Dosa

Dosa is South Indian cuisine. It's simple and comfort food, we can have it anytime, we love it.



Let's collect Ingredients :

1 cup raw rice
1 cup urad dal
2 tbsp cooked rice (Optional can be skipped )
2 tbsp poha ( Optional, can be skipped)
1/2 tsp
Fenugreek seed
salt to taste
oil for cooking



Let's start cooking:

1. Wash the rice and urad daal well. Add the fenugreek seeds and soak in a little water overnight.

2. The next morningdrain all the water from the rice and urad daal, leaving a little water and soak along with the poha and cooked rice for 2 hours.

3. Grind to make a smooth paste with a little water. The consistency of the batter should be such that it thickly coats a spoon dipped in it.

4. Now add salt to taste and keep the Dosa batter aside in a warm, dark spot, covered, for 6-8 hours. After this fermentation, stir the batter well. It is now ready to make Dosas.

5. Heat a non-stick pan and grease it lightly with oil.

6. The correct amount of oil is such that it is barely visible on the pan. Now turn on the heat/ flame at medium high. Now begin to spread the batter in sweeping circular motions to form a pancake of roughly 8" diameter.


7. As soon as you have finished spreading the batter out on the pan, dip the basting brush in cooking oil and drizzle the oil all over the surface of the dosa and also around its edges.

8. Cook on one side. When crispy, fold over and serve hot.

Have it with potato bhaji, coconut chutney, sambhar.
