Dosa the eternal breakfast delight could be prepared in any avatar depending on ones imagination and skill. Posted here is pudina dosa which I prepared using left over Idli batter. Idli batter will contain 1: 2 of urad dal and rice, however dosa batter normally has higher rice content. So to your left over idli batter add some rice flour to adjust the consistency add herbs, spices and prepare dosa as usual. It tastes great with simple curd and pickle.
