usually i prepare set dosa without curd and i have shared the recipe here – set dosa recipe. another variation of these dosas are poha dosa which are again very soft and light dosa. recipe is here – poha dosa recipe.

in this curd dosa recipe too, poha is added. poha is flattened rice. i have used thick poha. you can also use thin poha. i have also added urad dal as some protein is always better, but you can skip also.

since curd dosa stays soft even after a few hours, you can pack them in kids tiffin box too. serve these soft dosa with coconut chutney, potato sagu or veg sagu or vegetable korma or idli podi.

recipe notes

few tips for curd dosa recipe:
  • use only fresh curd. do not use sour curd as then the dosa becomes too sour. 
  • a generous pinch of baking soda can be added in the batter before fermenting. 
  • you can ferment for less time if you want eg 3 to 4 hours. in this case do add a generous pinch of baking soda or about ⅛ teaspoon baking soda. 
  • instead of curd, you can also use buttermilk.
  • you can also soak everything in curd+water solution if you plan to soak and ferment for less time. 
  • you can skip urad dal if you want. 
  • you can use any variety of short grained regular rice. 
  • parboiled rice or idli rice can also be used instead of regular rice. 
  • since proper fermentation is related to the temperature, if living in a cold city, do keep the batter to ferment for more hours.
