Here is the recipe for dosa and idly batter.


Boiled rice/Idly rice/Pulungarisi: 4 cups
Urad dal: 1 cup
Salt to taste


Soak the rice and dal seperately for about 6-8 hours. Grind them seperately into a smooth paste. Add salt and mix the two together well.
Allow to ferment overnight.
The same batter can be used for paper dosa, idlys and for uthappam.

However depending on your taste you can follow some variations for the dosa batter.
You can soak 1 1/2 tspn of methi seeds and add the same when grinding the batter.

If you like the dosas to be golden brown you can soak about 2 tblspn of channa dal and add the same when grinding the batter.

Note: Do not dilute the batter before fermentation. Also, do not forget to add the salt before fermentation :)

Ciao till next time...Have fun! Vidya.
