Masala dosa happens to be favorite at home, but when i decided to post it in the blog my hubby was teasing me about what is new in it...but when i posted the picture of masala dosa in a cooking a tremendous response asking for the recipe so here it is:
For Dosa Batter
1. Rice 3cups
2. Parboiled rice 1 cup
3.Urad Dal 1 cup
4. Fenugreek Seeds- 1/4 tsp
5.Soda 1/4 tsp
6.Salt to taste

For Masala Curry
1.Potatoes 250 mg
2. Onions 2
3. Green chillies 3
4. Ginger 1/4 inch cut into small pieces
5. Oil 3-4 tsps
6. Mustard seeds, urad dal, jeera-few seeds for tempering
7.Turmeric powder-1tsp
8. Salt to taste

1.For the dosa batter soak rice, parboiled rice, urad dal and fenugreek seeds in water for 5 to 6 hours.  Later grind together for dosa consistency and let it ferment overnight.
2. To make perfect dosa..the dosa tava should be rubbed with oil with a cut onion, the first one or two dosas may not turn out good (use oil liberally for first dosas in order to avoid sticking) but later on the dosas will come out very crispy and we can use less oil.
3.Mix water to dosa batter and add salt, soda and make dosa batter consistency.  Take a ladle full of batter and make dosa..sprinkling oil all around the it can come out easily.  As methi seeds are added in batter it gives a good brown color..if well need to turn other side.
4. Spread the potato curry in the center of dosa and take it out.
5. For potato curry..Boil potatoes and mash them ..not too soft...few pieces here and there.
6. In a pan take oil and add mustard seeds, jeera, urad dal, curry leaves and fry.  Add cut onions, green chillies, and ginger pieces, curry leaves, and fry well.
7. Now add 1 cup of water and let boil for 2 minutes...add the mashed potatoes, turmeric powder,  salt and mix well.
8. Cook for 8 to 10 minutes until u get ur masala to stuff in dosa.
