Vendhaya dosa or fenugreek seed dosai is a very healthy dosa prepared with rice, urad dal and fenugreek seeds. It is soft, spongy and tastes very delicious. It needs less ingredients and is easy to make.
Wash and soak rice and urad dal together for 4-5 hours.
Soak 2 1/2 tbsp of fenugreek seeds overnight.
Grind everything together to a smooth paste adding little water from time to time. Batter should be similar to uthappam batter consistency. Add salt needed and mix well.
Leave it overnight to ferment. The next morning you can make soft, spongy and delicous fenugreek dosa.
Heat a tawa, grease it with a little oil. Mix the batter well and pour a ladle of batter in the center of the tawa and spread it in a circular motion. Do not spread too much. The dosa should be a little thick.
Drizzle a tsp of sesame seed oil around the dosa. Cook covered on medium heat.
You do not have to flip this dosa. If you want you can flip it over.
Once cooked (tips for beginners - touch the dosa with wet fingers and check, if the batter sticks to your finger, cook for a few more minutes) remove from tawa and serve hot.
Super soft, spongy and healthy fenugreek dosa is ready.
Serve hot with any chutney of your choice.
Kara chutney goes very well with this dosa
