This dosa’s are made of urad dal,rice,fenugreek seeds,sabudana(sago),poha(flattened rice) and curd.The proper fermentation of the batter for set dosa is very essential because if fermentation is not done proper they won’t yield porous,soft and spongy dosa.The fermentation of the batter depands on the climatic condition of that particular region.

The first time I ate this dosa with my husband on a moving dosa stall which was situated in the famous khau galli in our city.When I first saw it I thought it as mini uttapams.But when tasted,it really melted in my mouth.And yes it became my another favourite south indian dish.

Thereafter I always wanted to prepare it in my kitchen and I really succeeded in doing it in the very first attempt.The pores,sponginess and the softness came out the same as I had eaten it on that stall.And thereafter it became one of the most prepared breakfast or say the brunch item in my house.
