Sponge dosa as the name indicates is a soft dosa which can be made very easily for breakfast..and tastes yummm!

1. Buttermilk 4 cups
2. Rice 3 cups
3. Atakulu (poha/rice flakes) 1 cup
4. Methi/fenugreek seeds 1 spoon
5. Salt to taste
6. Soda

1. Wash rice and poha with water well and soak in buttermilk for 4 to 5 hours/overnight with a spoon of methi seeds.
2. Strain the buttermilk and grind the rice and poha till u get a dosa batter consistency ..use the buttermilk for grinding and not water .  Store the dosa batter in a large vessel as the batter has the tendency to ferment fast and comes up easily as it has butter milk in it.  After fermentation dosa batter can be used to make dosas or stored in fridge for  later use.
3. Rub the dosa tava with oil and cut onion.
4. When tava is ready pour a ladleful of dosa batter in which salt and soda have been added, for sponge dosa do not spread the batter and sprinkle oil and cover with lid and cook for few minutes.
5. Turn the other side and cook till you get the brown color..your is dosa is ready to be served.
6. If you want you can also spread the dosa batter and make a big dosa i.e or a regular dosa can be made with the same batter..if you think the batter is too thick add some buttermilk.

This goes to HRH rice flakes.
