furthermore, some tips and tricks to have a crisp masala dosa recipe. firstly, do not forget to add fenugreek seeds while grounding. fenugreek seeds add flavor and rich colour to dosa. secondly, in addition to fenugreek seeds add thin soaked poha or flattened rice while grounding. poha helps to make dosa soft and also with the fermentation process. lastly, cast iron tawa is always recommended for perfect masala dosa recipe. while, i am not denying that you cannot prepare masala dosa in non stick pan. but certainly, you would not get the same result as cast iron tawa.

  4. Mere dosa na brown nahi hote wo white hi rahte he
    brown or crispy ke liye ka karu me tave pe oil bhi lagti hu fir bhi nahi hota

    • app konsa tawa use karte ho? non stick tawa? non stick tawa mai mushkil hai. cast iron tawa use kare for better results.

    • Minal, even non stick can get you brown dosa. For the above quantity of ingredients just add 2tbsp of chana dal . Soak and grind same method as mentioned. While frying, keep medium heat while spreading the batter and keep high heat after spreading, it will make dosa brown.
