Savoury Soya Pancakes / Soya Dosai

I was thinking about what to make for the JFI-Soya event hosted by Sia, went to the local indian grocery store and found soya flour & nuggets. I was thrilled!!! Having found the flour, I didn't know what to make. The only way I've used soya flour, is to add to the wheat flour & make chhapathis. Now, what do I make? Inspiration struck and I thought of soya dosai.

Soya Flour - 1 cup
Rice flour - 1/4 cup
Soya yoghurt - 12 oz or 340 gms ( I used 2 packs of plain soya yoghurt)
Water - as needed
Chili - 3
Ginger - 2 inch
Coriander - as you like
Salt to taste
Oil to cook

Mix soya and rice flours
Chop chilies, ginger & coriander finely and add to flours
Pour in the soya yoghurt and mix. Add water as needed to make a smooth paste. Batter should be a little thinner than regular dosai consistency.
Heat a griddle with raised edges, pour 1-2 ladles of batter in the middle in a circle. Sprinkle a few drops of oil on the sides. Cover and cook for 30-40 secs. Remove cover and turn dosai to cook other side for 30-40 secs or till dark brown spots appear.

This dosai takes a long time to cook as it is thick. Make sure to keep a medium heat setting, else the dosai will turn brown too quickly & won't be fully cooked. So, check the centre before removing from griddle. Tasty by itself or with dosa molaga podi. My husband liked it with kothamalli thogayil too!

I use soy products such as tofu and soy milk frequently, but I have not yet used soy flour...

Soya pancakes looks very tasty!
