For a South Indian, idli and dosa are the staple food for breakfast and dinner, so idli-dosa batter is always stocked up. But there are times when we forgot to soak the rice and lentils and then we break our heads thinking what to cook for breakfast and dinner. Instant and no-ferment dosa and idli comes as a saviour during those times.
Today's recipe is one such dosa which does not require any fermentation. I can't call this is an instant dosa as it need few hours of soaking rice and lentils. This tomato dosa is a nice variation to the regular dosa and kids would love the pretty color of the dosa. Tomato adds a tanginess that we get in our regular dosa. The dosa does not turn hard even after it gets cold. Serve with sambar and chutney of your choice. I served with mint coconut chutney which paired well these tomato dosa.

Notes and Tips
- I prefer the dosa to be little spicy, if you prefer less spice, reduce the red chillies.
- Use ripe red tomatoes that are slightly tangy.
