'Vodu' means earthen in Kannada and Tulu language. Dosa is prepared in a concave shaped earthen vessel or tava. It will be spongy, soft and delicious too. Dosa will be cooked on one side. Because of concave shape centre part of the dosa will be thick and periphery will be thin. Those who don't have the earthen 'vodu' can try with nonstick pan as I did. In non stick pan the dosa will be uniformly thick. Try this vodu dosa and have a wonderful break fast!!!.To improve the taste dip the dosa few minutes in sweet coconut milk. The Konkani community call this as Surli Bhakri and it goes well any spicy curry, chutney or jaggery coconut milk.
