hi,i found this information in a site,hope it helps you my friend. Generally Dosa is prepared from a batter prepared from a ground mixture. This batter is then spread from the centre to the sides in a circular motion on a hot tava(flat circular frying pan). When the batter is prepared from powdered ingredients, it is poured in a circular motion in such a way that the sides are formed first and then the center is filled with batter. Usually Chutneys are served along with dosas though many other 'spreads' can be used while serving dosas. I selected one recipe for you that i liked,hope you enjoy too:) (Plain) Dosa 1 cup plain rice 1 cup parboiled rice 1/4 cup white urad dal 1/2 tsp. methi (fenugreek) seeds 1/2 tsp soda bi carbonate 1/2 cup curds 10-12 tsps. ghee or oil as preferred water for grinding Wash the rices and dal together. Add plenty of water and methi seeds. Allow to soak for 7-8 hours or overnight. Rewash the rice by draining the water 2-3 times. Grind to a paste. Rawa -like grains should be felt in the batter. Add soda bicarb and salt and mix well. Keep aside in a warm place for 8-10 hours. Beat the curds well. Add to the batter, add more water if required. The consistency of the batter should be thick enough to thickly coat on a spoon when dipped. Heat the iron griddle or non-stick tawa well. Pour a spoonful of batter in the centre, spread with the back of the spoon to a thin round. Pour a tsp. of ghee or oil over it. Remove with spatula when crisp. Serve hot with chutney and/ or sambar.

Dosa is a very tasty dish of south india. It is very easy to cook and look very nice. Ingerdiants: Rice: 1/2 kg Daal:100 gms Salt: to taste Water: as required Put the rice and daal in water for some time and grind it well with water to form a losse paste. Keep it for 5 to 6 hours. Now it will be having a little sour taste. Add salt as required and stirr well. Take a tava(preferably nonstick) and keep it under flame. When it is made hot enough add some dough to the vessel and make it round so that it forms a thin layer on the vessel. Remove it from the vessel and add the next.

I can't cook Dosa but have seen other people cooking it. It's very tasting. I think you take rice and using a mixer grinder you grind it and use water and make a paste out of it. Then you take the paste and flatten it out in a pan. Then after it dries up because of heat, dosa is created. That's all what i can say. For better results consult a South Indian or a professional cook.
