You need the following to make thili dose :
Rice Flour : 1cup
All purpose flour/ maida : 1 tbsp
Mix all the above to make a runny batter.
Seasoning : 1/2 tsp oil, jeera, broken dry red chillies and curry leaves. Heat oil and add the ingredients in the order mentioned. Transfer this to batter.
Heat dose tava/girdle. Apply oil on the tava and spread it over the it evenly. Pour/Spread a big spoonfull of batter over the tava. Now this batter is not like normal dosa batter so you cannot spread the batter with the back of the spoon. All you need to do is to pour the batter rather than spreading it. Let it become crips before you spoon it out of the tava. Enjoy with chutney powder or chutney :) Thin, crisp lacy creepes are ready in less than 15 mins time. We enjoyed our dose with kobbari pudi (coconut chutney powder)
Few Tips :
1. Do not soak the batter. Mix the ingredients and start making.
2. I use maida because the rice flour which we get here is not very starchy kind. If you reside in India and use home made rice flour you may not need maida.
