Ingredients to make Podi dosa

  • Dosa batter 1 cup
  • salt a pinch
  • Idli / dosa podi ( gun powder ) 3 tablespoons
  • Sesame oil 2 tablespoons
  • For the dosa batter :
  • Idli rice 3 cups
  • urad dal 1 cup

  • Ice water for grinding the batter .

How to make Podi dosa

  1. Batter preparation :
  2. Wash , clean and soak idli rice for 5 hours . Add fenugreek seeds to it while soaking .
  3. Wash , clean and soak urad dal for 2 hours . Last one hour , refrigerate .
  4. Soak white poha for 30 minutes .
  5. While grinding the batter , grind the rice first . Urad dal heats up the machine so finishing the rice first is always better .
  6. Then add urad dal and poha and grind using ice water . If the urad dal heats up , the Dosas wouldn’t turn soft and spongy .
  7. Mix the batter using your hands for better fermentation .
  8. Leave it overnight for fermentation .
  9. Heat a small inch pan . Pour one ladleful batter and shake the pan so that the batter spreads
  10. into a medium thickness dosa . Smear a teaspoon of sesame oil . The pan should be hot , before
  11. Pouring dosa . The lower side is cooked and upper side has no liquid. Now take a tablespoon of podi
  12. Idli chilli powder and sprinkle over the dosa . The quantity is as per your taste .
  13. Cover the pan with a lid for a minute so that the dosa becomes soft and cooks evenly .
  14. We will not flip the dosa in this podi dosa version . Serve hot .
  15. Softy podi dosas are ready to serve .

My Tip:

Use chill water while grinding the batter . Use a small inch pan for the perfect sized medium thickness dosas .
