soft sponge aval dosa recipepoha dosa recipe | soft sponge aval dosa recipe | avalakki dose recipe with step by step photo and video recipe. another variation of dosa recipe prepared with poha / aval / avalakki, rice, urad and curd or yogurt. typically the 3:1 proportion of rice and urad dal is followed for traditional dosa recipe. however in this recipe 4:1 ratio of rice and urad dal with extra poha and curd is added.

i have already shared the traditional karnataka set dosa or set dose recipe and also another variant of sponge or curd dosa. to be honest, poha dosa recipe is combination of both the recipe which yields same texture and softness, yet unique taste of poha and yogurt. i typically prepare this recipe even with leftover masala dosa batter too. i grind the poha and curd mixture to fine paste separately and mix it to dosa batter and leave it to ferment. also, the aval dosa batter is poured thick to dosa pan and not thin like traditional masala dosa.

poha dosa recipefurthermore, some important tips and suggestions for a perfect soft and sponge poha dosa recipe. firstly, i used fresh yogurt or curd for aval dosa recipe and not sour curd. sour curd will help to hasten the fermentation process and also it may turn dosa sour in taste. secondly, always pour dosa thick on dosa pan and never try to spread like masala dosa. poha makes dosa very soft and the dosa may not hold the shape. lastly, you can also prepare instant poha dosa recipe by adding baking soda and skip the entire fermentation process.

finally, i request you to check my other south indian dosa recipes collection with this poha dosa recipe post. this includes, rava dosa, ragi dosa, cheese dosa, mysore masala dosa, benne dosa, tuppa dosa, sandwich dosa and godi dosa recipe. in addition do visit my other recipes collection from my blog like,
