Serves – 2
Preparation time – 10 mins

Fermentation time – 8 to 10 hrs.
Cooking time – 2 to 3 mins for each dosa.
- Idli Rice/parboiled Rice – 1/2 cup
- Normal Rice (Sona masoori or any variety) – 1 Cup
- Poha (thick variety) (pressed rice) – 1/3 cup
- Urid Dal (whole or split variety skinless0 – 1/8 cup
- Fenugreek Seeds – 1/4 tsp
- Salt – to taste
- Water – 1 1/2 cups for gringding or as required.
- Aloo Bhaji – as required
- Onion chutney – as required
Wash, drain and then soak idli rice, normal rice, poha, fenugreek seeds, urid dal in fresh water. Make sure that you soak them in enough water because the rice and the dal expand while soaking. Soak all of them overninght or atleast 5 hrs.
Then before grinding the soaked ingredients, remove all the water from them and set aside. Use the same water for grinding the batter. This helps in aiding the fermentation process.
Make a smooth batter out of it. Use a blender or a wet grinder. Use enough water for making smooth batter that you saved before. Leave this batter for fermentation in a warm place for 8 to 10 hrs. (place it in a warm oven with its light kept ON).
Add water to the fermented batter to bring it to the right consistency if required. Add in salt and mix well.
Heat the dosa pan, check if it is ready or not by sprinkling some water onto the hot pan. you should be able to see some bubbles on the skillet which should disappear after few seconds.
Then add in a ladle full of batter and spread it with the laddle in a circular motion evenly. Cook for 1 min, drizzle oil, cook for 30 secs or till golden color on other side. Spread the Onion Chutney, potato filling, again add oil and cook for 1 min. Feel free to adjust the flame level. Remove the dosa from the pan and serve immediately with coconut chutney.
