Methi Dosa / Uluva Dosa (Fenugreek Dosa)

The first time I ate dosa with Methi seeds ground in batter was post first delivery. It did not taste a bit bitter as opposed to my imagination and put me back in action.
When I saw the same dosa in Dosa Corner of Aayis Recipes, couldn't resist but to make it!
My family including my kids enjoyed it. Thanks for posting Shilpa.

3 cups dosa rice
1/2 cup udad daal
1 tsp methi/fenugreek seeds
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp sugar

Soak the first three ingredients-rice,daal,methi for 5 hours and grind it with water to make dosa consistency batter. Add sugar and baking soda , ferment it overnight.
Make dosas the following day. Use vegetable oil or ghee, fry both the sides. Serve hot with chutney of your choice. At my place kids love dosa only with tomato ketchup hence the first serving is tomato ketchup and alongside is the white serving, which is readymade garlic dip.

A healthy dosa..enjoy!!

Purnima, I thought methi seeds were always added to idli/dosa batter, I add them every time.

LOL @ not adding toor dal to the Tori Ambat, but the recipe minus the cooked dal was delicious, no worries I still have green toor in my freezer so will add them the next time I cook it. Thanks Purnima.
