  • The dosa is very tasty and soft but should be taken hot. Temper it with mustard seeds, add the chopped coriander leaves, salt and curry leaves and mix well. (Some people prefer temering)

    Make sure to mix the batter well each time you make dosa.You will get crispy dosa only when the batter is thin
  • I used my mother in laws special red chillies for the bright color
