Paper Roast


Dosai batter - 1 cup (if you have only idly batter, make it thin like dosai batter).
Oil - 2 tsp (each)


1. Heat dosai pan, add a ladle of batter and spread it thin using ladle.
2. Add oil around dosai, let it for 30 secs.
3. Then spread one tsp of oil in a flat ladle/dosai ladle(dosai karandi) and try to flat the bulged portion of dosai. (see pic)
-> Do it carefully in such way that it do not tear (see pic for a hole)
-> Add more oil for crispiness.
4. Then flip the dosai to the other side. Let it for 15 secs. Roll it in shape of cone or as you like.

Normal Dosai: Compare both the pictures, you'll find the difference.

Notes and Secrets:

-> Every one love paper roast. But not many of them know that we can bring a restaurant in our own kitchen. As soon as we enter a south Indian restaurant, more than 80% of us order dosai(different types).
-> You can also use ghee instead of oil, ya, Ghee Roast! Easy, isn't it??
