Recipe Notes

Notes:

  • Rice gives a crispy texture to the batter.
  • Please blend the chutney when all the ingredients have cooled down completely.

Tips:

  • Wiping the dosa tava with wet cloth. The reason for this step is, if the tava is too hot then the pesarattu will not stick to the tava, and your dosa will not be crispy.
