Thiksaniche Maskat

                                When joint families were the norm cooking food in large quantities had to be as quick as possible and yet filling and tasty for the many hungry family members . And mainly made without much fuss as the ladies had loads of other duties too ! So this thick healthy dosa like breakfast was quite popular in those days . I have already shared a sweet version.  This is a spicy version ! Now adays most like paper thin dosas but these too are no less tasty !So let’s give it a try !

Ingredients :-

  1. Wheat flour / atta – 1cup 
  2. Grated coconut – 1/4 cups
  3. Green chilli – 2 to 3 finely chopped 
  4. Jeera – 1/2 tsp  
  5. Curry leaves – a few ( chopped ) 
  6. Salt to taste 
  7. Onion chopped finely – 1 tbsp ( optional )

Method :-

Mix the flour , green chillies , jeera , coconut , curry leaves and salt . Add the onions ( if adding ), Mix well and then add water to make a thick batter , ( almost like idli batter ) !
Heat a tawa on medium heat and spread the batter a little thicker than your regular dosa ! .Drizzle  some Coconut oil or ghee over it . Cover and let cook on low to medium flame .
Check after few minutes and flip . cover and let cook . 
You can make soft maskats or crisp ones according to your choice . Enjoy this with your favourite chutney or sambhar  as an evening snack or for dinner . We have this for breakfast too !!!
