How to Make Thuppa Dosa- Ghee Dosa

  • Wash and soak rice, urad dal separately with enough water.
  • Wash and soak rawa as well as beaten rice separately.
  • Mix one cup all-purpose flour/maida with around 1/2 - 3/4 cup water and prepare a lump-free, thick batter.
  • After soaking for 4-5 hours, separately grind the ingredients mentioned in step 1 and step 2 in a mixer to get dosa batter with semi-thick consistency.
  • Now mix the all-purpose flour/maida mixture prepared in step 3 to it and add salt to taste and allow it to ferment overnight.
  • Heat a tawa/flat non-stick griddle and pour a ladle full of batter on hot tawa and do not spread it thinly.
  • Just slightly spread it and cook for 2-3 minutes, covered, on a high flame.
  • Now add around 1/4 to half tsp of ghee on top and spread it all over the dosa.
  • Now flip it for a while and transfer to the serving plate.
  • Serve hot with desired chutney and sambar.
