Dosas/ Indian crepes are South Indian delicacy and a staple food in South India also a must-have breakfast for Deepavali. But I haven’t come across a single Indian who doesn’t like dosas. They are ridiculously delicious and can be enjoyed any time of the day – be it breakfast , lunch , dinner or mid day snack. Dosas are quite famous among the non – indians too . Restaurants worldwide have these beautiful Indian crepes on their menu and its very popular by everyone. They are made various ways and comes with fillings too and are considered healthy and appetizing. A very light snack and easy to digest. Dosas can be served along with chutney and sambar. Goes well with a cup of coffee too. Yummy and enjoy cooking!!
The famous South Indian Dosa / Thosai is made with fermented batter of rice and urad dal. A good dosa should be spongy and crisp on the outside, and white and soft on the inside. Serve with coconut chutney and also goes well with chicken or mutton curry. Yummy yum!

Hello! You state 2 rice but what is the quantity e actly in weight. Thank you.
There seams to be no reply from your question, 2 Rice would be 2 cups (1 cup= 250gms) thats why when adding the water you may need more or less to get the right consistency to make your batter, Vinnie
