We south Indians mostly prefer idli /dosa for breakfast and to say the truth its the healthiest and tastiest food nothing can match it.We can make lots of variation in it by adding millets ,oats and other cereals.This is one way of making dosa where it is made very thick in iron tawa/skillet.
Soaking time: 2 hours
Fermenting time: 6 hours to over night
For making dosa: 2 to 3 mins
- Raw rice-3\4 th cup
- par boiled rice- 3\4 th cup
- urad dal-1\2 cup

1.Wash both rice and dal with methi seeds seperately.soak it for 2 hours.
