• Transfer the batter to a container, add salt as required, and cover the container with a lid.
• Place the batter in a warm place and let it ferment overnight.
• The batter will double in size the next day; add a little water to make it runny so that it can be easy to spread on the tawa.
• Heat a nonstick tawa and grease with a little oil.
• Now add a ladle full of batter on the tawa and spread evenly in circular motions moving outwards.
• Drizzle some oil on top of the dosa and cook until the dosa turns slightly brown.
• Once brown, flip it over, and cook for a few more seconds.
• Serve hot along with chutney or podi.
• You can refrigerate the batter to use later.
• You can use whole bajra too.
• You can use an iron tawa too.
• You can also add vegetables to the batter to make it more nutritious.
