Very often when we make variations in the shape or the colour of a dish that is normally served, children show an interest in eating it. This dosa is one such variation. Have you noticed how, in some restaurants, hot, crispy dosas are brought to the table, shaped like a cone? As a child, the cone used to remind me of a cap, and I have always called it thoppi(cap) dosa. Yesterday, I tried replicating the shape at home, and found that it is quite easy to do.
What you need:
A non stick dosa griddle
Two wooden spatulas
How to make it:
Pour a ladle of batter on the hot griddle. Spread it into a thin circle. Let this cook on low heat until well browned and crisp. Do not turn over.
Holding down the dosa with one spatula, use the other one to make a cut from the center of the dosa to one end.
Fold this as shown in the pic below.
Now roll the other side over this to form a cone. Place the crisp cone on a plate and serve it hot with chutney/sambar/molaga podi.
