A perfectly crispy dosa can cheer us up instantly. Come to think about it, it is not very difficult to make dosa - all you need is a well-rested batter, a hot pan and a smattering of oil, and yet the results are not always in your favour. The broken edges, the charred bottom are disheartening but fret not. Here, we bring you a recipe that is not only foolproof but also loaded with nutrition. Dosa is a crepe-like Indian dish that is found in many avatars across the country. Dosa is typically paired with sambhar or chutney unless you are going for a particularly off-beat variation like schezwan dosa, chocolate dosa or cheese dosa which could be consumed as is.
