The very famous masala dosa! This is an authenticate fool proof recipe. Personally tried and turned out to be perfect in taste and texture both. It’s not an easy task to make a crisp dosa at home perfectly, however it requires both your cooking skills and a good batter too.

Ingredients for Dosa:

-Rice 4 cups

-Fenugreek seeds 1 tsp

-Blend to a thick paste. Add onion paste, salt and leave it to ferment for another 8 hours.

-Add water according to the consistency of the batter. It should not be too runny or too thick. It should have the right consistency so that it can spread on a flat pan (tawa) easily.

-Make crisp dosa by cooking quickly on a heated flat tawa and cool before filling it.
