Crispy Cup Dosa

No, this dosa doesn’t look like a cup. It is called the crispy cup dosa, because one cup each of every ingredient is used—also making it easy to remember and repeat.

A thoughtful combination of fermented dal paste and besan enables you to make this dosa thin, crispy and really golden!

  3. Transfer the mixture into a deep bowl, cover with a lid and keep aside to ferment in a warm place for 12 hours.
  4. Once fermented, add the besan, ¼ cup of water and salt and mix very well till no lumps remain.
  5. Heat a non-stick tava (griddle), sprinkle a little water on the tava (griddle) and wipe it off gently using a muslin cloth.
  6. Pour a ladleful of the batter on it and spread it in a circular motion to make a 175 mm. (7”) diameter thin circle.
  7. Smear a little oil over it and along the edges and cook on a medium flame till the dosa turns golden brown in colour and crisp.
  8. Fold over to make a semi-circle or a roll.
