Dosa Recipes & Idli Recipes

(Dosa Varieties, Idli Varieties, Idli and Dosa Recipes, South Indian Dosa and Idli)

Idlis and Dosas are a staple food in all the southern states of India, Tamil nadu, Kerala, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Telangana. These have been existing since centuries and has been mentioned in both Tamil and Kannada works of ancient days. Similar variants are also found in Goa, Maharashtra and Orissa. Idli and dosa varieties are also common in other neighboring countries like Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bangladesh, Singapore, Malaysia etc.

I am amazed at the person who invented the dishes idli and dosa. It first starts with the batter preparation depending on the type of idli/dosa. After the batter is prepared, it has to be fermented for the best results. After refrigerator has become part of every household, idli/dosa batter is mostly available everyday in south indian homes. People make a big batch of the batter and refrigerate it. It saves so much time on busy working days.

Here I have a huge list of 50+ varieties of idlis and dosas.  I have shared the basic idli recipe and basic dosa recipe below. Along with that there are many variations to make it more nutritious like vegetable dosa, masala dosa, ragi dosa, oats dosa, wheat dosa etc. I have also shared other regional variations of dosas like the neer dosa, rava dosa etc. A special variant of dosa called adai is also popular in tamil nadu which has a combination of lentils. There are also many popular idli varieties like the kancheepuram idli, kushboo idli, rava idli etc. Do check out the different options, make it and enjoy.
