Oh so spongy and delicious.. These dosas simply melt in your mouth. I made them with a simple yet tasty tomato chutney for dinner and they were a super hit. There are so many variations in the measurements used but I came up with this measurement ratio of my own.

Here is the recipe..

Makes 8 dosas

Ingredients :
Idli Rice (Par-boiled rice) - 1 1/2 cups
Poha / Aval (Thick Flattened rice) - 1/2 cup
Buttermilk (Thick like milk consistency) - 4 cups preferably sour
Fenugreek seeds - 1/2 Teaspoon
Cooking soda - 1/4 Teaspoon
Salt to taste
Oil as required for drizzling

Method :
1. Wash the rice and poha and drain all the water.
2. Soak the rice and poha with fenugreek seeds in the buttermilk for 8-10 hours.
3. The poha soaks quite a lot of buttermilk.
4. Add the rice and poha with the fenugreek seeds in a mixer retaining the buttermilk separately.
5. Add buttermilk little by little and grind to a smooth batter. If all the butter milk is over then add some extra buttermilk but do not add any water to grind the batter.
6. The batter should be a just a little thin than normal dosa batter consistency.
7. Add cooking soda and salt and mix well. Cover and keep it aside for 2 hours.
8. Heat a tawa.
9. Mix the batter well and drop a ladle full on the tawa. It will spread on its own.
10. Sprinkle oil all over the dosa, cover and cook it for about 2 minutes till it is done.
11. You can flip it to the other side if desired.

Enjoy Sponge Dosas.
