One of the most popular andhra dish is this one. We make this dosa often, since it is so healthy. Amma makes it often, but she do it in a different way. She add chopped up onions, chilli, coriander leaves, curry leaves into the batter and make the dosa. She also add less rice for green gram, so the resulting pancake is much softer and thicker.
I adopted this recipe from vahchef. I like my dosa crispier, so i added little extra rice. If you need your dosa softer add less rice. I served it with keralan coconut chutney which will be posted very soon.
