Set Dosa/ Sponge Dosa / Kal Dosa

This dosa is served as a set of 2 and thus got the name. :)

Raw rice - 1 cup
Boiled rice -1 cup
Whole urad dal - 6 tablespoons [little less than 1/2cup]
Curd - 1 tablespoon

Wash and soak the rices together for 6 hours.
Wash and soak the urad dal for 11/2hours separately.
Grind the rice with little water to a coarse paste.
Grind the dal with little water to a fine paste.
Mix the rice batter , urad dal batter with a tablespoon of curd and enough salt. Let it ferment for 8 to 10 hours.
Take the required amount of batter, add very little water to make it into pouring consistency.
Heat a griddle on medium heat, pour a big ladle of batter, make thick dosa. Sprinkle oil and cover it with a lid.
Take it out once dosa is cooked. Spongy and soft dosa is ready to serve..enjoy it with your choice of sambar / chutney / podi.

I always make Idli batter with the ratio 4:1(boiled rice : whole urad dal) with a teaspoon of methi seeds and a few castor seeds. It will be good enough for idli as well as dosa. This time I wanted to try "Kanchepuram Idli". Googled here and there and prepared the batter. ;)

I was running out of time for doing the rest of the process for kanchepuram idli in a morning rush, and ended up in this recipe. Glad that I did! :) Dosa's were perfect with sambar & podi! :)
