Moolangi Polo (Spicy Radish Dosa)

Moolangi Polo is a spicy radish dosa, which goes very well as a side dish to rice. It can be preared within 15-20 minutes. I got this recipe from my Mother-in-law. She makes it often, as it is my father-in-law's favorite. In one of my earlier posts, I had posted Moolangi Ambado. This dosa is very similar to those ambados (fritters). Only variation I did was, the addition of onion.
My MIL had mentioned about this recipe long back and hence tried making it. Guess what? It tasted so good. Are you worrying about the smell of the radish? Don't worry, it smells bad only during the time of grating. The dosa has a very mild smell of it. So try making this and enjoy!

  • Grated Radish, packed- 1 cup
  • Rice flour- 1/2 cup (add more if required)
  • Onion, small- 1
  • Red chilli powder- To taste
  • Salt- To taste
  • Oil- For shallow frying

Grate the radish and chop the onion. Take them together in a bowl and add rest of the ingredients. Mix well (I didn't add water, as radish has enough moisture)

Now divide the mixture into 4-5 portions. Put one portion of the mixture on the heated pan and start spreading, to get a round shape (You can spread it thick or thin)

Add little oil on the dosa, if using. Wait until the lower side of the dosa turns golden brown. Now flip the dosa, so as to fry the other side. Let it remain until it turns golden brown. Transfer the dosa to a plate. Moolangi Polo is ready!!

Serve it as a side dish to rice. Above measurement serves two people.
