AVAlakki Mosaru Dose - Poha Curd Dosa
Avalakki Mosaru Dose or the Poha Curd Dosa made using Avalakki and mosaru is one of the easiest dosas to make. It is crisp, soft and is totally yum.
  • 1 cup - Rice
  • ½ cup - Thick beaten rice
  • 1 cup - Sour curd
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 Tbsp - Sugar
  1. Place the curd out on the platform for 4 to 6 hours or more. It is very important that the curd is in room temperature and extremely sour. Placing it out of the refrigerator for hours helps it get back to room temperature, as well as turn more sour. The curd has to be acidic  almost. You should be able to smell the sourness. The sourer the better. This point is key to getting this Dose right.
  2. To make the Avalakki Mosaru Dose, wash the rice well and soak it in water
  3. Rinse the poha and mix it with the curd and set it aside.
  4. Soak the rice in water and poha in curd separately.
  5. Let the rice and poha soak for 4 hours.
  6. Grind both poha and rice together to a smooth paste with minimum water. Grind it till is is super smooth. (One tip is to touch the ground batter and see if it is slightly warm to touch, warm batter ferments well)
  7. Pour it into a huge bowl , mix a tsp of salt and cover the bowl with a lid and let it out to ferment.
  8. The batter will ferment in a couple of hours if the temperature outside is high, if not it may take longer, up to 4 hours.
  9. You can cover the bowl with a plate and leave it out overnight on your kitchen platform as well and keep a plate under it to collect any over flowing batter. You can refrigerate once the batter is done and use it for a week.
  10. This batter ferments very well and quickly (see image below :) )
  11. Do not add too much water while grinding as the sour curd will release water and the batter tends to get watery.
  12. Add sugar and salt to taste to the batter before you make the dosas. Sugar helps caramelise and give a gold colour to the dosas.
  13. Fry them with ghee or butter and it tastes yum.
