Dosa, what can be said more about that being a common south indian breakfast which is thoroughly enjoyed right from infants to seniors. Dosa is a gluten free breakfast recipe in case you are allergic to wheat. Dosa can be compared to a pancake that's made more often with the combination of rice and white lentils. None can resist this dish with a spicy hot chutney, sambar or any other non vegetarian curry.

Soak the idly rice in water for 5 to 6 hours or leave it overnight. Similarly soak the urad dal,poha and fenugreek seeds in water for few hours. Grind the rice separately and the urad dal, poha with fenugreek seeds separately to a thick consistency batter(pancake batter consistency) using a blender or grinder. Set it aside in a warm place because you got to get it fermented, the batter tends to raise from 1 inch to 2 inches depending upon the weather and the place where ever you reside. Add some salt and water to get the desired consistency.
