Mix both the ground mixtures, add salt, and mix well. Cover the bowl with a lid or cloth and let it ferment for 8-12 hours. Fermentation is crucial for sour flavor of dosa.

Preheat & grease

Heat your non-stick dosa pan. A well-seasoned pan works best for achieving a crispy texture. Lightly grease it with oil or ghee. Make sure not to use too much oil,

Pour & spread

Ladle a small amount of the dosa batter onto the center of the pan. Gently spread outward, creating an even layer. The thinner you spread the batter, the crispier the dosa will be.

Cook & fold

Cook on medium-high heat until it turns golden brown and crispy at edges. Fold dosa in half or roll it into a cylinder, and serve it with chutneys, sambar, or potato masala.
