I tried it, it came out really well. I have infact never tried the instant. I have only had it in the restaurants because I thought it was hard to make. The only difference is, the restaurant style has a course sooji feel, whereas your recipe had a maida feel. Is it your special homestlye recipe or can we have variations like add course rava and cut the maida and rice down to 1cup? Let me know.. I will also try the variations. But your recipe the dosa came out really well, it never stuck to the tava and I felt like a pro because there was no mess. Thanks for the recipe.

Hey, You can try using Coarse Sooji Rava instead of Fine sooji. If you think its too soft, you can add rice flour and Coarse sooji.

Thanks for your comments!!! Let me know of any recipes you would like me to post on this blog.
