Kalingadache god pole (Sweet watermelon dosas )

Watermelon is one of the fruits abundantly available in summers and is in great demand too due to its cool watery texture. Eating cooled cubed of watermelon on a summer noon is really very refreshing .
These dosas are regularly being made whenever we bring home a watermelon ever since I can remember
and still I am never fed up with them . The reason being their softness. They taste good either hot or cold.
The recipe I am posting today usually is make with the rind ( white part of melon) and rice. But I have tried using some watermelon cubes in it and the result was I got far more softer and fluffier dosas than usual.
I have hence decided to regularly use melon cubes in these dosas.


Ingredients :

1 small ...................water melon
2 cups ....................raw rice
2 tsbp.....................rice flakes ( pohe)
3 tbsp....................jaggery
1 tsp.......................fenugreek seeds methi
 1 pinch .................salt





Method :

Wash and soak the rice  and in water for 3 to 4 hours.
Cut the melon and remove the seeds.
Along with the red fleshy part also use the white rind .
Grind rice , methi and rice flakes with very little water to smooth paste.
Now add the melon cubes along with the rind and again grind for 2 to 3 minutes.
Keep the batter for 3 to 4 hours to ferment.
On a non stick tawa spread the batter and cover with lid for 2 minutes.
When bubbles appear and the upper side becomes dry turn them over and cook the other side.
As these dosas are very very soft, turning them over the other side can be slightly tricky.
They taste delicious when had with pickle and saltless home made butter .
