- recipe by Dahlia submitted on Aug 15th 2013


Ingredients

  • Idli Batter - as required

For Orange Color

  • Tomato - 1 big
  • Red Chilies - 2

For Green Color

  • Cilantro/Mint - 1 cup
  • Green Chilly - 1
  • Cumin Seeds - 1/4 tsp

Method

Tricolor Idli/Dosa Batter

Take the required portion of the idli batter and divide it into three equal parts. Keep one part as such for the white color of the tiranga idli/dosa.

For Orange Colour

  1. Chop the tomatoes into chunks.
  2. Saute the tomatoes and red chilies for just a couple of minutes for the raw taste to go.
  3. Cool it and grind it to a smooth paste.
  4. Mix it with one portion of the batter to make the orange color of the tiranga idli/dosa.

For Green Colour

  1. Chop the cilantro (or mint leaves) roughly.
  2. Saute it with the green chilies for just a couple of minutes to remove the raw flavor.
  3. Cool it and grind it to a smooth paste.
  4. Mix it with the third portion of the batter to make the green color of the tiranga idli/dosa.

To make the tricolour Idlis

  • You can make separate idlies with the three batters and arrange it in tri color as shown in the picture below.

Alternatively, pour a tbsp of the three colored batter and make a single tri colored idli.

To make the tricolour Dosa

  1. Heat a dosa griddle. Add few drops of oil and wipe it with a kitchen towel or paper towel.
  2. Pour 1/4 of a ladle of the orange batter and spread it into a semi circle.
  3. Next add 1/4 of a ladle of the white batter and spread it to make the middle portion of the dosa.
  4. Finally pour the green batter and make the lower semi circle.
  5. Drizzle few drops of oil over the dosa.
  6. After few minutes when one side of the dosa is cooked, flip the dosa.
  7. Cook the other side too.

Make your yummy tricolor dosas. 

To make it more interesting serve it with tricolor chutney - kaara chutney, coconut chutney and ridgegourd chutney.
