Tips To Make The Perfect Dosa

Batter- You will not have to battle with the soaked rice and lentil batter once you have got the consistency right though. Make sure that the ratio of rise to lentils is absolutely right and take care to grind it into a paste that needs to be a bit coarse instead of smooth and flowing.

Filling- The simple filling of aloo or potato reigns supreme to this day although you are free to play with it as per your taste. However, adding a pinch of the Mysore spice will give you that Mysore Dosa that will elevate one to another level. You might try to source the authentic ingredients while at Rotorua such as pluck a handful of curry leaves straight from the tree. Alas! It might prove to be a challenging task. So, safely down your tools and take your entourage out to the STEAM for sumptuous dinner and taste of the best dosas from the land of Rajnikant.

Technique- The task is certainly not as easy as it looks though. You have to ensure that the temperature of the frying pan is just right while the dosa batter hits it. Exercise your arms vigorously by moving it in a circular motion while spreading the batter too. Moreover, you would need to concentrate totally so that your hand-eye coordination is just right. Thankfully, you can always rely on STEAM if you want your dosa party to become the most talked about event in town.
