Take all ingredients mentioned under " to grind batter " in a large bow, wash it with water 1-2 times and soak in water for 4-5 hours.
Drain the excess water and grind the ingredients in a mixer or grinder for 20-30 minutes until it reaches dosa batter consistency.
Transfer the batter to a container.Add salt and keep aside overnight for fermentation for 2-3 hours.
In the morning , mix the batter well , add hing to it.
Heat a skillet/tawa .Take a laddle full of the batter and spread uniformly thin dosas, drizzle with little oil/ ghee.Cover the lid for approx 15 sec.Remove the lid and cook over medium flame till it is crisp and golden brown in color all around.
Plain crispy Adai Dosa ready to serve...!!! Relish it with coconut chutney / chutney powder / aviyal .But how to make Spicy Adai Dosa ?
Coarsely grind coconut, ginger,green chilly and jeera.Add this to the batter along with drumstick leaves,finely chopped (onion+coriander leaves+curry leaves).Keep aside for 5mins so that the flavour gets transferred to the batter.
After 5 mins,proceed to make dosa.Since you have added onions and other herbs you cannot spread it too thin,it will be slightly thicker and you need to roast on both sides.Spicy Adai Dosa is ready...
