We have tried making dosa in different kinds of pan but nothing to beat a cast iron griddle…not only does it make awesome dosas but also can make healthier dosa . So…get out your cast iron griddles and whip up some hot family favorite – DOSA.
Rice: 3 cups
Urad Daal/Horse Bean: ¾ cup
Moong daal/Green Gram: ½ cup
Poha : ½ cup
Meethi seeds: 1 tbsp
Wash and soak the above ingredients in water for about 6-8 hrs (overnight). Grind into fine paste. Let it ferment for about 3-4 hrs in summer and about 5-6 in winter. It becomes light and airy after fermentation. Add a little water if necessary. The batter should be thick ( like pancake batter) U can always add some water to the batter if you think it is too thick and does not spread well.
Heat the griddle….dosas taste best made on a cast iron griddle and healthier too. Pour a spoonful of batter in the center, spread round with the help of the back of the spoon. Pour ½ tsp of oil all around the edges and cove for 15-20 sec. We like it crispy on one side and spongy on the other…so no flipping for us …it is a personal choice …so go ahead if you like it crispy on both sides. …serve with coconut chatni, chatni pudi or malga pudi ….oh ya ! it tastes even more divine with a little ghee on it.
Refrigerator batter after use, is good for 2 weeks.
