Prep

1

Strain the soaked lentils, keeping the water aside.

Place the lentils in a grinder along with the reserved water or fresh water.

Grind the urad dal, chana dal, and fenugreek seeds until you have a light and fluffy batter.

4

Transfer the batter to a bowl or pan using a spatula.

Cooking

Gently stir the batter, noticing tiny air pockets and increased volume.

2

Heat a cast iron or non-stick pan to medium-hot.

3

Grease with oil for cast iron, but not for non-stick.

4

Keep the flame low while spreading the batter in a circular shape.

5

Cook the dosa on medium heat, sprinkle oil on top and edges, and cover with a lid.

Cook until the base turns golden and crisp.
