This benne dosa is served with potato palya a simple aloo/ potato subzi and coconut chutney and that’s what you see in my plate as well.

Ingredients
  1. 1. Idli rice – 1 cup
  2. 2. Whole urad dal – ½ cup (white)
  3. 3. Pori/ Murmura – 1 cup
  4. 4. Water – to grind batter
  5. 5. Butter – as need to make dosa
Note
  1. * 1 cup = 235 ml
Instructions
  1. In a bowl add Idli rice and urad dal. . Wash 3 to 4 times until you see clear water. Soak it in enough water for 5 to 6 hours.
  2. After 6 hours, soak pori/ murmura in a bowl of water. Let it soak for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes drain the water and keep the soaked murmura/ pori aside.
  3. In a wet grinder/ blander add soaked idli rice and urad dal. Grind the mixture into a thick and fluffy batter adding water in regular intervals when needed. To the ground add soaked pori/ murmura and grind it into smooth batter. The batter should be smooth and thick. I used around ¾ cup of water to grind.
  4. When done grinding transfer the mixture to a bowl, add required amount of salt and mix well. Allow the batter to ferment for 8 to 10 hours.
  5. In the morning the batter would have fermented well with visible air bubbles. Mix it well and make sure the batter is thick enough to make dosa. This dosa requires thick batter like uttapam.
  6. Now heat a dosa pan, to it pour a ladle of batter and make a small swirl to make thick dosa/ like pancake. Smear enough batter as it butter dosa. Allow the dosa cook in medium flame. When the dosa looks cooked fold it and remove it from the pan. There is no need to flip the dosa but if you like it you can flip it there is nothing wrong. Repeat the process for the remaining batter. Serve the dosa hot with potato playa and coconut chutney.
