Prep time




Resting Time




  • 1 cup Urad Dal (link above)

  • 2 cups Ponni Rice / Para-boiled Rice

  • 2 cups Rice


  • Soak all the three ingredients in water, in different bowls for about 4-8 hours. You can do this overnight, but I prefer to soak them first thing in the morning.
  • Once soaked, drain all the water.
    If you have a wet grinder you can use that, if not you can use a high speed blender / food processor.
  • For better consistency : Start by blending urad dal, by slowly adding about 1/4 cup of water to start with and keep adding more to get a good consistency.
    It should be very smooth and airy and feels like a cloud / smooth when you touch. You can transfer into a large mixing bowl.
  • Repeat the same process for both the rices, adding very little water if needed until a smooth yet slightly grainy paste has formed. Add this to the urad dal batter and mix it in.
  • You can also add all three at the same time and blend into a fine paste.
  • Fermenting Batter
  • Cover the dosa batter and keep it in a warm place overnight. (I place it in the oven with the light on)
  • The batter at this point will double in size and would be airy.
  • Making Dosa
  • Heat a non-stick frying pan/ dosa pan on a low to medium heat for 5 mins. Drizzle over a few drops of oil, then wipe the pan with kitchen paper.
  • Pour one ladle of the dosa batter in the middle of the pan. Using the bottom of the ladle, quickly move it in a circular motion, allowing the batter to spread outwards from the middle towards the edge of the pan, to form a round, thin pancake.
  • Drizzle a few drops of oil and cook until the underside looks completely golden and crisp. Use a flat spatula to loosen the edges, then roll over the potato stuffing and lift onto a plate.
