Wash the rice and soak in 3-4 cups of water for 10-12 hours.
Drain the water and add the rice in a grinder along with coconut and ¼ cup of water.
Grind to make a very smooth batter.
Take the batter in a bowl and salt to it and mix well.
Now add 1.5-2 cups of water to the batter to make it really thin.
The consistency of the batter should be like milk.
If while making the dosas, they are not coming lacy and with pores, that means your batter is thick and add some more water to it.
Heat a non stick pan.
Brush it with very little oil.
Pour the batter from outside towards inside.
Pour more batter in the gaps.
Cover the pan with a lid and let the dosa cook.
Drizzle ½ teaspoon ghee on top if you wish to. And then remove the dosa from the pan.
This dosa is white in color and is soft not crispy.
Let the dosa cool down a bit and then fold the dosa into half and then into a triangle.
Serve hot with any chutney or curry.
Grind the soaked rice and coconut with only ¼ cup of water. It will make sure the rice is nicely ground to a fine paste. Add more water later.Make sure the batter is very thin, just like butter milk otherwise the dosa will not turn out proper.The griddle should be very hot when you pour the batter on it. Splash some water on it to check it its nicely heated. If the water dances and evaporates immediately, the griddle is hot enough to pout the batter.You can also use dry desiccated coconut in place of fresh coconut if it's not available.Cover and cook the dosa on high heat.You can choose to not add coconut in the batter if you wish too.
