What is the heat of Dosa?
Heat the dosa pan on medium heat for approx 5 min until it is very hot. Make sure it is heated uniformly by moving the pan around on the flame. Do not add any oil / ghee to the pan. When it is hot enough (just short of smoking), sprinkle some water from the bowl on the surface of the pan.
Do you cook dosa on both sides?

Why is my dosa not spreading?
Your batter is too thick. Even though the traditional plain Dosas or Masala Dosas do require a relatively thicker batter consistency, it should be of pouring consistency. Don’t make it too thick, as the batter might stick to the pan instead of spreading evenly on the pan’s surface.

While making paper dosa, one important tip is to maintain the temperature of the tawa. If the tawa is even slightly hot, you won’t be able to spread the batter. If the tawa is not hot, the dosa will not become crisp. Thus while cooking, you need to maintain a medium temperature in the tawa.
What if dosa batter does not ferment?

Why is fenugreek added to dosa batter?
Why do we use fenugreek or methi seeds in dosa-idli batter making? Chef Vinod: Methi seeds contain compounds high in beta-glucans. They help hold carbon dioxide, which makes idlis fluffy and soft. Methi seeds also give viscosity to the batter.
Should you flip a dosa?
Once a droplet of water sizzles on the surface, lower the heat and pour a ladleful of batter into the centre of the pan. Carry on cooking until the top is dry – if you’ve made the dosa thick, you may wish either to flip it or to put a pan lid on top to help it along.
