soaking urad dal:

  • clean 1 cup urad dal (husked and spilt black gram) in water.

making urad dal dosa batter:

  • pour the batter in a vessel. add salt and mix well.
  • if the batter is too thick, you could add some more water. but don't make the dosa batter thin as it will be difficult spreading the dosas on the griddle.
  • the batter should be of pouring consistency.

  • heat a non-stick tava or thick iron griddle. now take a ladle full of batter. pour the batter and gently spread the batter starting from the center and moving towards outwards.
  • cook the dosa on low to medium flame. make the urad dal dosas, the way you would normally make dosas with oil or ghee.
  • when you see the batter cooked on top.
  • drizzle ¼  to ½ teaspoon oil on the edges and center.
