Partially boiled rice-1 cup
Raw rice-1 cup
Black gram dal-1/2 cup
Rice flakes-2 tbsp
Salt to taste

Soak both rice together for 2 hours and urad dal and rice flakes for 1/2 an hour.

Grind urid dal and rice flakes together into fine paste/

Then grind the rice to a fine paste and mix with urid batter.

The consistency must be pouring consistency like pan cake batter.

Add salt and stir well. Allow to ferment for 8 hours. In cold parts, it takes more time to ferment. After fermentation batter raises.

Prepare thick spongy dosas. Serve hot with sambhar and/or chutney. 

Same batter gives soft idly too. If thin dosas are needed then thin the batter with little water. If we try to get crispy dosa then it won't turn out crispy. This batter gives only soft dosa or idly.
