Thattil Kutti Dosa with Garlic Chutney
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
