The dosa is made using rice powder and red rice. The method of cooking the batter for the preparation of this dish differs from that used for making normal dosas. This dish is served with hot coconut chutney and sambar to give it a unique flavor.

The specialty of this dish lies in its outer layer, which is crisp, while inside, there is softness like idli or vada. The color of this dosa changes from red to yellow with the addition of red chilies to the batter while cooking it on a hot grill called Tava.

Tips for making Vidyarthi bhavan dosa recipe perfectly:

  1. You can add coconut powder to the dosa batter, but this is optional. If you want to do so, add ½ teaspoon of coconut powder.
  2. It would be best to have a non-stick pan for making dosas, as it will help you get perfect dosas without any butter or oil.
  3. Do not overfill your pan with dosa batter, as it may spill and burn while cooking. Also, please do not use too much oil in the pan while making dosas because it will result in greasy and soggy dosas, which are not good!
