil Food.

Masala for dosai

Whoever have read Ponniyin Selvan, a novel written by kalki, will sure loved the characters of the novel. My favourite characters in the novel are Raja Raja Chozhan, Poonkuzhali, Vanthiya devan, Kundhavai, Aazhvar kadigan and at last Nandhini.

enough of novel thoughts.

Yesterday, i tasted this dosai at Matsya restaurant, and today i prepared and am blogging it now. Its the casual stuffing other than potato masala. the stuffing has onion, tomatoes and capsicum. it may sound simple, but it has a different taste, that will make you crave for another dosai.

Raja Raja Chozhan Dosai

Ingredients:

Oil - 1 tsp
One Onion
One Green Chilli
Two Tomatoes
1/4 of a Green Capsicum (you can add combination of green and red capsicum)
Curry Leaves - 1 sprig
Chili Powder - 1 tsp
Corriander Powder - 2 tsp
Salt to taste
Finally a tsp of Ghee.

Method:

Heat a Pan, add 1 tsp oil and heat it. add mustard and let it splutter. add finely chopped curry leaves, green chilli and onion and fry them well. Add finely chopped tomatoes and fry it too. add finely chopped capsicum's and mix along with onion-tomatoes. add salt to taste, add chilli powder, corriander powder and mix well. Try to mash the tomatoes and capsicum and mix together. add very little water to get the consistency, as shown in the above pics. finally add a tsp of ghee and remove the stuffing from flame.

Prepare dosai's and spread 2 tsp's of stuffing in the centre of the dosai and fold it to get the traingle shape. serve it hot with coconut chutney..
