Mushti Polo / Fistful measure Dosa | Easy Breakfast Recipes

Mushti Polo/Fistful measure Dosa
I've mentioned this before,I'll say it again.I sleep well if there is dosa batter in the fridge.Somehow,it makes me tick off one main decision for the day.Having a box of grated coconut ready is an added advantage.Earlier,I used to grind the dosa batter in my mixie and still it yielded me enough batter for use throughout the week.Now I grind the batter in my 'most prized possession' in the kitchen,my Ultra grinder and needless to say,the batter lasts for a while and more.

Few days back,amma told me of this jhatpat dosa batter.This is no instant dosa,it does need soaking lentils and fermenting.In her words,jhatpat means,soaking the rice and urad dal together and grinding it together in a mixie.I found it fascinating because of the way ingredients are measured.Except for the rice,everything else is measured in mushti/fistful measures.
