Kanchipuram dosa recipe

Kanchipuram dosa recipe | Kanchipuram dosai recipe – Popular South Indian Kanchipuram dosa recipe with full video and step-by-step pictures.

We usually make Kanchipuram idlis. Recently I heard from my friend that they make Kanchipuram dosai also. The same idli batter we make for Kanchipuram idlis will be used for making crispy dosas too. Her method of making the batter was a little different. Also, I have tasted her idli and loved it very much.

I was thinking to post this recipe in Jeyashris kitchen from the day I tried it. The addition of soaked moong dal is new to me. It gives nice crispiness to the dosa. Also in idlis it gives a nice crunch when we bite the paruppu in between.

Kanchipuram idlis are usually seasoned with pepper, cumin, and dry ginger powder. I am using fresh ginger in this recipe. Also, I have tempered the batter with mustard seeds and asafoetida in sesame oil. This gives a nice softness if you are making idlis and dosa.
