Methi Dosa(Menthe dosa)

This is a traditional recipe. I got it from my cousin Usha. These days we share a lot of recipes while chatting. She has got tremendous interest in cooking.I am getting a feel that here in US there are lot of people like me who love cooking. When I was in Bangalore, my colleagues hardly used to get any time for cooking. It may be because there the working hours(I mean working and traveling hours!!) were usually morning 8 to evening 8 and sometimes people used to work even after that.

So when last time Usha said she had invited a family for lunch and she prepared around 8-10 dishes, I was very surprised. Even I love doing that, but hardly got any such opportunities. In Bangalore I was too busy and used to feel exhausted due to heavy work and here, there is nobody whom we can invite. We know very few people here.

Here is the delicious recipe for methi dosa.

3 cups rice
1/2 cup urad dal
1/2 tea spn fenugreek seeds
1/2 tea spn baking soda
1 tea spn sugar

Soak rice, urad dal and fenugreek seeds for 3 – 4 hours. Grind it together to make the batter. Add sugar, soda towards the end of the day & keep overnight for fermentation.
Make dosas in the morning applying oil/ghee.
Serve hot with ginger chutney.

Serves : 5
Preparation time : 15min
