1 cup raw short-grained rice (chawal) / par-boiled rice (ukda chawal)
1/3 cup urad dal (split black lentils)
5 to 7 fenugreek (methi) seeds
1 tbsp rice flakes(optional) , soaked and drained

1 tbsp besan (Bengal gram flour)

Method
For the dosa batter (makes approx. 3 cups)

    For the dosa batter (makes approx. 3 cups)
  1. Clean, wash and soak the rice in enough water for atleast 3 to 4 hours.
  2. Clean, wash and soak the urad dal and fenugreek seeds together in enough water for atleast 3 to 4 hours.
  3. Drain the rice, add the rice flakes, add a little water (approx. ¼ cup of water) and blend in a mixer to a smooth paste.
  4. Drain the urad dal and fenugreek seeds, add a little water (approx. 1 tbsp of water) and blend in a mixer to a smooth paste.
  5. Combine the rice paste and urad dal paste, mix well and cover and allow it to ferment in a warm place for atleast 6 to 8 hours.
  6. Add ½ cup of water, salt and besan and mix well.
  7. Remove 1 cup of the prepared batter to make dosas and store the remaining batter in an air-tight container in a deep-freezer.

How to proceed

    How to proceed
  1. Pour ¼th of the batter on the greased non- stick tava (griddle)(refer handy tip) and spread in a circular motion to make a 225 mm. (9") thin dosa.
  2. Smear 1 tsp of oil over it and cook till the dosa turns brown in colour and crisp.
  3. Fold over to make a semi-circle or a roll.
  4. Place the dosa on a plate and serve immediately with coconut chutney, green garlic chutney and sambhar.
  5. Repeat with the remaining ingredients to make 3 more plates.

Handy tip:

    Handy tip:
  1. Before making the dosas grease the non-stick tava with ¼ tsp of oil and wipe with a slice of onion or potato. Sprinkle a little water on it and wipe off using a piece of cloth.
  2. Spread a portion of the batter to make a small sample dosa, cook it and discard.
  3. This will ensure that the remaining dosas do not stick to the tava (griddle) and can be cooked easily.
