  1. Excellent recipe for Sunday breakfast ! One question though … Malagai Podi — is it same as Malga Podi powder / gun powder ? I am on hunt for an authentic Malga Podi recipe …

  2. Megala. I enjoyed reading the post about your family. This is another healthy and yummy dosa recipe.

  3. It seems heartbreaking that even Indians are on the verge of loosing their entire Food Culture and heritage to the so called ‘Advancement of life’. But then in midst of that –by seeing posts like yours gives me hope that there are people who will carry the heritage and knowledge of our country ahead and give to our younger generation to pursue. Keep sharing your knowledge about food. Good Day

    1. I’m so delighted to find your comment resonating my thoughts. Thanks so much for stopping by.

  4. This type of dosa is new to me .It is so nice that you carry on the traditions that you learnt and are sharing it .Looks very healthy and delicious am sure the hot chutney would be amazing with it. Lovely share Megala !

  5. (EN) Dosai are my favourite dish and I too use rice and urad dal for the batter. It’s so nice to learn from you these tasty recipes from you.I’ll try this. Thanks so much for sharing Megala ?
    (IT) I dosai sono il mio piatto preferito e anch’io uso riso e urad dal. É così bello imparare queste ricette saporite da te. La proverò. Grazie mille per la condivisione Megala ?

  6. Sometime back nothing it was wasted and from leftovers amazing dishes used to come out ?
    Nowadays people are wasting a lot of food unfortunately!
    It looks really delicious dear Megala! ??

  7. Yum! I loved hearing about your agricultural roots too. Shame you can’t find the broken bits anymore~ I hope today’s farmers still use them and don’t throw them away.

    1. I think those nutritious sandy grains are sold as animal feed nowadays. 🙂
      Thanks, Kristen!

  8. Black urad is indeed very beneficial especially for young girls and women, my dadi used to tell us about it’s benefits.. I too come from the family of farmers from North India, and have seen grains stocked in pots in one room. thanks for sharing different dosa or dosai recipe.

    1. We, south Indians, do prepare dishes using blackgram a lot. I’m glad you liked this recipe.
      Thank you.

  9. Though I used to make dosa this way, never knew it’s name, “Kurunai Dosai”! We use coconut chutney with green chillies or tomato chutney with this. Thanks for sharing Megala!

    1. Actually we are not supposed to call it as kurunai dosai as no kurunai is used in here nowadays. 🙂
      It is so nice to hear that you are still making the batter using de-skinned urad dal.
      Thank you so much!

  10. Thank you for this authentic, traditional recipe. I wonder if the youngsters of today would have even heard of these dishes from the past.
    This post brought memories of my own childhood many decades ago. My father’s family had farms in the suburbs which we visited once a month. I remember the room in my paternal grandmother’s house which was piled with bags of grain right up to the ceiling. There also used to be a bullock and cart tied up near the front entrance. As time passed for the reasons you said the farms were sold.
    Lifestyes have changed so much!

    1. Yes! I’m so delighted that this post made you reminisce about your childhood days spent in your grandfather’s farm. It also took me to those happy days, and I realize that we lived in such a safe environment free from pollutants. I do hope that people would go back to farming sooner or later. 🙂
      Thanks much for sharing your thoughts.

  11. Such a quite interesting dosa, looks satisfying and filling ?
    You know what… I’m a huge fan of dosas, definitely give it a try sometime ?
    And the picture makes me droolicious ?
