Expert Tips

  • If the batter is not runny then you cannot drizzle. But if you want to spread dosa then you can make a slightly thick dosa batter and spread it like our regular dosa.
  • Also tawa should be hot enough.
  • Adjust tawa temperature by splashing water on the tawa.
  • I would recommend using iron tawa to get a crispy dosa.
  • It is really not needed to flip over and cook as its thin it gets cooked faster. But if you like more crispy dosa then flip over and cook.

Serving & Storage Suggestion

Serve hot Toor Dosa Dosa with chutney or thokku. I served it with onion thokku.

For later use, store the batter in refrigerator & it keeps good till next day. I usually make the batter just prior to making of the dosa but if there is any leftover you can keep the remaining batter for next day use (keeping it refrigerated).
