Preparation Method :

  • Grind the rice, dhal and fenugreek with the cooked rice to a fine consistency.
  • Pour the smooth batter into a container. Add salt and beat the batter well with your hand.
  • Cover the container with a plate and leave it overnight in a warm place in the kitchen.
  • The rice batter will ferment and double in volume. Ensure that the container is deep enough to allow the batter to increase in volume.
  • The next morning, the fermented batter will be frothy. Stir the batter for few minutes and set aside.
  • Heat a non-stick skillet or tawa. When hot, smear it with a piece of cloth dipped in oil, to make the batter spread evenly.
  • Pour spoonful of batter into the centre of the skillet.
  • Spread the batter by moving a ladle in concentric circles over it, starting from the centre of the circle and working towards the edges, to spread the batter thinly and evenly.
  • Cover and cook over medium heat for 1-2 minutes. Make plain, soft dosai , cook on one side only.
  • Pour a teaspoon of the oil around the dosai. Remove the dosai from the skillet on to a plate.
  • Spread a little coconut chutney evenly over it with a spoon.
  • Spread spoonful of potato masala over the chutney on one half of the dosai. Fold the other half over the potato and pat down gently with a spatula.
  • Lightly brush both sides of the dosai with ghee or oil. Heat the skillet again over low-medium heat and brown both halves of the dosai evenly.
  • Transfer the dosai to a serving plate, repeat the same with the other dosai. Wipe the skillet with a paper or cloth towel before cooking each dosai.
  • Serve with Sambhar and chutney.
