  • First see whether the batter is in pouring consistency, if not add little water and mix well.
  • Then take a laddle full of dosa batter and add it to the dosa tawa and keep spreading in circular motion outwards.
  • Drizzle oil and wait till it gets cooked and gets golden brown, then it will start pulling out at the corners.
  • Turn over to other side and let it cook for 2-3 seconds. Then fold it and serve hot with sambar and chutney.
  • Serve hot crispy Dosas!


  • Make the dosa batter thin in running consistency only then spreading will be easy and even.
  • Add ghee / oil as per your preference.
  • If the dosas stick to the pan then smear the pan with a half sliced onion before making the dosa.
