Halasina Hannu Sole(ಸೋಳೇ) is used in preparing this dosa. Dosa, as it is, is very tempting. And if it is jack fruit dosa, it is even more. I love this dosa & so does my hubby. It has a very unique taste & color. It is yellow in color. Even has a very delightful aroma to it. I prepare it on a non stick pan where as my mom prepares it on a roti maker.
As far as I've seen, amongst the people I know, who owns a roti maker, it is only mom who uses it to the core. She uses it to prepare rotis, rottis, dosas & pancakes etc., People ask her surprised as to how she manages using it multi purpose, when they can not manage cooking rotis on them.??????? That's how mummies are. Be it my mom or my mom-in law, they can prepare anything under the sun. I do understand their knowledge comes from experience. They are simply awesome.
I salute all MOTHERS for that extra ingredient they use in their cooking - which is a dash of LOVE!!!!
To Everything You Do, Just Add A Dash Of LOVE!!!!
So here's how we prepare this yellow Jack fruit Pancake, which is a very very simple procedure.
Jack Fruit - 1 big bowl, peeld & sliced to thin strands
Raw Rice - 3 cups
Salt to taste
Oil - As required
Soak the rice in water for 2 hours. Then wash it & drain the water. Now grind the rice & sliced jack fruit with very little water. Grind till you get a smooth textured batter. Now shift the batter into a vessel, add salt to taste & little water if the batter is too thick. The consistency you require is that of a normal dosa batter. Mix well.
Heat a dosa tawa or the roti maker. Once very hot just sprinkle water on the tawa & wipe it off with a cloth. This is to make the tawa suitable for the batter to be spread on. Take a ladle full of batter & pour it on the tawa & spread it with the back of the spoon.
Pour a tsp of oil around the dosa or the pancake, & let it cook, covered.
Once done on one side, just turn it over to cook the other side of the dosa.
After it is done, just remove & serve it hot with any chutney or sauce or honey.
It would also taste good, all by itself.
