  • 1 cup - Urad Dal
  • 3-3.25 cups - Rice
  • 1/4 cup - Channa dal
  • 2-3 tbsp - Methi seeds
  • 2-3 tbsp - poha, thick
  • 1 tsp - ghee/butter/oil for each dosa
  • Salt, to taste
  • How to Make Paper Plain Dosa:

    1. Soak the dal, rice, methi seeds and poha with enough water for at least 4-6 hours or overnight.
    2. Grind the soaked ingredients with enough water to a very smooth paste. Keep in mind not to add too much water and make the batter runny.
    3. Allow batter to ferment in a warm place for about 8-10 hours. Make sure the container has enough room for the batter to rise.
    4. Add salt to the fermented batter and mix well.
    5. Place a non-stick griddle on medium heat.
    6. Once hot, pour a ladle full of batter at the centre.
    7. With the back of the ladle, spread the batter thinly; start from the centre and work outwards, in a fast circular motion.
    8. Pour few drops of ghee/oil all over the dosa and also at the edges.
    9. Let cook on medium heat until it turns golden brown in colour.
    10. Remove from griddle and serve immediately with coconut chutney, sambar, kurma, saagu or any other side dish of your choice.
