Vegan & Gluten Free Tadka Dosa

Had remaining Idli batter, made idlis the first day and with the remaining batter made this Tadka Dosa for breakfast, these are so crisp and perfect.  Can have them for brunch or as a main course for a change.
It's just super yumm by itself , you  can enjoy this with any chutney or pickle. I served this with Homemade Idili / Dosa Podi ( recipe will be up soon) and  Raw Mango Moong Dal Chutney / Mamidikaya Pesarapappu Pachadi - Andhra Style  
2 Cups Leftover Idli batter - for the recipe Here
1  Large Onion - finely chopped
2  Green chillies - finely chopped
3 Tablespoons Coriander leaves - finely chopped
A Sprig Curry Leaves - finely chopped
2 Tablespoon Oil
½ Teaspoon Cumin Seeds
1 Teaspoon Mustard Seeds
A Pinch of Asafoetida

Heat little oil in a pan on medium high flame, add mustard, cumin seeds  when they crackle. Add finely chopped onion, green chillis and curry leaves. Saute till the onions are slightly golden color and add a pinch of asafoetida and salt to taste.  Switch off the flame, add finely chopped coriander leaves and mix well. Cool this mixture.
Add this cooled mixture along with the oil to the batter, mix it well. 
Heat a non stick pan / griddle, grease it with oil with a brush. When hot, spread a ladle full of batter on the hot tawa/ griddle  
When it look like , dry on top and the bottom is brown, brush oil on top.
 then flip to the other side once it's done on that side. Try to spread it thinly.
When done see the brown spots on top, do no brown it too much. 
Take it out on to a serving plate like wise make the more dosas with remaining batter.
Serve hot.. Enjoy or with chutneyHomemade Idili / Dosa Podi, these are so crisp and perfect.
