    Have you ever made dosas? I haven't ever tried but I think they are notoriously difficult. Traditionally they are made from a fermented batter made of rice and gram flour. I've seen them on TV being made in India on street stalls - large, paper thin and made in a few seconds.

    Jamie Oliver has a recipe which is made with gram flour and wheat flour but the batter isn't fermented so I'm not sure its technically a dosa. https://www.jamieoliver.com/recipes/vegetables-recipes/amazing-indian-dosa/

    According to Wikipedia:
    I'm going to look up Madhur Jaffrey recipes. Meanwhile, have any of you made dosa and if so, how did you make the batter?

    I've found Madhur Jaffrey's recipe which may well put everyone off trying it! I'll post as a Recipe thread and link back here.

    They've featured on some TV food shows such as Rick Stein's India and The Hairy Bikers but in most cases I've seen, the street stall experts do it and the celebrity chefs have a go and fail!

    I started the thread because @murphyscreek mentioned elsewhere that he had tried making them without much success.

    I found the recipe in Eastern Vegetarian Cooking - a serious book with no photos only diagrams!

    Page 119 in her book, too many things, I like simple.lol. I'm doing Indian night here for family tomorrow night. Was just flicking through madhurs book and found dosas.
    I'll prolly make onion bhagees and samosas for entree and tandoori chicken and lamb and silver beet chop curry. Kids quite happy to have that.
