Rava-Ridge Gourd Dosa + Spicy Pooris.

Ridge Gourd Rava Dosa is prepared with Patrode spices like coriander seeds, tamarind pulp, jaggery, coconut and jeera(cumin) seeds. I used medium sized Rava (samolina) instead of raw rice. Ridge gourd rava dosa is light and healthy and will be surely liked by all age group people.
Things Needed: 
Ridge Gourd : 3 to 4
Rava (medium size): 2 Cups
Wheat flour: 1 Table spoon
Coconut: 1/2 cup or 2 Table spoons.
Coriander seeds: 3 Table spoons
Jeera(cumin seeds): 1 Tea spoon
Red chilly: 6 to 8
Asfoetida or Ingh: a pinch (1/4 Tea spoon if it is a powder form)
Tamarind Pulp: 1 Table spoon
Jaggery: 2 to 3 Table spoons
Salt : to taste
Turmeric powder: a little
Oil: 1/2 cup.
Ready to serve Ridge Gourd Dosa.

1. Wash Ridge Gourd and remove the edges and remove the skin of the ridge gourd. (Outer skin of the ridge gourd can be used for preparing chutney or dal).
2. After removing the outer part, cut the ridge gourd in to circle and keep the pieces aside.
3. Grind fresh coconut, tamarind pulp, turmeric powder, coriander seeds and jeera using little water. Add jaggery  to the dough and keep it aside.
4. Now take a big bowl and put rava and wheat flour. Add ground coconut mixture and mix it nicely. Add required water. ( The dough should be like idly batter).
5. Add salt to the prepared dough. Mix it nicely.
6. Now keep a dosa pan on the fire. Heat and sprinkle oil on the pan. Dip cut ridge gourd circle shape pieces in Rava - spice dough and arrange it on the pan in circle shape joining one another. Sprinkle 1 more spoon of oil on the top and cook for 1 minute on medium heat.
7. Now turn the dosa on the other side and cook for 1 minute. See that it does not get burnt.
8. Serve Ridge Gourd Rava dosa with a spoon of butter on the top of hot dosa.
Note:  Cook on medium flame to get the best result. You can add more jaggery if you like sweet taste. See that dough is not watery.  If it becomes watery add a table spoon of wheat flour. This can bind the dough nicely. Use a tender ridge gourd. You can also try with capsicum or onion or cabbage, using the same dough.
