Dosa is another staple breakfast in the south India .


Urad Dal - 2 cups
Rice - 4 cups
Ratio = 1 :2 (1 cup of dal , 2 cups of rice )
Salt - 3/4 tbsp
Oil - 2 tbsp


Soak urad dal and rice together or separately as desired over night and grind them into a very fine paste adding water little by little . It should be ground to a consistency that you should be able to mix water the next day before you start making dosas. If you tend to pour more water the dosa will get stuck on the pan and come close so watch for the grinding consistency .

Mix the batter well and leave it to set over night .When you are ready to make dosa add salt to the batter and mix well . Now take little batter and add water to it mix it well . Parallely heat the Dosa pan and put the batter on it once it is hot . Make a fine circle to form a dosa .

Take 1/2 tsp of oil and put it drop by drop along the edges of the dosa after few minutes the dosa automatically leaves the pan and its easy for u to remove it from pan. Turn it on the other side and heat for a while. Dosa is now ready to be served with aloo curry or any chutney …If you want the dosa to be crispy leave it on the pan for a min or two and it will become crispy .
Always keep the pan on a medium flame once the pan is hot . Other wise the dosa gets burnt ..
