I know we all live in a fast moving life where there is less time to spend in the kitchen. The best bet bring the cereals but if you plan your time such recipes are perfectly doable and kicks off your health too. This particular recipes is made usually in Malnad region of Karnataka but there are variations of it in other regions of Karnataka as well. The recipe requires soakingbof rice, Lentils and spices for about 3-4 hours. Then it is ground to a fine smooth batter but not fermented. Since the batter is not fermented the dosa might turn a little rough. So I use little bit of soda to help the batter loosen up and soften. This is optional but well worth a try. The batter can be pre made the pervious night and can be used the next day .
