Dosa, Aloo Saag & Phalli Ki Chutney

South-Indian Pancake, Potato Saag & Peanut Chutney
Ingredients for Dosa :
3 cups rice
1 cup maash dal (split black gram or urad dal)
Half a tsp methi seeds (fenugreek seeds)

Method :
Mix the rice, dal, fenugreek seeds and wash thoroughly. Soak in clean water for about 6-7 hours or overnight. Then grind it to a paste and add water so that you achieve a thin batter. Add salt according to your taste. This batter should be covered and kept for 12-24 hours for fermentation.
Now heat a non-stick pan on medium heat (pans used for making crepes/pancakes) , wipe it with a clean kitchen towel/cloth dipped in oil (this will normally prevent dosas from sticking). Pour a spoonful of the batter in the center of the pan, spread it evenly with the back of the spoon making a thin round shape. Drizzle a teaspoon of oil over it. Remove the dosa with the spatula when it looks crisp and golden brown.
