Ingredients for making dosa+dosa batter

Dosa Batter Recipe:

  • Soak Urad dal for about 4 hours in a vessel.
  • In another vessel soak rice and methi seeds.
  • Flattened rice makes the dosa batter soft and spongy. Just one or two fists is sufficient. If you opt for thick beatened rice, then soak it along with the rice. You can also use the thin ones. For thin beaten rice soaking is not required. Just wet it and add it along with the rice before grinding.

  • Grind/blend urad dal until it becomes a fine paste.
  • Now, grind dosa rice, methi seeds and beaten rice all together. (It is better if urad is grinded separately alone.)

  • Allow the batter over night for forming of yeast. The batter is ready for using the next morning. If you observe closely, the batter would look bulged and expanded due to yeast formation. This makes the dosa softer and tastier.

The taste differs with the kind of pan/tava that you are using. Dosa baked on an iron pan is tastier and the most traditional way of baking dosa.
