How to Make Crispy Dosa in a Blender

I found that i have not posted separate dosa batter or soft idli batter, even though i experiment a lot with these. I made my dosa batter each time differently and note down the texture of each one and find the best among them.

You can check out my tiffin sambar recipechutney recipes for sidedish.

This dosa turned out to be crispy and equally good to normal dosa. I served it with my tomato chutney recipe and it was a total hit. I was really proud that i found a perfect recipe if you dont have much time on hand. The cool thing is you can make this dosa batter in mixie, so no need to take heavy grinders out and you dont waste time in washing that up. 

So try this out and let me know how it turned out for you..

Preparation Time : 30 mins
Soaking Time : 6 Hours if you checked notes, then 30 mins
Fermenting Time : Overnight
Serves : 6 to 8


Idli Rice - 1 cup

Whole White Urad Dal / Ulundu Paruppu - 1/4 cup
Fenugreek Seeds / Methi / Vendayam - 1/2 tsp
Salt to taste
Water as needed
Oil or Ghee to make dosa


Wash and soak rice, urad dal and fenugreek seeds together for 4 to 6 hours.

Drain them. Take it in a blender and add little water at a time and make it into a smooth batter. You can use ice cold water for grinding the batter.

Transfer this to a large container. Add in salt and mix well.

Cover this and let it ferment overnight or 8 to 10 hours.

The next day, the batter should be risen well. Mix this batter well.

Add water to adjust the consistency.

Now make dosa in a hot pan, drizzle oil or ghee. use a spatula to smooth the top so it is even. Let it get golden in the bottom. Fold and serve.
