Sada Dosa/Plain Dosa

I was just checking my posts and noticed that I had only 3 dosa recipes one is PanPolo/Neer Dosa(avery old post), Udid Rulava Polo (which had got deleted due to some issues) and Palak PanPolo . So I thought why not post one which is the most simple among all.This picture was lying in my drafts from a long time.( I have a electric stove top so the dosa colour is not like as on stove top). Sada Dosa which means Simple Dosa.
To go with the Dosa I made Potato bhaji for which recipe is Here As I was making it for dosa I have avoided Jeera. And rest is the same.

Here is what we need:
3 cup rice ( dosa chawal/ Dose Akki/pole tandul)
1 cup split black gram lentil/ Split Urad Dal
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp Poha *
oil as required to grease the dosa

How to make plain/ sada dosa:

  • Soak rice, dal and methi for atleast 4 hours.
  • Soak 1 tbsp poha for atleast 5 minutes.
  • Then grind them to a fine thin(not runny) batter by adding little water.
  • Add salt to it and leave it covered for 10 hours or overnight for fermentation.
  • Now heat a non stick tawa and spread a ladle full of the batter on the whole of the pan in circular motions.
  • Grease all the corners with oil.
  • Serve them hot with  Potato Bhaji or hot sambhar and chutney.

  • Put little water on the tawa and wipe it with a clean cloth before making each dosa this helps the dosa to come out clean and crisp.
  • Adding Poha is totally optional. I add it as I use mixer grinder and not the stone grinder. If using stone grinder or tilting grinder you can skip this process.
Till Later then,

Happy Cooking,
