French Dosa toast

After see many blogger attempting these dosa toast i wanted to try this with some difference. It was overwhelming when my hubby ate this and told me this taste exactly like kuzhipaniyaram ( a south indian dish made by steaming the batter made of rice and lentils in special mould) . Back in chennai we used have kuzhipaniyaram with chutney at "Hot chips"  ECR .. We used to stand near the stall when the vendor was making kuzhipaniram only to here those sounds :) .. While missing those paniyaram this recipe was filling space for our paniyaram carve. They really tasted yumm and as he said it really tasted like a paniyaram..


Dosa batter - 1 1/2 cup ( i used store bought )
Bread slices - 3 slices
Spring onion chopped greens- 1/4 cup
idli chutney pd/ mulagai podi as required
Urad dhal- 1 tsp
Mustard seeds- 1/2 tsp
oil - 1 tsp + for toasting as required
Salt to taste


  • In a pan heat oil add mustard seeds and urad dhal . let the mustard splatter and now add the spring onion greens . Saute for a while and transfer in on dosa batter..Add salt and mix well..
  • Now heat a tawa, take a slice of bread . Dip the bread in dosa batter . You have to be quick in dipping and covering the bread slice with dosa batter as the moisturecan break the bread . So dip the bread in batter and transfer it to hot tawa for toasting .
  • Now on top of this i added milagai podi as suggested by my hubby for a little spice.
  • Toast the the bread both the sides till golden brown and serve hot with some chutney or sauce.
