Sponge Dosa

I tasted this Dosa first time in Bangalore when I went to my Mom's house.  My brother's wife made this dosa and it was just fantastic. When I asked the recipe, she gave a very simple recipe. I tried that and came out  well and everybody liked it...

  • Pre time: 10 mins
  • Cooking time: 15 to 20 mins
  • Serves: 3

Recipe for Sponge Dosa:

  • Raw rice, Poha (Aval) and Urad dal in the ratio 1 cup: 1/2 cup : 1/4  cup respectively.
  • Fenugreek 1 tea spoon
  • Except Poha soak all other items together for 3 hours after rinsing well.
  • After 3 hours, wash Poha and drain the water. 
  • Add  rest of the soaked items with Poha and grind to smooth batter in a mixer grinder adding water. 
  • Add needed salt. Let the batter ferment for 8 hours or overnight.
  • Grease the Dosa Tawa with oil. Spread the batter on it and pour a tea spoon of oil around it. 
  • Close it with a lid and cook it for a minute in medium flame. 
  • Now take out the dosa from the tawa. 
  • Like regular dosa, it need not be cooked on both sides. 
  • Remember to keep the flame in medium. 
  • The cooked part will be golden crispy and the other side fill be spongy white.
