  • 1 dl rice
  • ½ dl yellow lentils
  • 1 dl white lentils
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon fenugreek seeds
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3-4 dl water


  • 6 potatoes
  • 2 onions
  • 2 tbsp yoghurt
  • 1 chilli
  • 1 tablespoon mustard seeds
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 tbsp garam masala
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 dl oil for frying


  • Soak lentils and rice in 3dl water overnight.
  • Next morning, grind the ingredients in a food processor until smooth.
  • Add more water if needed. The batter should be fairly runny.

Prepare the filling.

  • Sauté the onion slices for one minute with the spices in a generous amount of oil.
  • Add the diced potatoes and saute potatoes until cooked. Then add the yogurt and stir.

Making Dosa

  • Take large flat frying pan. Heat the pan to medium heat.
  • Put some oil in the pan. Pour one sixth of the batter into the pan. Swirl the pan so that the batter spreads smoothly. Add oil to the surface and smooth the surface very thinly with a baking spatula. Don't worry – the dosa will come off the pan when it's done.
  • When the dosa starts to curdle on top, and has become crispy on bottom, add the filling to the centre of the dosa. Using the spatula roll the masala dosa into a tube.
  • Enjoy crispy Masala dosa immediately.
