You could serve these healthy urad dal dosa with coconut chutney or sambar. It also goes well with the usual potato sabzi which is made with Masala dosa.

I have been fond of dosas since my childhood. I have to make them once or twice in a week. I can have dosas without any sabzi or bhaji or chutney. Just simple tea or coffee with dosas is enough for me.

  1. Does this taste like normal dosa?

    • no it doesn’t taste like normal dosa as the batter is not fermented.

      • could you ferment the batter or is there a particular reason why not?

        • you can ferment the batter if you want. but just keep for 4 to 5 hours. this is basically a quick method of making this dosa.
