For the preparation of dosa

Soak parboiled rice, rice,
methi seeds, urad dal, tur dal and chana dal in water in a big bowl for around
6 to 7 hours. Soak poha in water (one-third cup) for half an hour before the
batter will be grinded.

Drain water from soaked
dal-rice mix and then grind the mixture with poha. Grind in batches and add a
little water each time so that the paste turns out to be smooth. Add sugar and
then mix well.

Ferment the batter a
minimum of 8 hours or overnight for fluffing. At preparation time, add salt to
the batter and then mix well.


For the preparation of potato masala:


Heat oil in a vessel. Once
it turns hot, add the mustard seeds and after they start spluttering add the
urad dal, allowing it to turn red in color. Add green chilies, ginger and curry
leaves while mixing for 5 to 10 seconds. Add sliced onions and turn the gas to
medium flame for 6 minutes.

Add turmeric powder and
then mix well. Then add cubes of boiled potatoes and mix well. Crush the cubes
lightly with the help of a ladle. Then sprinkle water (around ¼ cup). Place the
lid of the vessel and let it cook on low flame for around 5 minutes. Remove the
lid and add salt, coriander leaves and lemon juice mixing them well altogether.
Turn off the flame and move the masala to a bowl.

from the pan.

to get a fine paste. Remove the paste to a small bowl and add 1 tsp of oil
mixing well.

To prepare the dosa, pre heat on high flame a non stick pan
for around 20 seconds. Then reduce the flame and pour full 2 ladles of the dosa
batter. Use the ladle back in circular motion to spread the batter in thick

Note: Generally, masala dosa includes spongy thick interior
so it should be spread thick. You can also make thin circles if you prefer
thinner dosas.

Spread oil along the dosa edges and cook on medium flame
until the base turns brown. Exactly before you remove the dosa, spread the red
chutney all over. Then on the half side of dosa, place a full ladle of potato masala.
Fold it over the filling of potato and move the dosa to a serve plate.

Indulge in the true taste by adding the delicious coconut
chutney and rich sambhar.
