Who does not like Mysore Masala Dosa!
The batter recipe:
I must thank Lakshmi for this fantastic recipe ( It really works :)

2 cups boiled rice
3/4 cup urad dal
1/2 cup sago/ javvarsi
2 tbsp channa dal
1 tsp methi seeds
Mysore Masala Dosa Ingredients

Fermented Batter

Soak rice separately. Soak the other ingredients in another container. Let them soak for 4-5 hours. Grind urad dal to a smooth batter first. Then grind the other ingredients. Mix the two batters, mix salt and allow it to ferment for 24 hrs or till the volume of the batter doubles and you can smell the sourness of the batter.

Mysore Masala Dosa Filling

Take a ladleful of batter and pour on a hot griddle. Swiftly spread it in a circular motion. Add oil and roast till golden brown. Flip it and continue to roast with another tsp oil till golden. Flip it again, spread a tbsp of chutney and 2 tbsp of potato masala. Fold dosa and serve hot!

Masala / Palya recipe:

Boil 2 potatoes. Mash them lightly and keep aside. Add 3 tsp oil in a kadai, add 1 tsp mustard seeds, 1/2 tsp channa dal, 1/2 tsp urad dal. When golden, add 1 chopped onion and saute till transparent. Add 2 tbsp peas and 1/2 chopped carrot. Sprinkle some water and cook well. Add potatoes and mix well. Add salt, turmeric, chilli powder and simmer till done.

Chilli powder can be substituted with green chillies (add along with onions)

parboiled rice...maybe if you live in the US, you could try the idli rice (kind of rounder than parboiled rice), not sure if that would do the trick...

also you could reduce the urad by 2 tsp (maybe your urad is of very good quality) or reduce the methi coz sometimes methi could be the culprit for sticky dosa
