Put a dosa tawa(or if you have, use an appam patra) over a medium flame, when the tawa is sufficiently hot, sprinkle some drops of water and rinse them off with a clean cloth. Now, pour about 2 tbsp of batter on the tawa and do not spread it, let it be cooked over slow flame, till it’s colour is a bit changed and holes are seen in it. No need to flip it, just take it on the plate directly.
