Soft & Spongy Dosa With Urad Dal Flour#SundayFunday

I wanted to make dosa for breakfast so the previous day I washed the rice, kept it for soaking. Took out the box of urad dal, there was only 1/4 cup of lentils in it. Since I had already soaked the rice, I used urad dal flour which is always ground at home. Voila .... a new recipe came in to being. The dosa's were so soft, spongy and had a natural sweet taste. The color of the dosa were not white like when you grind lentils, it has a light brown color, see pics. Let's see how I made these dosa's!
3 Cups Sona Masuri Rice
1 Cup Urad Dal Flour
½ Cup Poha powder
½ Cup Idli Rawa
1 Teaspoon Fenugreek seeds
½ Teaspoon Heaped Sea Salt
A Pinch Of Baking Soda

Wash and soak the rice with methi seeds for two hours. After two hours drain the water and grind it to fine paste. Then in the same blender as you are grinding the rice little by little add the flour of the urad, poha and blend till it bubbles. Like wise grind all the flour and rice.
Pour this batter in a large vessel/pot add the salt and baking soda mix very well with you hand. Keep this to ferment overnight. This batter will not rise like the normal dosa batter. You will see large bubble and will be slightly risen. In the morning add the idli rawa and give it a very good mix. Keep this aside for minimum 2 hours. After 2 hours heat a non stick pan /dosa pan on medium low flame.
Brush a non stick with oil, pour a ladle full of batter into the center of the pan and spread it by rotating the pan. Do not use the spoon to spread the batter. Place a lid and keep the flame high for a minute. Then reduce the flame to low and let it cook till done and the bottom is light brown. Flip it and cook it for a minute only. Take it on to a serving plate.
