Plain Dosa

Plain Dosa

Dosa is a very common and regularly prepared breakfast recipe in South India. There are many varieties of dosa. The base is the same but different toppings and stuffing brings different flavor & texture. The taste  of the dosa is completely depends on the fermentation of the batter. Today I am sharing plain dosa recipe with instructions and along with photos.
