I know you must be wondering on the strange name right. Well, the name literally means “scoping into” when translated from Tamil. And this dosa ends up to being soft and spongy. The proportion is different from the Soft Dosa or Kal Dosa
that Amma makes.
She got this from a paper clipping and I asked her again and again if she read it right. She said there was no other name and in the recipe description, they talk about throwing in a fistful of the ingredients. Anyways after trying it out, it turned out to be good, and the combination was also quite new.
This was supposed to be served with Puli Chutney or Tamarind Chutney. The chutney was quite sour and with a spongy dosa, it ended up being soaked up. This joins the 101 Dosa Club.

Wash and soak the rice along with dals for over 6 -7 hours. Then grind to a smooth batter.
Ferment overnight. When you are ready to make the dosas, heat a tawa greased with oil. Just as you would make your regular dosas, spread across, sprinkle with oil and cook on both sides.
Serve with Puli Chutney or Groundnut chutney.
