Step 2: How to Make Dosa Batter:

  1. First wash and soak rice and split black grams overnight and in morning grind it together with very less water.

Cook for another 8-10 mins.

Switch off the gas and remove it from heat and place it in a bowl.

Keep it aside.

Step 4: How to Make Sambhar:

First pressure cook the split red grams with tomatoes and some water, place the bottle gourd as well in pressure cooker in another plate.

Once it's at room temperature, open the pressure cooker, add all dry masala ingredients and blend the dal with blender.

Cook out on medium flame for 5 mins.

Now do tempering using all the ingredients listed in 'For Tempering' and pour it on sambhar.

On half of the dosa, place the masala we prepared in Step 3, and add butter or purified butter if you like and using turned turn the other half of dosa.

Serve as it is or cut into pieces if you like, with hot sambhar and chutney we prepared (in Steps: 4 & 5)
