Whole Wheat Dosa with Peanut Chutney

Last week when I was talking to my mother, she said that she made this dosa which became a big hit with her colleagues. I tried it this morning and it was a big hit here too. Hope you all like it.
Ingredients
Dosa
Whole wheat flour – 1 ½ - 2 cups
Diced tomato – 1
Curry leaves
Ginger – small piece
Green chillies – 2 (to taste)
Salt
Water
Chutney
Roasted peanuts – ½ cup
Chopped onions – ¼ cup
Green chillies – 1-2 (to taste)
Salt
Water
Mustard seeds – 1 tsp
Oil – 1 tsp
Curry leaves

Method
Dosa
Put all the ingredients for the dosa into the big jar of your mixie/blender and blend together. Add water as the batter thickens. But make sure it isn’t too watery. Blending the batter in the mixie gives it a super smooth texture. Make dosas and serve hot.
 
Chutney
Grind together the peanuts, green chillies, onions and salt to make a smooth paste.  Heat oil in a small pan and add the mustard seeds. Once they start spluttering, add the curry leaves and pour onto the chutney. Enjoy with the whole wheat dosas or with any south Indian snacks like idly, vada, uthappam etc. Bon App├ętit. 

Note  1) You can add cumin seeds for an added flavour. Try your own versions and let us know.
           2) You can easily toast raw peanuts in the microwave; place the peanuts on a plate and microwave  for 1.30 – 2 minutes. Toss and roast longer if required.
