  1. The above recipe need rice to be soaked as well? It’s not mentioned so just confirming.

    Also why do small batch for fermentation and not the whole the batter?


    1. Soak rice and dals together . Because of different Dals I didn’t suggest to ferment whole batter . But fermented dosa’s taste good and good for health . The fermentation process breaks down the starches so they are more readily metabolized by the body .
