I am Beena, a housewife, who is interested in cooking, art and crafts …. I own

of my blogger friends like Meena, Julie, PT, Shabbu, Viji, Faseela, Priya
Satheesh, Divya, Swati …….who inspired me to do more and more. Thanks
Meena for giving me this space to introduce myself and the recipe to follow.

Make dosa batter by mixing #1 ingredients as shown above. Now combine the
#2 ingredients to the batter.

Heat oil in a tawa, pour some batter and rotate the tawa to get a round shape.
When dosa turns brown on the sides. Sprinkle some oil on the sides and centre
of the dosa. Don’t use the spatula much or else dosa will break. Serve dosa with
tangy beetroot chutney.
