Dosa, are served in Indian restaurants around the globe and are much loved by all ages. I grew up eating dosa, my mom used to make dosa quite often. The batter consists of rice and lentils. Soak rice and lentils overnight and next day grind it into a smooth consistency batter. Allow batter to ferment for few hours or it doubles in volume. And there we have a perfect, crisp, appetizing dosa, which I could literally eat any time of the day.
