To make the dosa batter, soak rice, parboiled rice, urad dal, chana dal, tur dal and methi seeds in a large bowl with enough water for 4-5 hours.
Soak the poha or flattened rice in one third cup of water for at least half an hour before grinding the dosa batter.
Once done soaking, grind all these ingredients together.
To make potato masala, heat oil in a heavy bottomed vessel. Now, add mustard seeds and as they begin to splutter, add urad dal and allow the dal to turn red.
Add curry leaves, green chilies and ginger and mix for a few seconds. Add the sliced onions and saute for 5-6 minutes on low to medium flame.
Add the turmeric powder and mix. Add the boiled potato cubes and mix well.
Grind the roasted red chilies, roasted garlic, dalia (roasted gram dal), onion pieces, grated coconut, tamarind, sugar and salt to a fine paste. Remove to a bowl, add a tsp of oil and mix well.
To make the dosas, heat a non stick dosa pan on high for 20 secs.
Reduce flame to low and pour 2 ladles full of dosa batter in sweeping circular motion. Use the back of the ladle to spread it in thick concentric circles.
Drizzle oil along the edges of the dosa, drizzle melted butter or ghee all over the dosa. Cook the dosa on medium flame till the base begins to brown.
Place a ladle full of potato masala on one half side of the dosa, fold the dosa over the potato filling and remove to a serving plate. Prepare dosas with rest of the dosa batter.
