  1. 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.

  2. Drizzle a tsp of sesame seed oil around the dosa. Cook covered on medium heat.

  4. 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.

  5. Super soft, spongy and healthy fenugreek dosa is ready.

  6. Serve hot with any chutney of your choice.
