This is another interesting Dosa which we make often at our home, its so crispy and delicious. Adding onion, channa dhal and coriander to this makes more tasty and crunchy in every bite. This is one of our favorite dosa and we serve with spicy dal(kaaram pappu) ( grandma's recipe).  you can serve with coconut chutney too The dosa by its own has wonderful flavor. Check out spicy dal which is unique and a great side dish for this dosa.

Ingredients :

Idli Rice (Boiled rice) - 1 cup
Raw rice (pacharisi) - 1 cup
Fenugreek seeds - 1 tsp
Urad dal - 1/4 cup
Curd - 1/2 cup
Green chilli - 2
Red chilli -2
Curry leaves few
Cummin seeds - 2 tsp
Asafoetida - 1 tsp

Addition to dosa :

Onion - 1 chopped very finely
Channa dal - 1/4 cup soaked in water
Coriander leaves - 1/4 bunch chopped finely
Mustard for seasoning
curry leaves few chopped

Method :
1. Soak rice and dal for few hours and grind with all other ingredients and salt to fine batter.
2. Ferment it overnight. The next day.
3. Adjust the batter consistency  like rava dosa.
4. Add the onion, soaked channa dal, coriander leaves, Season with mustard and curry leaves. Mix well.
5. Heat the skillet and pour a ladle full of batter starting from the edges in circular way.
6. Since the batter is loose it automatically fills the middle part , unfilled part just fill it with ladle.
7. Add 1 tsp oil, when it turns slight brown in the edges flip it over and make crisp on other side too.
8. Serve it with dal or chutney.. Serve hot .

Note :

1. While making each dosa mix batter well becos the onion and channa daal will settle at the bottom.
