  1. Put all the ingredients except water in a big bowl.
  2. Now start adding small quantities of water to make a smooth batter, so that there should be no lumps in it.
  3. Add water till it comes to a dropping consistency or just like dosa batter. Now keep it aside.
  4. Now heat a non-stick- tawa or heavy bottom frying pan, then turn the heat on medium.
  5. Put little oil on tawa [1 tsp] & spread 1 serving spoonful of batter evenly on it.
  6. Cover it with lid just for a minute so that it should cook inside also.
  7. Then remove lid, put some more oil on the top & turn it upside down.
  8. Let it be brown & crispy from both sides.
  9. Repeat the same with rest of the batter.
  10. Serve hot with any chutney (coconut, savory tomato or green chutney) or sauce.
  11. It can be taken with toast also, and tastes great with any gravy dish.
