Plain Dosa
Plain dosa or dosa is a very simple and tasty South Indian breakfast recipe. It is available in every corner of South India. There different varieties of dosas, like plain dosa, onion dosa, masala dosa, paper dosa, steam dosa and the list goes on. The basic ingredients in dosa making are rice and black gram. The dosa batter is prepared a day before making of it. So we need to plan ahead to make this kind of dosa. We can make instant dosas also that is totally different. 
Dosa making depends on batter and its fermentation. To get more crispier and colored dosa add poha or flattened rice. Adding fenugreek seeds also give little crispiness to dosa. Softness of dosa depends on fermentation, to get soft and lot of holes on dosa we need to ferment it for at least five to eight hours.  Holes on dosas gives a kind of nice look to them. We can store the batter in the refrigerator for two days.
