Dosas for us are my friend roopa's hand made , she makes amazing dosas in the world.She moved to Canada now ,so if I want dosa have to make my own , no one to pamper now .
I know the recipe but I don't have an Indian grinder, so the dosas never turned out as roopa's dosas ,batter was not very soft.Last week I was going through "Taste as you Cook" blog and saw dosa recipe ,puspha mentioned that we can use Idli rice instead of rice , that made me make dosas and they turned out delicious.Thanks to pushpa for sharing this recipe.

Urad dal - 1 cup
Idli rice - 5 cups
Poha - handful
Tuvar dal - 2tsp
For batter:
1.Soak urad dal & idli rice for 6-8 hours .
2.Grind them to a smooth paste and let it ferment overnight.
1.Mix the fermented batter ,add salt .Heat pan and spread the dosa batter evenly to a circle add oil/ghee .Cook it till its brown in color and flip it .

Hot dosas can be served with any pachadi/pickle or podi of your choice.

Note:Shhh don't tell anybody revealing the secret behind crispy dosas is adding poha(for soft dosas) & tuvar dal(for nice color and crispness).
While spreading the batter, if pan is very hot the dosa doesn't come nicely so before making dosa if you have electric stove make sure you take the pan off from the heat and spread the batter and then cook it.Life is easy for those who have gas ,you can just simmer the gas.
