Set dosa has different definitions for different people. I was introduced to it in Bangalore and I instantly became a fan. A stack of 3 spongy dosas is served with sagu – a vegetable side dish. I absolutely adore this combination. Recently, one of my friends told me, the set dosa he knows is a stack of 3 different varieties of dosas. Anyway, I have seen so many different recipes for these spongy dosas. I loved this version which is very simple. This recipe is from some old Kannada recipe collection. I served it with a simple potato side dish.
1 cup rice
3/4 cup flattened rice (poha)
1 tea spn fenugreek(methi) seeds
1/4 cup yogurt
1/2 tea spn sugar
1/2 tea spn soda
Soak rice and fenugreek seeds in water for 4-5 hrs. Grind to a smooth batter.
Soak flattened rice(poha) in yogurt. Grind it and mix with rice batter. (I grind both together). Do not make the batter too thin. Leave over night for fermentation.
Add sugar and soda next day.
Make thick small dosas. Serve hot.
