notes:

  • firstly, fermentation process takes around 8 hours.
  • furthermore, if you live in cold climate then preheat the oven and place the batter in it. this helps to keep warm and ferment the batter well. (just pre-heat and switch off the oven)
  • additionally, add in salt to required batter only. the remaining batter you can store in a airtight container and refrigerate.
  • finally, adjust the consistency of the batter while making dosa.

  1. Jus a clarification. Why is it important to add salt only to the portion of batter that we would be using and not to the whole before the fermentation process. My mom had always added salt once the batter is prepared and allows it to ferment.

    • Hey Sowmiya,

      Glad that you asked this question. There are 2 main reasons for it.

      1) Adding salt while grinding/ or after it will stop the fermentation and kills yeast. This is not salt feature but the iodine content within the salt stops it. Perhaps your mom was using the raw salt or sea salt which does not contain any iodine.
      2) also typically the dosa batter is prepared in bulk and store in fridge for minimum of 3-4 morning breakfast. If you add salt and preserve in fridge the batter would turn watery and also some time sticky. this will not deliver the desired end results with dosa.

      Perhaps there could be more, but I am aware of these 2 reasons and I always scoop the required batter and than add salt.
