1 c. rice 7 Tbsp. water 1/4 c. urad dhal 1 tsp. salt 1/4 tsp. fenugreek 12 tsp. melted butter 1 Tbsp. cooked rice
The batter for Dosai has to be ready a day ahead during the summer and two days ahead during winter before preparation. Soak rice and urad dhal separately for 3 hours. Fenugreek can be soaked with urad dhal. In a blender, grind soaked rice with 1 tablespoon of cooked rice and 3 tablespoons of water. Urad dhal and fenugreek have be ground with 4 tablespoons of water. Mix ground dough together well adding salt. Keep the batter outside on top of the refrigerator for 24 hours to be fermented. Grease a fry pan or griddle with butter over medium heat. Pour 1/2 cup of batter over griddle and spread it into a thin round pastry. Pour 1 teaspoon of melted butter around it and another teaspoon of melted butter on top. When bubbles appear on top of the batter, about 2 minutes after being poured, turn it over. When both sides become golden brown, remove from griddle and serve hot. Makes 6 Dosai. Good to eat with coconut chutney and sambar.
