LOUKI DOSA/BOTTLE GOURD DOSA/SORAKKAI DOSE

Bottle gourd dosa is a simple homely savoury pancake which is an integral part of the regular menu in the South Indian households. These are enjoyed in the breakfast as well as the main course. As the name suggests, this dosa consists of bottle gourd or sorakkai/sorekai as called in Tamil. Bottle gourd is grated or pureed to add to the dosa batter along with some aromatics. All these add-ins make this dosa so flavoursome and tasteful.

These creps can be cooked instant as well as with the fermented batter. I am sharing this sorekai dosa recipe with the fermented one. For this dose, one has to start the preparations a day before. The preparations include the grinding of soaked rice and dals. This batter is then fermented for at least 6 to 8 hours or as per to the climate of your region
