Just like rotis made of different flours have different flavours, dosas made of varied batters also have varied flavours. Not only the taste but the aroma and texture of the dosa also varies according to the ingredients used in the batter.

Some batters need to be fermented while some do not. The Poha Yellow Moong Dal Dosa is of the latter variety. While it requires an hour and a half of soaking, the batter does not need to be fermented.

The appetizing aroma of fenugreek seeds, the crisp texture acquired from poha, the semi-spicy flavour and nice colour set this dosa a notch higher than others. Relish it fresh off the tava with chutney and hot Sambhar .

    Tips to make perfect dosa

    1. Make sure to add poha and fenugreek seeds after the rice and urad dal has been washed well.
    2. If tava gets too hot then sprinkle some water to bring down the temperature of the tava. By doing so the dosa will not stick to the pan. The ideal temperature of tava is very important to make Poha yellow moong dal dosa.
    3. If you have made batter in large quantity then always take required amount of batter in a separate bowl and adjust the consistency of batter.

    Tarla Dalal    Hi, once you have poured the batter on the hot tava and spread it.. allow it to cook for sometime.. as it takes little more time to get crisp..
