I use split black gram dal in this recipe, but you may also use the whole black gram dal. Many people have a doubt that if black split  grams are ground along with the skin then how it will taste. It is very tasty if they are ground and fermented properly. The best accompaniment for this black urid dal dosa are onion garlic coconut thuvaiyal, ellu podi  and  powdered palm jaggery.  Follow these simple step by step instructions for a super tasty and healthy dosa. For this dosa, it is important not to over grind the urid dal. If you over grind it with more water then the dosa will turn very thin and flat not fluffy. Make sure to grind the dal and rice in correct consistency.
