           I simply followed the recipe from a cookbook. Its a long time wish for me to try this and today I tried and was satisfied with the results. There are so many sponge dosa recipes out there in the blog world,and here is another simple version!  It was too spongy and was good enough even when cooled down!

Next time I will try adding Vendayam/fenugreek seeds as in other blogs!! Angel,though it was very very spongy,I will try that for flavor!

INGREDIENTS:

Idly rice(parboiled rice) 2 cups
Rice flakes/aval/poha 1/4 cup
Sour butter milk 3 – 4 cups
Cooking soda 1/4 tsp
Oil & salt As needed

Sponge stack!

Method:

  1. Soak washed rice and aval  together in buttermilk overnight.
  2. Morning,drain the excess buttermilk if any and grind to a smooth batter like our idly dosa batter(bit watery than that)
  3. Mix salt(I added 2 tsp) and cooking soda and mix well.
  4. Heat the tawa (I used a nonstick one) and pour a ladle full of batter and drizzle oil and don’t spread the batter,cook covered in medium flame for a minute.

  5. Now super soft spongy dosa is ready to enjoy!
Porous texture!
Serve with a spicy chutney,we had with coconut chutney ground with red chillies and a garlic! Was really yummy and we all 3 ate well Happy
With chutney!
Notes:
  • No holes formed in the dosa? Check the consistency of the batter,too thick batter or even too thin batter wont give you porous dosa. Try adding more cooking soda and mix well and try again.

My next post will be My event round up!!

  24. Nags,
    St dosa I think they cook both sides,this one we are cooking only one side and cover and cook:)
    Varsha,
    I am not sure to replace those 2 with any,may be you can try grinding with cooked rice(in place of rice flakes) and keep it for fermenting and make next day the dosas...this is my own guess,but not sure how effective the result would be :P

  42. Can i soak the rice in morning, grind it in evening and make dosa immediately for dinner? Will it work?

    ReplyDelete
  43. Raksh,
    enna solla? I have no grinder and not a good mixie too. But when I checked this out i was like... some miracle should happen to my mixie so that i can try this. Yes, the miracle did happen! I tried this recipe (mixie ground the rice so soft) with nice spicy tomato-chilly chutney. It came out so so well and I bragged about it to my amma :) Thanks so much girl.

    More writing... though I know to cook almost any south Indian recipe, at times I get some doubt but i could not call my mom since it'll be mid-night when we prepare our lunch here. So then I immediately get my system and type rakskitchen.com :) If there is any different item from my kitchen my husband now asks...'enna ma..rakskitchen-a?' :D :D

  46. hi raks, i wanted to try this recipe as this looks so nice and very good for babay's too. I have some question is no need of fermenting the batter can we do immediately after grinding? do you know how to make butter milk at home as we will be having yogurt all the time but not buttermilk, plsss

    ReplyDelete

  48. Just cooked up the sponge dosas and they were light and delicious. I had to use soy "yogurt" because I am allergic to milk. Also put 1/4 tsp curry podi and pepper powder for extra flavor and used fenugreek in the soak. Thanks for a great recipe.

  49. Just made this soft and fluffy dosa. I had to use soy yogurt as I am allergic to milk but the taste was tart and good. I also added 1/4 tsp curry leaf podi and pepper powder. So good!

  50. Hi Rak

    I soaked the rice and aval with buttermilk (the buttermilk isin't sour at all) from at 5pm this eve. Can I grind it at night say 11 pm. Keep the batter outside overnight to ferment a bit and make the dosas in the morn say 7pm? I don't want to grind in the morning as I run short of time. Thanks in advance. Really appreciate if your answer came quick

    ReplyDelete
  51. Cynthiya, yes you can try that. You can make dosa at 7 am. Since you are fermenting, if you give more time for fermenting, you need not even add buttermilk.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Made them in the morning today!! Came out fabulous!! I have not clicked the pic unfortunately...but the recipe goes in the diary & a pic will follow soon! Served with Peanut Shallot Chutney....yumm!! Thanks!

  56. This is one really nice yummy dosa that everyone must try. It tastes simply good and not much of hard work too :)

    ReplyDelete
  57. Soda is for making it porous and easy cooking. You can omit and grind and keep overnight for natural porous dosas!

    ReplyDelete
  58. it turned out to be sour! yet the butter milk, i used, was not. any idea why?

    1. Because of hot climate? Try soaking for less hours.
