to add body in the rice dosa batter, i have used rice flour. but you can even use whole wheat flour or millet flours. you can also temper the batter with mustard seeds, curry leaves and asafoetida (hing). even chopped onions and coriander leaves can be added. since i wanted to make a plain crisp dosa, i have not added anything.

making rice dosa

  • heat a pan and keep the flame to a low.
  • take a ladle of the batter and spread it. while spreading this instant dosa batter, do make sure that the tawa is not hot. if the pan is hot, the batter becomes difficult to spread. so the tawa should be warm or less hot. if the pan becomes hot, then remove the pan from the flame. keep the pan on kitchen counter or on a switched off stove top burner and then spread the batter.
  • also spread gently and lightly. do not be quick and be vigorous while spreading batter. once the dosa batter is spread on the tawa, then cover with a lid and let the dosa cook.
  • cook till the base becomes golden. then remove the lid.
  • drizzle some oil on the sides and the center. oil helps the dosa to be crisp. continue to cook till the base becomes nicely crisp.
  • remove and then serve.
