plain Dosa/Rice pancake

I guess everyone knows this ..but still i am posting becoz i just want to include some basic recipes too in my blog :)

I will post Instant/different types of dosa's in my future postings!!


Rice-3 cups
Uruddal/black gram -1 cup


1.wash and soak both dal and rice seperately .soak it 6 to 8 hrs before you want to make.

2.Grind seperately both dal and rice using little water.Mix both grinded rice and dal mixture.Add salt to the batter atlast and keep it outside for atleast 12 hrs,so ferementation occurs and dosa tastes more after fermentation.

3.take tawa,heat it and add one tsp of oil ,pour the batter on to the tawa and spread it and fry it on both sides till golden brown.

4.Enjoy dosa with peanut chutney/any chtney!!
