Dosa with Karam or erra karam dosa is a very famous tiffin in Nellore most loved by people who love spicy is how 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 Erra Karam
1. Onions 3 
2. Salt to taste
3. Red chillies 4 to 6(depends on how spicy you want)
4. Jeera 1 tsp
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. For the karam grind all the ingredients without using water..the moisture in onions is enough to make a paste.
5. Now spread this red chilly paste when the dosa is cooking and serve with ghee or any chutney or potato curry.
