Dosa-Cone dosa & Carrot Dosa

   I use the same idly /dosa batter for dosa also. The above dosa made using idly batter only. But have tried dosa with separate batter which is given below. With this recipe u can make perfect dosa batter which gives u crispy and tasty dosa.
  1. Idly rice  3 cups
  2. Urad dal   3/4 cup
  3. Methi seeds   1 tsp
  4. Channa dal   1-2 tbsp
  • soak everything for about 4-5 hrs.
  • Grind to a smooth batter (rava like consistency,rice should not be grinded too smooth)
  • To the batter add enough salt and mix well (use hands) and make the batter little thinner and keep it in warm place.
  • Allow it to ferment for 6-8hrs.
  • After fermenting mix the batter well n its now ready to make dosa.
Cone Dosa 

     This is not a variety of dosa ..simply the shape and presentation attracts people..particularly Kids. My kids always ask me Cone dosa only.

Heat a tawa, Pour a ladle of batter and spread it as thin as possible drizzle oil or ghee all around and close the tawa with lid for a minute..then open the lid, cut crispy dosa from the centre (radially) to one end using the spatula and roll it as a cone.
