It is good to see a recipe with the photo. You made good content out of it 👍🏻💕

Looks very nice, you can make dosa with the same mixture, some also add poha (which is flattened rice), this makes for a crisper dosa with a unique texture, yum.

I will try adding poha next time! South India is the land of crisp dosa!
