Podi Dosa

My kids love dosa, I try different kind of topping or filling on dosa. My kids love to have cheese or chocolate the most. Not only on dosa, cheese and chocolate flavors taste good on the original crepes ( wheat flour, sugar and egg batter) too. 

For final day of week 2 under the theme " Crepes for all", my dish for the day is Podi Dosa.   South Indians make a variety of podi to go with idly and dosa. Not only idly podi, you can also use coriander podi, curry leaf podi, coconut podi etc...Here goes the recipe........


Dosa batter 1 cup
Idly podi 1/4 cup
Finely chopped onions 1/2 cup
Finely chopped  coriander leaves

 For dosa Batter:

Udad dal 1 cup
Raw rice 2 1/2 cups
Chana dal 1/2 cup
Pressed rice 1/2 cup
Fenugreek seeds 10


Wash and soak all the ingredients under Dosa batter for 8 hrs or over night.
Wash again and grind to smooth paste.
Let ferment for 8 to 10 hours depending on the season.
Summers take less time to ferment.

Heat non stick pan and add a big scoop of dosa batter and spread around to make a round shape.
Sprinkle some idly podi and onions all over the dosa.
Add some oil and let cook till dosa leaves edges.
Now sprinkle some finely chopped coriander leaves.
Fold and transfer to serving plate.
Serve hot with any chutney and sambar.
