Indian Cooking Tips: Here's A Quick Tip To Fix Sticky Dosa Tawa
All you need is regular flour or atta to fix a sticky dosa tawa. Just take a handful of atta and smear it on the dosa tawa. Then, with the help of your fingers, just evenly rub the flour on the surface of the tawa including the sides, corners and edges. Once it is done, dust off all the flour and clean the surface of the tawa using a kitchen towel. Once you start making the dosas, start by putting the tawa on low flame and eventually bring it to high flame. Follow this tip each time you plan to make dosas at home. It's quite a handy tip and won't take much of your time and effort.
Pair your dosas with chutneys of your choice and satisfy your South Indian food cravings like never before!
Note: While rubbing the flour on the surface of the tawa, make sure that the tawa is completely dry with absolutely no moisture on it as the flour will then stick on the tawa defeating the whole idea of getting a non-sticky tawa.
