1. The batter should be watery and have thin pouring consistency . It should not be thick because cracks may form while making dosa.
2. Each time while making dosa should mix the batter well with the ladle from bottom to top.
3. While making any dosa if it’s sticking to the Tawa, just cut the edge of an onion and sprinkle little water onto the Tawa and rub the cut portion of onion on tawa. It will really work as a non stick coat and the dosas will come up effortlessly.
