3.Ferment it well like normal dosa batter and make the dosa with well fermented batter like any other dosa.

4.Serve it with your choice of accomplishment.

I served with coconut +jaggery mixture and Zucchini chutney.


1.This is the sweet version of dosa, if your family doesn't prefer sweet dosa like my family, you can skip jaggery while grinding, instead can use 1 or 2 green chillies along with 1/2 tsp cumin seeds like I did.

2. If you are making Sweet dosa, it can be best paired with ghee and Jaggery.

Also coconut, jaggery is one of the best combination.
