About this Recipe
Pohaa, also known as pauwa, sira, chira, or aval, is a type of flattened rice from the Indian subcontinent. Before flattening, rice is parboiled so that it can be consumed with little to no cooking. When added to a liquid, whether hot or cold, these rice flakes swell as they absorb water, milk, or any other liquid. The flakes range in thickness from nearly translucently thin (the more expensive varieties) to nearly
four times thinner than a normal rice grain.
What is the significance of the term set dosa?
Set dosa is not only referred to in Karnataka because it is served in a set of three. This name was given to it because it is served with saagu and coconut chutney. Although the size of the set dosa appears to be small, by the end of the second dosa, everyone would agree that it was more than enough.
Ingredients for Set Dosa Recipe :
Aval / Poha / Flattened Rice :
The Indori poha has a distinct sweet-sour flavour and is frequently served with jalebi. Other flavours and spice blends are added to the poha. In Maharashtra, the onions are lightly sauteed, and the texture, flavour, and name of kanda batata poha in both
Maharashtra and Gujarat are derived from potato.
Fenugreek seeds, also known as methi, have a tangy, bitter flavour. Learn how to prepare them for the best flavour, how to buy the best, and how to properly store them. This small, hard, mustard yellow seed, known as methi in Indian cooking, has a tangy, bitter, burnt- sugar flavour.
Urad Dal :
Urad dal is used on a daily basis in South Indian households to make batters for vada, idlis, and dosas, as well as an important ingredient in the tempering of most south Indian dishes. When prepared with fried tomato, garlic, and onion, boiled dal tastes delicious.
