  5. Mix chopped onion and tora leaves, check if the spiciness and salt is proper. You are batter is ready.
  6. Heat a tava grease it with oil. Take a spoonful of batter and spread it into small round shape (like a small dosa) similarly you can spread 3 -4 dosa in a tava at a time depending upon the size of tava that you have.
  7. Reduce the flame to very low, close the tava with a lid. After 5 minutes open the lid sprinkle few drops of oil and flip them. Again close the lid and let it cook for about 10-12 minutes in a simmer.
  8. Remove the dosa's after both the side are cooked properly. Serve hot as a side dish for lunch.

  2. Use roasted dry red chillies. In a pan add 2 tbsp oil and roast in a very low flame.
  3. onion takes lot of time to cook , that is the reason you need to cook these dosa's in a very low flame. In a high flame it gets burnt very spoon and the veggie's remain uncooked.
