COCONUT DOSA

Photobucket
Dosa a South Indian delicacy. A real name in Telugu for dosa is Attu. Normally amma use to make dosas by soaking rice and dal separately and grind rice in to a fine powder and urad dal in to a fine past and she mix both in a big vessel and leave a side for fermentation. It is a long process but they taste s just awesome. I got this coconut dosa idea from my mom s Appam recipe she makes appam with grinding rice and coconut to gather and leave it for over night she won't add any yeast or any thing and they came out crispy not like Kerala appams.So I gave this name to my moms appam recipe as coconut dosa. And here is the recipe………
