Set Dosa

Set Dosa
Set Dosa is a South Indian recipe of soft, rice and lentil pancakes.  These pancakes are generally served as a set of three small dosas with Coconut Chutney, Sambar and/or veg curry.

Idli Rice or Medium Grain Rice - 1 cup
Urad Dal/Split Black Gram - 1/4 cup
Fenugreek/Methi Seeds - 1 tsp
Thin Parched Rice/Beaten Rice/Pohe - 1/2 cup
Oil or Ghee/Clarified Butter
How to prepare Set Dosa:
  • Soak rice, urad dal and fenugreek seeds for 6 - 8 hours in water.  Wash soaked rice and dal well.
  • Wash parched rice with water.  Grind soaked rice, dal and parched rice to a slightly coarse paste.  The batter consistency is thick and not runny. Let the batter ferment overnight.  You can add 1/4 tsp of baking soda to the batter as well.
  • After fermentation the batter will rise almost to double.  Add salt to the batter and mix.  
  • Heat a pan and grease the pan with oil or ghee.  Pour a ladle full of batter to form a thick dosa.  Do not spread.  Flip the dosa when the batter starts drying. Roast both sides and serve hot Set Dosa with Coconut Chutney and Sambar.
