3. Final Step of Masala Dosa Preparation:-
  • Take a Tawa/ Griddle and grease it with Oil on medium gas.

Hot Tip:- Spear oil only on iron pan or griddle, but if using a non-sticking pan do not spear oil on it as the batter will not spread on it.

  • Then put Dosa Batter on it with a Ball Scoop (Gol Karchul).
  • Now spread it on Tawa in a smooth texture.

Hot Tip:- If you are unable to spread Dosa batter on iron pan or griddle then sprinkle some water on it as it may be too hot, either your Dosa Batter may be too thick so add some water to it and then try. This will not help if using non-sticking so in this you just slow gas and or if too hot close it and then spread Dosa Batter on it and open gas again. In any case first, see your Dosa batter should be thin.
