How to make Masala Dosa
- Step 1
Masala Dosa is one of the most popular South Indian delicacies. Here’s how you can prepare this delicious recipe at home! To prepare the batter for Masala Dosa, wash and soak the rice (with fenugreek added into it) and urad dal in separate containers for approximately 6-8 hours. Once the rice and urad dal are soaked well, grind them separately in a mixer, till the mixture gets a smooth consistency. Take the batter of both the ingredients in a bigger container and add salt to it. Allow it to ferment overnight.

For preparing the filling of the dosa, heat oil in a thick-bottomed pan and let the mustard seeds splutter. Then, add sliced onions, curry leaves, green chilies and saute them till the onions turn pink. Then, add a pinch of salt and turmeric powder and mix them well. Now, take the cubed potatoes and add them to the sauteed onions and mix them together. Pour some water into the mixture and allow the potatoes to simmer the mixture for around 4 minutes. When the mixture is in semi-thick state, turn off the gas knob.

Now take a dosa tawa and heat it on low-medium flame. Smear a little oil on it to prepare the dosa. When the tawa is hot, pour and spread the batter of urad dal and rice evenly into a circular motion.
