Though being a southie, dosas and idlis are not a reglar feature at my place. Thats because of my laziness probably, I never bother to make the batter.But last weekend ,we decided to make dosas. So my hubby got the batter ready. I should tell the truth. He did everything while I just relaxed. We had it for our sunday lunch or brunch..whatever you call it!!! It was very delicious. This is the recipe.
For dosa batter
Raw rice- 2 cups
Boiled rice- 1 cup
Whole udid dal- 1 cup
