Here it goes…

Ingredients : 

1. Idly Rice – 2 cups

(I’ve tried this with brown rice too …doesnt taste that great. Hence,  kindly stick to idly rice )

3. Sour butter milk – 4 cups

4. Cooking Soda – 1/4 tsp

5. Methi seeds / Fenugreek seeds – 1/2 tsp

Heat taw, and pour a paddle of batter and drizzle sufficient oil on the edges . Cover with a lid and cook on medium flame for a minute or till the dosa turns golden brown. Flip and cook for half a minute.
