Set Dosa With Brown Rice/Crepe With Brown Rice

Set Dosa With Brown Rice/Crepe With Brown Rice

Today I came with an popular dosa of Karnataka state.  It is very hard for South Indians to imagine their day without idli or dosa. Today's recipe is set dosa. It will be soft and delicious. Normal dosa will be crisp and set dosa will be soft as we use poha/pressed rice. In restaurants, 2 or 3 will be served per plate, so they are known as Set dosa. 

Before marriage I learned only few recipes and after marriage I used to prepare the few recipes every time. I decided to make some special tiffin for my hubby and started goggling and found set dosa recipe and prepared it and got compliments. This happened long ago and completely forgot the recipe. One week back again I came across set dosa recipe. I searched many set dosa recipes but not satisfied with any of them, so tried on my own and it was a big hit.  I want to make it healthy so instead of white rice I added brown rice and it tasted delicious.
