We had another bumper crop of radish at the farm and apart from making the usual radish thogayal and radish chapati, I wanted to try something different. I ended up making radish dosai and this is going to stay in my repertoire for a long time as its a winner at home and got approved by the son and dad duo. Radish is a low-calorie fibre rich vegetable with only 18 calories per 100 grams. But 100 grams of the vegetable provides around 27% of Vitamin C requirements. So lets get the weekly dose of radish with this easy radish dosa. Here is our helper at the farm Vijay with our bumper crop. (P.S – He has a brother and his name is Ajith 🙂 Thala and Thalapathy rock the farm. 🙂

Here is how to do Radish Dosai.
The batter
Wash, Clean and Peel the Radishes. Steam the radish for 10 minutes in a steamer and set aside.
Take a mixie jar and add in the steamed / cooked radish along with onions, cumin seeds, fennel seeds, black pepper and asafoetida. Grind to a paste. Set aside. I have used about 3-4 medium sized radishes today for this recipe. If the Radish is big, use just two.
Note: Do NOT use any water while grinding the radish mixture.

Add the ground mixture to the regular idli-dosa batter. Here is the recipe for idli-dosa batter. Add in the chopped coriander leaves. I have not added any additional salt. The salt in the idli-dosa batter will suffice. Mix well and set aside for 10 minutes.
Note: Store bought idli-dosa batter works fine too.

Making Dosas
Heat the dosa griddle until medium hot. Add 1/2 cup batter and swirl to completely cover the dosa griddle. Sprinkle 1/4 teaspoon of oil or ghee to the dosa.

Wait for the dosa to get the brown spots here and there. Cook until underside of the radish dosa is golden brown.

Loosen the edges of the radish dosa with a steel spatula. Flip the radish dosa. Cook for 30 seconds more. Remove the radish dosa from the griddle and repeat with remaining batter.

I love it very much and have had it for more than a decade now. Its a cast iron skillet and cast iron dosa pan is the only way to go. The dosa pan you see in the picture is a Lodge Iron Dosa Pan. I highly recommend it.
UPDATE: Recently, Indian made high quality pre-seasoned cast iron pan has been introduced in the market and I am super happy to say that the manufacturer is none other than my school buddy Santosh Leelakrishnan. The cast iron tawa is proudly made in India and very reasonably priced.
