What is Dosa?

Dosa is a pancake typically made using rice and lentils (although very distinctive ingredients which are uncommon to south Indian food are also being used to make dosa such as oats dosa, bread dosa, etc). Generally, dosa is crisp and thin. It is stuffed with some mixture, however, this recipe deals with plain dosa.

Let’s talk about the Ingredients for Dosa

Dosa asks for
perfect batter: I prepare the common batter for idli and dosas. this way I am able to serve idli dosa both to my family. of course, dosa batter has a thinner consistency than that of idli and the same should be adjusted. I never felt the need to make a separate batter for dosa as I always get perfect dosa using this batter.

How to make Perfect Dosa

1. Consistency of dosa batter : Take dosa batter. add water as much required to get a pourable and spreadable consistency.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
