DosasDosas are an East Indian type of crepe, very
delicious, and sometimes used with a filling.
- 1/2 cup (120 ml) Urud
Dal (a type of lentil)
- 1 1/2 cups (360 ml) rice flour
Soak the dal for about three hours and then grind into a paste in a
blender. Add enough water to the flour to make a paste and mix with the ground
batter. The consistency should be similar to pancake batter. More water can be
added if it seems too thick. Add salt to taste and let the mixture stand
overnight to ferment.
To make the dosas, heat a generous amount of vegetable
or olive oil to medium high in a pan or on a griddle. Pour some of the batter
and quickly spread it out, using a spatula, to make a very thin crepe. It will
cook in about two minutes. You may have to flip it to finish the cooking.
