Hot Hot Dosa!


I love Dosas….especially when my mom makes onion chutney with it! Umm…mouthwatering…My dad loves it too, my mom says i have inherited all his foodie tastes…..and my mom even makes me wonder saying ” U just eat like your dad too, the style, and way of eating!!” 

Coming to the recipe , once batter is made and ready, its easy to make and batter once made stays for about 1 week if you keep in fridge after using! So perfect for breakfast or evening dish !

It has pulses and rice so, though its not as good in proteins as Dal/Pappu its really good and is not high calorific value either coz though there are carbohydrates from rice, its never as much calories as rice alone!

What You Need:

For the Batter

  • Urad dal /black gram – 1 cup
  • Rice – 2 cup [ you can use parboiled rice , i dont prefer though]
  • salt – 2 tsp
  • rice flakes – 2tsp [adding rice flakes gives the crispiness to the dosa , for very thin dosas this is a must!]

How to do?

  • Soak the dal and rice mixture for about 8hrs , I say do it overnight or soak it before going to office in the morning so that its ready by the time u come back .
  • Now, grind the batter into a smooth batter, add salt and water to make it free flowing!
  • Set it aside for the night if possible , but you can make dosas right away as well but I dont prefer!
  • Now take a tawa, after it gets heated, pour a cup of batter and smoothly make a round shape.
  • Add oil around it, and let it get to light brown and flip it over nicely, by starting from edges ,round the dosa and then slowly through the middle .
  • let it for some time and take off the pan. Thats it ready to eat Dosas!

I tried explaining it but dont know how well it was! 

anyways, serve these dosas with Onion chutney or Coconut chutney and enjoy!!


Variations –

There are various variations of Dosas like Masala, Onion, Rava etc…I shall post them as and when I make them! 🙂

The basic steps are the same, as above!
