well during my childhood days, there were hardly a few dosa variations in the offer. but if you look at it now, there are thousands of dosa variations that mainly revolve around its basic ingredients. as matter of fact, i have posted so many dosa variations which includes crisp, soft and cotton-like texture. in similar lines, coconut dosa is one such variation. the best part of this recipe is the softness which is achieved by natural fermentation. traditionally the fermentation is achieved by the rice and urad dal combination but in this recipe, the methi seeds place a key role. hence you should never skip the methi seeds for this recipe.

furthermore, i would also like to add some additional tips suggestions and variations to the thengai dosa. firstly, the batter is the key for this recipe and has to be of the correct consistency. it has to be watery but not like neer dosa and also not like traditional dosa batter. basically, it has to flow once it is poured on top dosa pan. secondly, i have not added any eno salt or baking soda for this recipe and i have strictly followed the natural fermentation. but if you want to skip it you can add eno salt or baking soda. lastly, if live in a dry or cold place you may not get the natural fermentation of dosa batter. you may have to place it in a warm place or you can also place it in preheated oven.
