Puli dosa - Pulusu Dosa

Pulusu  dosa is an authentic Vysyas Recipe. It is made with Raw rice, Jaggery & tamarind. Tangy taste of tamarind & mild sweet taste of jaggery makes the dosa, so tasty. I am the fan of this dosa. This is a soft crispy dosa , soft at centre & crispy at edges. My mother makes this dosa often. but here he don't like this dosa, so i make rarely. if we get spring onions, i make this dosa . This dosa tastes great with spring onions.

I love this. I make it once in a while. I add toor dal instead of channa dal. I also add coconut, curry leaves and asafoetida and jeera when grinding. It gives a nice aroma. I also make it with drum stick leaves instead of spring onions. It tastes yummy!
