Benne dose ..

Ingredients and method for batter :

Dosa or idly rice : 2 cups
Urad Dal : 1/2 cup
Fenugreek seeds : 1 teaspoon
Poha : 1/2 cup ( I used thick poha )
Rice flour : 1/2 cup

Wash and soak dosa rice,urad Dal and fenugreek seeds in a separate bowl for 4-5 hours.

In a small bowl wash and soak poha for 4-5 hours.

First in a mixer jar blend poha till smooth using 1/8 cup of water and transfer it to a big vessel.

In the same jar blend the rice ,urad dal and fenugreek seeds using 1/2 cup water(add water in between).

Transfer the batter to poha batter vessel, add in rice flour and mix everything well and close the lid and let it ferment for 8-9 hours ( whole night )

While preparing dose add 1 and 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon sugar, mix it well. If the batter is too thick add 1/4 cup water and mix well.

Heat the tawa (I use iron skillet), sprinkle water and wipe it using paper towel or onion, pour one laddle full of batter and make dosa.. make sure to decrease the flame once skillet is heated enough.

Cook dosa in low flame, add butter, flip it and cook for 30 seconds and again flip dose and add 1 tablespoon of butter and spread it on dose and cook until the bottom of the dose turns golden brown.

Use generous amount of butter while preparing this dose..
Make sure to cook this dose in low flame.

While making next dose, sprinkle water on skillet and clean it with paper towel and repeat the same process..

Serve hot with chutney!
