Dosa is as popular in South Indian cuisine as Idli is! Crisp and thin pancakes made of a rice and urad dal batter, dosas are even more exciting than idlis. In fact, while idlis are considered to be an easy, comfortable steamed food, dosas are often considered a more indulgent alternative! While dosas were traditionally made using iron griddles, nowadays non-stick tavas have made the job much easier. You can roast your dosas using oil, ghee or sometimes butter too! Enjoy them hot and crisp, with chutney and sambhar. If you are going to have the dosas after a while, make them slightly thick, so that they will remain soft and springy even after a while.

I tried this recipe and it turned out to be the best one. I have been making sodas for the past 28 years and decided to try this recipe on a whim. This is how I make my dosas now.

I had tried your dosa, sambhar & coconut chutney''s recipes. Sambhar & coconut chutney were too good. Dosa batter didn''t ferment, don''t know which step i missed. ...that batter is left. Can that be used to make something. ...

Tarla Dalal    Hi Seema, you can keep the batter for more time and let it ferment, it is very important to keep it in warm place, you can still use this batter for fermenting and use to make your dosas. Do try and share your feedback. happy Cooking!!
