For preparing paper dosa, wash and soak the raw rice and split black gram for 4 hours.
Drain the water out. Grind rice flour, raw rice and split bengal gram to make a smooth paste using enough water to get a batter of coating consistency.
Heat a non-stick tava
When hot, pour a ladle full of the batter and spread it using circular motion to make a paper thin dosa.
Cook on one side, pouring a little oil along the edges while cooking.
When it becomes crispy, roll it up.
Repeat the same procedure for the remaining batter.
Paper dosa is ready. Serve hot with potato bajji.
Tip: If you take time to spread the batter in circular motion, lift the pan slightly of the fire and go in steady circular motions till it is thin.
