How to Make Recipe
making dosa batter
- add both the rice flour and urad dal flour into a mixing bowl.
- pour water and mix well. the batter has to be smooth and without any lumps and evenly mixed. the consistency should be that of a thick batter but still flowing.
- pour the batter from the mixing bowl in another bowl. cover and allow to ferment at room temperature overnight for 9-10 hours or more if required.
- once the batter is fermented well, then add salt to the dosa batter and mix well.
making dosa recipe
- heat an iron griddle or tava. smear with oil lightly.
- take a spoon or ladle with the batter and gently start spreading the dosa in circular rounds. if using non stick pan, then avoid smearing oil on the pan. since you won't be able to spread the dosa batter properly on the non stick pan.
- drizzle oil on the top and sides and let one side cook.
- when one side of dosa is browned, flip and cook the other side.
- fold the dosa and serve hot with coconut chutney or vegetable sambar.
- make dosa in the same way with the batter.

stepwise easy dosa recipe with urad flour and rice flour
1. add both the rice flour and urad dal flour into a mixing bowl.
2. pour water and mix well. i usually use my hands to mix the batter very well and break the lumps. the batter has to be smooth and without any lumps and evenly mixed.
3. pour the batter from the mixing bowl in another bowl. cover and allow to ferment at room temperature overnight for 9-10 hours.
4. the consistency of batter the next day. due to it being cold here, the batter fermented not much. so i kept for an additional 4 hours more. the batter does not triple or double up like the dosa batter made with ground rice and lentils. but there is a faint sour aroma in the batter. a tip is to add 1 tbsp yogurt along with water before fermentation. you can reserve a few teaspoons of the fermented batter and then freeze it. use it later as a starter to ferment the next batch of dosa.
5. add salt once the batter is fermented and mix well.
6. heat an iron griddle or tava. smear with oil lightly. take a spoon or ladle with the batter and gently start spreading the dosa in circular rounds. if using non stick pan, then avoid smearing oil on the pan. if the batter is too thick to spread evenly, then just add a few tbsp of water in it.
7. drizzle oil on the top and sides and let one side cook.
8. when one side is browned, flip and cook the other side of dosa.
9. fold the dosa and serve hot with coconut chutney or sambar. repeat making dosa similar way with the batter. here i served the dosa with onion tomato chutney.
