  • Mix it all well and add yoghurt.
  • Using water little at a time make a thick batter .
  • Add extra water about 3 cups to thin the batter.
  • The consistency of the batter must be thin so get a crispy dosa.
  • Instead of using yoghurt and water to make the batter , buttermilk can be used. If using buttermilk to mix the batter then skip yoghurt .
  • The batter can be made using only water and without yoghurt.
  • Rest the batter for 30 mins.
  • To make the dosas, heat a griddle on high .
  • The griddle should be hot , only the a lacy dosa is formed.
  • Grease the griddle with little oil.
  • Mix the batter right from the bottom. The batter tends to settle at the bottom and hence needs to be given a through mix.
  • Take a ladder full of the batter and pour over the griddle . Because of the high heat a lacy dosa is formed.
  • Apply a little oil and cook on medium heat until crisp. It takes a couple of minutes for the dosa to become crispy.
  • Once done, gently release from all sides and fold into half.
  • Put it onto a plate and serve immediately with coconut chutney !

Note – You can add finely chopped onions and coriander leaves to the batter.
