Bombay dosa with chickpea curry sauce

Serves 4
Preparation time 25 minutes
Cooking time 35 minutes

For the dosas
100g gram flour
100g rice flour
1 tsp curry paste
Salt and pepper, to taste
400ml water
2 tbsp vegetable oil, for frying

For the Bombay potato filling
300g potatoes, unpeeled 
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 onion, sliced
1 tbsp curry paste (use your favourite)
2 large tomatoes, deseeded and chopped
1 lemon, juice only
Small handful of coriander leaves

For the chickpea sauce
1 onion, sliced
1 tbsp vegetable oil 
1 jar curry sauce (use your favourite)
1 can chickpeas, drained 
Small handful of coriander leaves

To make the dosas
1 Mix all of the dosa ingredients together and allow to stand while you prepare the filling and sauce.

To make the Bombay potato filling
2 Place the potatoes into a pan of boiling water and cook until just tender. Drain the potatoes and allow to cool slightly before peeling and cutting into small chunks.

3 Heat the oil, gently fry the onion for five minutes and then add the potatoes and curry paste.

4 After five minutes add the tomatoes and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper then set to one side.

To make the chickpea sauce
5 Gently fry the onion in the oil for five minutes, then add the jar of curry sauce and chickpeas and simmer for another five minutes. Add fresh coriander to taste.

6 Reheat the Bombay potato on a low heat and keep warm while you make the dosas.

To make the dosas
7 Heat a little vegetable oil in a non-stick frying pan. Once hot, add a little batter mixture, tilting the pan to get an even coverage.

8 After 1 minute carefully turn and cook the other side. Repeat with the remaining mixture to make four dosas.

9 To serve, place a little Bombay potato in the middle of a dosa, add a little fresh coriander and roll. Either spoon a little curry sauce over the top or serve in a separate bowl.

10 Repeat with the remaining dosas. Finally, garnish with a little coriander.
