Sorrakaya Appachi / Bottle-Gourd Dosa


Learnt from: My Mom.

Serves: 15 Dosas

Ingredients:

Bottle gourd / Lauki / Sorrakaya or Anapakaya --- 1 small or 2 cups of grated bottle gourd
Rice flour --- 2 Cups (adjust)
Green chilies --- 4
Onions --- 1 ¼ of big one
Red chilly powder --- 1 tsp
Salt --- as per taste


Process of making batter:

Peel, core, & grate bottle-gourd.


Chop green chilies into small pieces. Add green chilies to the grated bottle-gourd.
Chop Onions into small pieces. Add them to the grated bottle-gourd.
Don’t add water…from the grated bottle gourd itself the water will come. Add rice flour little by little and mix it. Make a thick batter out of it.
Add red chilly powder and enough salt to the grated bottle-gourd and mix well.


Let it sit for half an hour.


Process of making Dosa:

Heat griddle.
Take handfuls of batter to ur hand. Toss the batter to become like a round ball.
Keep the batter ball on the griddle and press them with ur finger-tips to make a patty. You can make one big dosa or 3 small dosas on the griddle. But it is easy to make smaller patties and frying them. So I prefer small patties.


Fry the dosa on either side by adding oil on it.
Transfer the dosa to a serving plate.


Back side of the dosa.


Serve Hot. Tastes good.
Use how much you want. Keep the rest in fridge. And use for the next day.

  2. Is this Dosa or Uthappam? I thought dosa in Vijayawada is thinner. Your pics are amazing. Just represnet Dosa as dosa and Uthappam as uthappam.

  3. Hi Vishwaqsena,

    In that way, it is neither a dosa nor a uthappam. It is called Sorrakaya Appachi and we call as "Sorrakaya Attu" at home and kept the same name. Didn't think much about it. I named it as dosa because non-telugu people can easily understand that.

    Don't worry too much about the names. Try it and taste it. If you have any problem you can leave a comment or your suggestion.

    Even set dosa is thicker ones but they don't call it as uthappam. They call it as dosa only.

    Don't worry too much about the names. Try it and taste it. If you have any problem you can leave a comment or your suggestion. Anyway, I have changed the name.
