Add very little water if necessary to get  a smooth and slightly grainy paste. Put this paste into a large mixing bowl and add enough water to make a batter. The consistency of the batter should be such that it thickly coats a spoon dipped in it. Then covered this bowl and keep aside for 6 -7 hours.

Now dosa batter is ready, add salt (and water if necessary) mix well.Heat dosa pan (flat nonstick pan) and clean it with cloth which is dipped into a cold and salty water. Then pour few drops oil on it and gently pour one big spoon of  batter onto the center of the pan and make a shape of dosa ( spread the batter in sweeping circular motions to form a pancake )till the ladle is empty. Pour few drops of oil  oil all over the surface of the dosa and also around its edges.When the upper surface begins to look cooked (it will no longer look soft or runny), flip the Dosa. Allow to cook for 1 minute after flipping. The Dosa is almost done. Fold it in half and allow to cook for 30 seconds more. Serve hot with samber and  coconut chutney.
