notes:

  • firstly, use soaked urad dal water to blend batter, as they help to increase fermentation  process.
  • also blend the batter to smooth paste adding water as required.
  • additionally, store the batter in airtight container and can be used for a week.
  • furthermore, do not add salt for the entire batter, if you want to store batter for long time.
  • if you live in cold countries then cover and ferment in a warm place for 12 hours.
  • if you live in a warmer place, then ferment for 8 hour max.
  • i usually keep my batter in pre heated oven (switch off the oven though) to ferment batter well. if possible try to preheat oven every 3-4 hours.
  • finally, use idli dosa batter to prepare idlis and dosa.
