My husband is a great lover of "MASALA DOSA" I always look for different recipes I just happen to surf your website & found interesting & mouthwatering Dosa recipe before making them I wanted confirm, Do you use Black whole dhal or half broken dhal?
instead of 4 cups of rice use three cups of rice also grind 1/2 cup of coocooked rice to make dosa little bit more soft. Please do not add baking soda.
You can make Dosa without baking soda!!!!!. After mixing the batter, place it in a lightly warm place for 8-10 hours. During winter time, preheat the oven so that it is slightly warm ....then place the batter bowl inside, MAKE SURE TO TURN THE OVEN OFF AFTER YOU PLACE THE BATTER INSIDE. The batter should rise after 8-10 hrs.
