Method of preparation (Batter making)ada dosa batter

Soak all the ingredients together for around 4 hours. Grind to a coarse paste of medium consistency. Add salt and Hing and mix well. This batter can be used instantly to make dosas or it can be fermented overnight and used.

Spread the batter in a hot pan (image given on the right hand side) and cook on both sides with Gingely oil till golden brown.  You can either make thin and crisp dosas or put more batter to make thicker ones by not spreading the batter much.

Use Gingely oil to make dosa. Serve this hot Ada Dosa with Avial / Jaggery or with Coconut Chutney, Sambar or Gun powder.
