  • Wash all the dals nicely in tap water 2-3 times.

  • Transfer to grinder/blender add about ½ Cup water, add ginger, green chillies, cumin seeds and salt. Grind to a smooth paste.
  • Batter should be smooth and not of very thin consistency.
  • To check the consistency of batter, dip a spoon in batter and take it out. It should coat nicely the back of spoon.
  • Keep the batter to rest for about 15-20 min.
  • Heat a griddle on medium flame. Splash some water. It should sizzle. Griddle is ready for making dosa,
  • Drop a ladle full of batter in griddle and immediately spread it in circular motion., just like crepes or pancake batter.
  • Drop oil or ghee, let it cook for a minute. The sides of dosa will start to leave once the dosa is cooked from bottom.
  • Flip it with the help of spatula and cook for few seconds from the other side also.
  • Serve hot with chutney or ketchup. Kids will love to have it with Aloo masala.

Substitute for Poha(rice flakes)-- Rice Flour, rice soaked for 4-5 hrs, cornstarch(flour) or chickpea flour.
