2 cups rice
1/2 cup poha/aval/rice flakes
3 1/2 cups thick buttermilk (sour)
1 tsp methi seeds
1/4 tsp cooking soda
1/2 tsp salt
oil as required

Soak rice, poha, methi seeds in thick buttermilk overnight (8-10 hrs). Next morning, grind to a smooth paste. The batter should be of pouring consistency. Add salt and cooking soda and combine well. Leave aside for 2 hours.

Pre-heat an iron tawa on high for half a minute. Do the water test (sprinkle few drops of water over the hot tawa such that it sizzles) and reduce heat. Pour a large ladle full of dosa batter in the center of the tawa and gently with the back of the ladle make a very slight circular motion. Pour a half a tsp of oil like drops along the edge of the dosa. Cover with a lid and on medium heat let the dosa cook for a minute till the rawness disappears and the dosa browns. Flip the dosa and let it cook for a less than half a minute (need not cover with lid). Flipping the dosa and cooking on the other side is optional.

Serve hot with chutney.
