Set Dosa / ಸೆಟ್ ದೋಸೆ

ಕನ್ನಡದಲ್ಲಿ ಓದಲು ಇಲ್ಲಿ ಕ್ಲಿಕ್ ಮಾಡಿ.

Set dosa is my all time favorite. Whenever some guests are coming to our home, I will be in a confusion about the food menu. Most of the times, I will prepare Set dosa for the breakfast. Its for the simple reason that, set dosa will come out nicely all the time. Totally, there be Zero risk if I opt for this dosa!
For set dosa to come out well, batter need to be kept in a warm place for fermentation. During winter time, fermentation will be bit difficult. What I do during such times is, I will cover the vessel with batter with one more slightly bigger vessel. This will help to maintain the warmth to some extent. If you have a microwave oven, you can heat it little-bit and keep the batter inside the oven for fermentation.
 

Preparation time: 30 minutes
Fermentation time: 7 - 8 hours
Soaking time: 5 - 6 hours
Servings: 3 - 4

Ingredients:
Rice - 3 cups
Urad dal - 1 cup
Fenugreek seeds - 1 tbsp
Flattened rice (Poha) or cooked rice - little less than 1/4th cup
Salt to taste
Sugar - 1 tbsp
Oil

Procedure:
Soak rice, urad dal and fenugreek seeds in water for 5 - 6 hours.
Grind the soaked ingredients along with flattened rice / cooked rice and prepare the dosa batter. You can use some water while grinding. 
Keep the batter in a warm place for 7 - 8 hours for fermentation.
Add salt and sugar to the batter and mix well.
Heat the dosa pan and apply little oil. Take a ladle full of batter and pour it on the pan. Spread it little-bit and prepare a thick dosa.
Add few drops of oil or ghee while cooking the dosa. 
Cook the dosa on both the sides and serve hot with Chutney.


Tips:
  • If you won't have sufficient time to soak the ingredients, you can soak them in hot water for around 3 hours.
