Tips for making Idli Dosa Appe Batter

To make soft idli Urad dal must be grounded very smoothly.

To make thin and crispy dosas batter must be flowy in consistency.

Fermentation is the key factor for achieving the softness and fluffiness.

If properly refrigerated batter can be used for a week.

Instead of rice we can use rice rava also. But it should be grinded for making dosas and appes.
