Mushti polo

There's something about this soft, spongy goodness that hits the spot. This is one among my 3 favourite kinds of dosa's that I can eat any given day............the other 2 are pannpolo and surnoli...Yum

2 cups rice
1/2 cup Urad dal
1 cup poha
1/2tsp methi seeds
1/2 cup coconut
1 fistful cooked rice

Soak rice and daals in water for around 3hrs. Grind it with coconut. Add soaked poha and cooked rice and grind to a very smooth paste. Mix salt and keep it overnight for fermentation.

I sometimes use one musti(fistful) leftover rice since that's what makes it musti polo. I remember Mauma using ukudo tandla sheath for the musti and you cant mimic the taste with surai tandulache sheath.
This dosa is supposed to be thick , not spread around too much and also not needed to turn over.

Serve hot with any chutney.
My favourite chutney is either kotombari chutney or hing chutney.
