1 cup raw rice (chawal)
salt to taste
ghee for greasing

  1. Soak the rice in water for at least 2 hours. Then drain and wash it.
  2. Add water and grind to make a very fine batter.
  3. Add salt and more water if necessary to make a thin batter of pouring consistency.
  4. Heat a small non-stick tava and sprinkle a little water on it. It should steam immediately. Wipe hard with a slice of onion or potato.
  5. Grease the tava with a little ghee and pour a ladleful of batter from a little height so that you get plenty of holes. Do not try to spread the batter with a spoon.
  6. Cook the dosa on one side only taking care to see that it does not brown. Fold it twice to make a quarter circle.
  7. Repeat with the remaining batter to make more dosas. Serve hot.
