Both a dosa and an eggless omelet. Does the batter get thick after sitting for an hour?

Saju said...

Suganya, yes the batter does get thick. And if neccessary you need to add more water.

Wow great looking chillas. They are very similar to the pudlas, Gujarati's make.

Nawaaz said...

Any suggestions on how to get them nice and thin? I used your recipe and they were delicious, but a bit thick - when I tried adding water to make the batter runny, they became very sticky and hard to flip. Any suggestions?

Saju said...

were your onions etc finely chopped? It am not sure otherwise.
