Baby Corn Dosai

Baby Corn Dosai – Baby corn is the young corn which is said to be the cereal grain taken from early harvesting of corn where their stalks are still small and immature. We can also call it as the tender immature corn. Baby corn dosai would be an additional change in making different types of dosa varieties. As I have stated in my earlier posts, I rarely prepare plain white dosa. Instead I go for millet dosa varieties or else prefer making variety doses with white dosa batter.

Note :

  • Chopping of baby corn is purely of your choice. Its better you can chop into very fine pieces.
  • Also steam the chopped baby corn for about 2-3 minutes and then fry along with onions.
  • I prefer little bigger pieces and crunchy taste so did not chop finely or even pre cook.
  • You an also use gram masala.
  • Do not flip other side to cook as the baby corn get separated.
