Coconut : 1 Cup
Curd : 1/2 Cup
Urid dal : 1 handful.
Salt : required
Oil : 2 to 3 Table spoons
Ghee : optional
Method :1. Wash and soak raw rice, urid dal (together) for 3 to 4 hours. Soak flattened rice separately.
4. Remove from the mixi jar and put it in a bowl. Let the dough be like idli dough. (do not add much water).
7. Mix the ferment dough and take a spoon of dough and put it on the hot tava. Spread it slightly.
Do not add much water. If the dough becomes thin the dosa won't taste good and it is hard to prepare.
Adding ghee or oil while preparing dosa is optional. You can use non stick pan instead of normal tava.
Time : 20 minutes. (Soaking, grinding and ferment time is separate.)
Serves : 5 to 6
You can also prepare Paddu or Guli appa with same dough. (Adding spices or onion to the dough is optional).
Keep a paddu pan and heat. Apply each dip with oil or ghee. Put a small quantity of dough and sprinkle oil again on the top of the guli appa. Cover and cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Remove the cover and turn the other side of guli appa and cook for 30 seconds and remove from the pan. Repeat the same with remaining dough. Serve with the side dish you have prepared..
