Masala dosa is a South Indian snack/tiffin made with fermented rice and dal (lentil) batter. If you want to eat dosas on a Sunday morning then you need to start the preparation process for the dosa batter on Saturday morning.!! yes, that is the time required, but worth it

Step 1: Ingredients - what you need

3 big potatos, peeled and cooked

½ cup of boiled green peas (fresh or frozen)(optional)

1 carrot boiled and cubed(optional)

1 inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled and minced

3 green chillis slit lengthwise

2 big onions finely sliced

¼ tsp turmeric pwd


2 tbsp oil

1/4 cup water

For tempering/tadka/taalimpu:

1 tsp mustard seeds

1 tsp cumin seeds(jeera)

1 tsp urad dal (black gram)

1 tsp chana dal(Bengal gram)

10 curry leaves

let me know, if anyone can add something more ;) and improve the taste!
 its really a tough job to make dosas and to make them paper thin without burning them.
at my house we do it differently but, masala dosa tastes good!
Yummm... dosas! One of my favorite south indian brunch foods. I'm also addicted to that coconut chutney. Thanks for a great instructable! For the SF Bay Area crowd - check out the dosas at Vik's Chaat Corner in Berkeley.
