oil for making the dosa
Wash rice, rice flakes and dal with water. Drain and soak together in buttermilk for 4-5 hours.
After the soaking time, drain and reserve the soaking liquid. Grind the contents to a smooth batter, adding the reserved liquid.
If you have soaked for a longer time, you will not have enough liquid, that case use water to grind the batter. It should be of dosa batter consistency, thick, pour-able. Do not dilute by adding more water.
To this batter, add baking soda and set aside to ferment for 3-4 hours. After the said time, you can make the dosa or refrigerate it for later use.
To make the dosa
Heat a tava, pour a ladle of batter in the center, using the back of the ladle, spread the batter a little to form a circle. Do not spread too thin,
Dot the edges with gingely oil, cover and cook for a minute or two. Normally the dosa is cooked only one side. But then i flipped and cooked the other side for 2 seconds.
