  • 2 Cups Rice preferably parboiled
  • 1/2 Cup Urad dal
  • 1/2 tsp Fenugreek seeds
  • 2 tsp Salt
  • Oil

For the Masala for Dosas:

  • 500 Gram Potatoes peeled and cubed, boiled
  • 1 1/2 Cups Onions sliced
  • 2 Green chilies finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp Oil
  • 1 tsp Mustard seeds
  • 6-7 Curry leaves
  • 2 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Turmeric powdered
  • 1/2 Cup Water


How to cook the recipe

  • Wash and soak the rice in one container and the dal and fenugreek seeds together in another container for 5-6 hours or over night.
  • Grind dal mixture together to a very smooth consistency. Next grind the rice smooth too and mix the two batters.
  • Add salt and enough water to make into a dropping consistency. Leave to ferment over-night till a little spongy.
  • If thickened too much, add a little water to thin a bit. Heat tawa, and brush oil over it. When really hot, splash a little water over it, and immediately pour batter onto it, spreading it thin, with a circular motion.
  • This will have to be very swift and will need a bit of practice.
  • After spreading the batter, lower the heat and dribble a little oil around the edges so that it seeps under the dosa.
  • When edges start browning a bit, pass a flat spoon under it to ease the dosa off the pan. Put desired filling in the center, and fold the two edges over.
  • Serve accompanied with sambar and chutney.

Prepare the masala filling:

  • Heat the oil in a heavy based pan and add the mustard seeds, then onions, curry leaves and green chilies, and saute over high heat till the onions are a little transparent.
  • Add the salt and the turmeric and mix well, before adding the potatoes.
  • Turn the potatoes around till well mixed, and add the water, and let it simmer, for 2-3 minutes.
  • Masala is ready.
