My girls do not like dosa so when they do eat some dosa I better take notice and note it down.

This is one yummy and tasty dosa that they liked them and I ran out of batter. Never mind if afterwards I am told they  prefer  dosas that are paper thin and or stuffed with noodles, not these “fat-fat ones.”

I had seen the picture on Facebook and immediately bookmarked.

To Make Dosa:

  • In case you are using a non-stick tava grease it lightly. But using a cast iron one you need to grease it well.
  • Heat the tava and then pour a ladle full of the batter. There is no need to spread it.
  • Cover and cook for about 2-3 minutes.
  • Flip and cook on the other side.
  • Serve hot with chutney.
