I poured Dosa batter into a waffle iron and set it to high. Ten minutes later -- beep, beep, beep -- and it was on a plate. Coconut chutney is usually served much, much thinner, but I wanted to see how the thicker texture would fill the gaps.

Crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside.

I wanted something different for lunch, but my refrigerator is filled with leftovers. To add variety I changed the approach to something typical by using different tools: I used an American waffle maker to make an Indian dosa (link to recipe) — and it was perfect. Crisp on the outside, it gave way with a loud, satisfying crunch. Inside was the flavour of urad dal. If I had added a thinner coconut chutney, it might have made this particular Dosa soft, muted the urad dal flavour, and required a knife and fork.

  1. Wow, that looks good, I’ve never even seen coconut chutney before. But way to go — playing with the waffle iron, great idea! I’ve heard rumors of making brownies in a waffle iron and I saw an incredible idea of making STUFFING waffles with Thanksgiving leftovers (because let’s be honest, the crispy bits are best). More waffles please. 😀

      I’ve never done brownies (crisp brownies? — shudders) but I have done chocolate chip cookies. The chocolate bits burned, so I make the dough with nuts and either sprinkle chocolate chips on after, or dip in chocolate. It’s fun!
