Set Dosa or Sponge Dosa is a wonderful breakfast option that you can quickly make with little planning.
This version of Set Dosa only requires about 2 hours of soaking time after which you can ferment overnight. The texture of this dosa has spongy texture and so can be called as Sponge Dosa as well.
We all loved this so much that it has become part of our regular breakfast dish. We make Kothamalli Podi, Putnala Pappu Podi as the toppings and serve with chutneys. I have another version of Set Dosa that I had made many years ago.
Last month was a memorable one as we met our friends across globe. More on this next week. We are starting a new week with me making 3 different types of breads.

How to make Set Dosa at home
Making the Homemade Set Dosa Batter
Wash and soak all the ingredients for 2 hrs.
When you are ready to grind, change water and grind with just enough water to make a smooth batter.
Add salt and let it ferment overnight.
Making the Dosas
If you are making the dosas right away after fermentation, mix it well and set the tawa for making the dosa.
Once the tawa is hot enough, simmer, pour a ladleful of dosa batter and gently swirl it around or you can swirl the tawa slightly.
Cover with a lid and let it cook in low flame for few minutes.
This dosa should not be flipped to the other side. This is cooked on only side and served as two dosas per plate.
Use smaller ladle to pour as you will be serving as two pieces per plate
You can use different spice powders to sprinkle on top which makes it even better
