Lets get right down to it. This is something you should make if you love extremely soft and porous textured dosa. Let me make it very clear, if you are a person who love something filling and wholesome stuff for breakfast, then this sponge dosa is for you. If you are a home maker who likes to save some grocery expenses, then this dosa is for you too. On top of all this it is 100% healthy with lots of carbohydrates and little of proteins. So guys, lets head on deep down the recipe.
For this recipe, we are using Rice and two varieties of it. One being the normal dosa rice and other one matta rice which is alternatively known as Kerala Red Rice. The matta rice has vital role in making sponge dosa literally spongy. Like the one that is pillow-soft, dense, airy and porous. You actually have to separately soak and grind this matta rice, which would otherwise make the grinding process difficult.
I made a statement above about cutting down grocery expenses which is directly connected with the lentils. Let me make that point more explanatory here. Unlike normal dosa recipes, sponge dosa has lentils in very very minimal amount. I have used only 3 teaspoon of split blackgram lentils but to my surprise, dosa has turned amazingly soft. Sounds exciting isn’t it?? This is the only factor which would absolutely touch the hearts of my dear friends to try out the sponge dosa in their own home I guess.
