Homemade Dosa



A dosa is a type of savory pancake or crepe made from a fermented batter of rice and black lentils. It is a popular breakfast dish in South India, and is also served as a main course in many restaurants. Homemade dosas are easy to make and can be customized with different fillings and toppings. The batter is made by soaking rice and black lentils overnight, then grinding them into a paste. The paste is then fermented for several hours before it is ready to be cooked. To make a dosa, the batter is spread thinly on a hot griddle or skillet and cooked until golden brown. The dosa can be served with chutney and sambar as a breakfast or as a light meal.
