Black Gram Dosa/Sada Dosa

Urad dal/uddina dosa is popular south Indian breakfast item. The batter can also be used for preparing idli, by adding a little water to the same batter dosas can be prepared. We prepare it once a week, crispy dosa with chutney, sambar or potato stir fry (bhaji) makes it more tasty. I am going to share the restaurant style, finger licking good, crispy golden brown dosa recipe.
