Category - Breakfast / Dinner

Rice - 1Cup
Toor / Tur Dal - 1/4Cup
Urad dal - 1tsp

Salt to taste

Soak Rice, fenugreek & the Dals separately for 8 to 10 hours.

Add the drained & soaked rice & the dals in a blender / grinder and blend the mixture by adding little water. Add red chillies, black pepper, curry leaves, dhaniya & jeera also to the blender when the rice mixture is blended half. Grind the mixture to smooth dosa consistency batter. Transfer the mixture to a big container and keep it covered overnight.

Once the batter is fermented and ready to make dosas, add the salt & baking soda. Mix the batter throughly and make dosas as usual.
