Karuppu ulundu dosai, also known as azhagar kovil dosai, an authentic temple prasadam from the temple kitchen. A thick pancake made of rice and black gram dal.
The recipe was from the temple Madapalli/Temple Kitchen and from a person who serves the Lord Kalazhagar on a daily basis. The temple is at the foot hills of Azhagar Malai, Madurai and also one of the 108 Divya Desams of Lord Vishnu.
The Dosa is cooked in a panchaloga tawa, a giant-size dosa pan made of 5 alloys. The dosa is deep fried in ghee. The batter for Azhagar dosa is made in morning and offered evening.
Only one Dosa is made in a day. The dosa is torn into pieces and given with black chana sundal to the Ghosti (a set of people singing hymns). However, during auspicious days and festivals, there might be more people in the Ghosti, so the dosa is made accordingly.
The dosa batter is spiced with pepper, cumin and ginger which gives it an unique taste. The dosa can be made thick or thin according to your wish. I made paper thin dosa for our dinner and we loved it. The taste resembled Anjaneyar Kovil Vada. I served the dosa with Urad dal and sesame seeds chutney.
