How to make Dosa Batter
Making Dosa batter is very easy, there are 2 methods
4 cups of Idli Rice
1 cup of Urad dal (whole)
1 tsp of Methi Seeds
Soak Rice and Dal seperately for 3 hours and grind them separately. Whole urad dal works out very well if you don’t get it, then spilt urad dal also can be used. First grind the dal, it must not be in very smooth consistency, then gind rice to a smooth consistency and mix them. Add water as needed. Add salt and allow them to ferment in a large bowl in a warm place for 6 to 8 hours until the batter raises up.
If Idli Rice is not available, then
3 cups of Rice
1 cup of Urad dal
2 tbsp of Poha
1 tsp of Methi Seeds
Soak the Rice in hot water and Dal in normal temperature water. All other procedure are same as above except you can soak Poha 15 minutes before grinding.
Please note – Please remove a small quantity of batter without adding salt for babies.
