Paper Dosa/South Indian Thin Crepe Recipe

Dosas are one of the staple dish in our home. Crispy  and tasty dosa has carried its fame from Southern India to the world-famous restaurants all over the world. Dosa is made from fermented rice and urad dal/lentil batter.

My family loves paper dosa crisp and brown along with yummy coconut chutney and hot sambhar. Mostly people like to have them as breakfast or quick meal.

I mostly make idli/dosa batter at home, but now a days ready to use batter is available at nearby grocery stores/indian stores. You can check my homemade Idli/Dosa batter recipe right here . This version of batter makes a perfect crispy dosa, soft idles, uttapam and paniyarams. So without any more delay, lets start making hot and crispy dosas.
