The two staple dishes of South-India are IDLI and DOSA. Since I have already posted IDLI, now it's time for DOSA. Crispy edges & soft centre with South-Indian side dishes... Wow! What a taste! After relinquishing this luring dish, your taste buds are going to get saturated.

Many Non-South Indians say that they aren't able to achieve the exact taste of Dosas. This difference mostly arises as a result of the batter consistency and composition. I have explained the recipe in detail so that my readers face no difficulty or confusion while trying this dish.

If you have any doubts, send a mail to

Idli is a traditional savory cake consumed generally as breakfast in South-Indian households. The most Preferred Condiments with Idlis are Molagai Podi/Dry Chutney Powder, Coconut Chutney, Coriander Chutney, Mint Chutney, Onion-Tomato Chutney, etc.

The natural taste of Idli is achieved only when the batter ferments naturally. So, please do not add Baking Soda to facilitate instant fermentation.

I have given a detailed procedure with important points in the brackets to avoid perplexion.
