Homemade Dosa Batter as needed
Oil for pan frying


Heat  a tawa on hight heat and as soon as it gets hot take a ladleful of batter and pour in the center. Not spread it evenly so that it form into round dosa.

Now drizzle some oil on the sides of the dosa and all over the dosa..

Now take a flat spatula and smooth the top of the dosa so that the top stays smooth .

Let it cook for somemore time untill you see a light golden colour around the edges..

Fold into thirds and serve with chutney..

    dosa looks so crispy......

  4. Looks superb. A very Happy New Year to you and your family.

  5. Happy new year to you...the dosa looks delicious.

  6. Wow, Aarthi. I took a peek at making the batter and it sure looks pretty tedious to me. And I would think a regular kitchen blender might not get it to be as smooth as it should be.
    This looks really good but I think I'll just go to the corner Indian restaurant for my dosas. :D

  7. Amazing Aarthi, my hubby wants me to visit ur home to learn these ha ha, y would why waste time learnign when i gorge on them myself with u around to cook. Just kidding, your pictorial is good enough to inspire, now next visit to mom's place will flick her iron skillet :)

  8. aarthi ur blog show ur creative efforts of the skillful hands

  9. Just a suggestion for better browning of dosa.

    Soak methi seeds in water overnight and grind it along with the urad Dhall. The batter rises/ferments better and gives you lovely golden brown dosas.

  10. Hi how I love dosas sadly aarthi I am not able to make one it gets messed up as soon as I try to spread it. Can you demonstrate some technique for that. Thanks

  11. @AnonymousU should never spread dosa on oiled tawa, oil the tawa well and then wipe off the oil with a towel, then spread the dosa it will spread evenly adn crisp up.

  12. Bt aarthi how to make batter smooth.. my dosa batter is always been little bit course

  13. @Amita Choudharygrind urad dal till fluffy and fine and smooth. Rice grind it for longer time, it wont get super smooth, but a little coarse is good too

  14. I too face the same problem. As soon as I try to spread the batter it starts to mess up and looks like its boiling. Also my dosas are coming out dry and white. Please give me a solution for this

  15. @Anonymousi think it is because of too much rice..
