Vendiya Dosai | Methi Dosa

There are different varieties of dosai or dosa and this one is quite unique because we don’t flip the dosa. We just cover and cook and boom it’s done. This is a crispy and soft dosa prepared with both idli rice, raw rice and fenugreek seeds. I love the hint of fenugreek in this dosai. This is one of my favorite dosa.

Idli-Dosa batter is one of the key dishes in my fridge. I usually stock them up regularly. Having that idli-dosa batter in my fridge gives me peace of mind. On busy days, either idli and milahai podi or dosai and milahai podi is my go-to-option. I alternate between regular dosa and this one. For the regular dosa and idli, I add only idli rice. But for this dosa, I add both raw rice and idli rice in the ratio of 1:1 and of course urad dal and more fenugreek seeds. For 2 cups of rice, I add about 3 tsps of fenugreek. Check out the regular idli-dosa batter proportion here.
