making dosa batter for onion tomato uttapam

  1. For dosa batter you will need 1/2 cup urad dal (split black lentils), 1 tbsp fenugreek (methi) seeds, 1 cup raw rice (chawal), 1 cup par-boiled rice (ukda chawal) and 2 tbsp thick beaten rice (jada poha). You can buy ready made dosa batter also.  You will need 1/2 kg dosa batter ( which is about 4 cups of dosa batter). If so, then skip to cooking of onion tomato uttapam. Note that this dosa batter recipe will give you 6 cups of batter so we need only 4 cups for this recipe, therfore refrigerate the balance batter for upto 7 days.  
  2. Take a deep bowl and put 1/2 cup urad dal (split black lentils) into it. 
  3. Add 1 tbsp fenugreek (methi) seeds into the bowl. Adding fenugreek seeds to dosa batter helps in the process of fermentation. Some people add cooked rice (about 2 tbsps) for the same reason. Adding cooked rice also makes the final product crispier. 
  4. Add water. 
  5. Wash the urad dal well with water to get rid of impurities if any. Drain it. 
  6. Enough water in a deep bowl and mix well. Cover with a lid and keep aside to soak for 4 hours.
  7. Drain the urad dal and fenugreek seeds using a strainer. They must have become soft enough to be ground to a paste. 
     
  8. Transfer the soaked and drained urad dal and fenugreek seeds to a mixer jar. 
     
  9. Add approx. 1 cup of water. Do not add all water at once, start with lesser amount and add water as needed. Traditionally, a stone grinder is used to prepare idli/dosa batter. If you have one, make use of it or you can also make use of a wet grinder or mixer grinder like us. Ensure the batter does not warm up while grinding. If your mixer jar gets heated quickly, make use of cold water while grinding. This will prevent the idly from turning hard. 
  10. Blend to a smooth paste. 
     
  11. Put this mixture into a deep bowl and keep aside. 
  12. Similarly, wash the par-boiled rice with water. 
  13. Also, wash the raw rice well. 
  14. Put both the rice into another deep bowl. Add the thick beaten rice into the bowl. Adding Poha or thick beaten rice to the dosa batter will make the dosas lighter. 
     
  15. Add enough water into the bowl to submerge all ingredients and mix well.  
  16. Cover the bowl with a lid and keep it aside to soak for at least 4 hours.
  17. Now, drain the soaked par-boiled rice, raw rice, and thick beaten rice using a strainer. 
  18. Transfer this to a mixer and blend to a smooth paste using approx. 1 cup of water. Make sure that the grains are ground to perfection. 
  19. Now, put the mixture into the same bowl of the urad dal batter mix well. 
  20. Add the salt to taste and mix well. 
  21. Cover the batter with a lid and keep the dosa batter  | South Indian dosa batter | dosa batter at home | aside to ferment in a warm place for at least 12 hours.  
  22. Once fermented, mix the dosa batter very well. 
     
  23. Use the dosa batter | South Indian dosa batter | dosa batter made at home | immediately to make dosas or store the batter in an air-tight container and refrigerate. The dosa batter will stay fresh for at least 1 week if refrigerated.  Right before you make Dosas, you might have to add more salt and water to adjust the consistency. If the batter becomes too runny, you can add semolina/rice flour little by little and mix well till you get the right consistency. Adding semolina also gives a beautiful color to the dosas. However, some people add about a teaspoon of sugar for the colour.
