  • Bowls
  • Mixer/Grinder
  • Tawa/Skillet/Griddle
  • Ladle
  • Pancake turner
  • Small bowl
  • Teaspoon


  • 1 cup rice
  • 1/4 cups urid dal
  • 1/4 tsp methi/fenugreek seeds
  • 1 1/2 cups poha
  • 1/4 tsp maida
  • 1/4 tsp sugar
  • Salt-to taste
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • Butter as needed
  • Oil as needed


  • Rinse the rice, and urid dal with the methi seeds for about 6-8 hours.
  • Just before grinding wash the poha in running water.
  • Meanwhile, strain the rice and urid dal add the poha, sugar, maida and grind to a fine batter in either the mixer/grinder or the Dosa/idli grinder machine. Use water sparingly but as needed.
  • Once the batter is ground, in case like me, you are using the mixer then mix your batter and set aside to ferment for 8 hours.
  • After 8-12 hours your batter will be nice and bubbly. Add salt and mix well.
  • Take some oil in a small bowl take a teaspoon to drizzle oil as needed. That means when your dosa sticks to the tawa.
  • Apply oil and then heat a tawa/skillet, these days I prefer to use a cast-iron skillet originally I used to use a non-stick one. ( I have provided links for both the skillets you may choose any one of them). The flame can be on a high flame.
  • Lower the flame and take a ladle of the batter pour it on the tawa, and spread out using the back of the ladle to a thin crepe. Go as thin as you can.
  • Increase the flame to medium-high. Once the Dosa is golden and crisp it can be served with potato vegetable as a filing and chutney.
  • Top the Dosa with butter and serve hot immediately.
