How to Make a Good Dosa Batter at Home
When it comes to making a good dosa batter at home, there are a few key ingredients in the recipe that will make all the difference.
One aspect is the preparation time for the ingredients. You need to ensure enough planning and time to soak the black gram lentils and rice. Soaking ensures the ingredients are supple enough to be blitzed by the blender (or wet stone if you want to go down the traditional path). This leads us to the other important ingredient in successful dosa batters – the blender.
Blenders are much more convenient than a wet stone (grinder) for many reasons. Blenders are versatile and can be used for many uses (other than dosa batter). They can be stored easier due to their tall thin builds. And the are light and mobile, that is not like lifting a bag a bricks around the kitchen.

Must Have Features you need in your Blender to Make Dosa Batter
You have seen our recommended blenders for making dosa batter, but now let’s take a look at why they made the top 3 best blenders list.
When it comes to blending, the power of the motor will usually determine how effective and consistent your dosa batter will be at the end of the process.
Obviously the more powerful the motor the smoother the mixture you will receive. However, the more powerful a motor, the more noise and vibrations occur. So looking for that happy medium is always a safe option. We would recommend a blender that has a minimum of 100 V of power in the motor to ensure a smooth dosa batter.
Container Size and Design
It may not be the first thing you think of when choosing a blender, however the capsule (or container) design is extremely important. Especially when it comes to dosa batter. When you are processing the lentils and rice, you need a container that has minimal dead spots/areas in the container. Dead spots are areas where ingredients get caught and don’t mix around in the usual cycle. These are generally deep corners in squarish containers.
Our recommendation is rounded or smooth beveled edged containers to encourage the ingredients to mix and move around while the blades are spinning.
Preset Mixing Settings
Preset programmes on the blender are very helpful for those wanting a quick set and forget blender. It is much easier to set your blender on a pre-programmed option, rather than having to watch your blender and manually control the mixture.
The pre-programmed settings are usually recommended as they will involve a few different cycles of pulsing action and longer blitz settings to help achieve a smooth dosa batter.
The last thing you will want to consider in your next blender is the self cleaning features and on going maintenance.
Many of the top brands will include a self cleaning mode within the pre-programmed buttons. This usually involves adding warm soapy water into the capsule and setting a cleaning cycle at a push of a button.
Other blenders are dishwasher safe, which is great for easy cleaning.
Blenders are such versatile ktichen appliances. We would recommend every home cook should have a blender that is a good all rounder.
