Dosa from South India is a staple food in its home region.  Dosas are most popular In the rest of the countrytoo, In  addition to taste in yummy its contain highly carbohydrate and  protein. Being north Indian its very much difficult for me to  make perfect dosa, Perfecting my dosa recipe hasn't been easy,It took a lot of experimentation, after several trial and error  sessions in the kitchen, but finally I have the best dosa batter recipe and method for you. This can serving with other south  Indian foods . you can make dosa with variety of combination  from just plain dosa to dosas with variety of fillings, like potato  curry ,cheese, tomato ,garlic ,vegetable, combo etc.
For Batter:  
1+ 1/2 cups rice
1/2 cup split black gram skinless(urad dal)
1 teaspoon fenugreek seeds
Water as needed
Salt to taste
For Filling:
1  large potato boiled and cut in cubed
1 medium onion chopped
2 tablespoon oil
1/2 teaspoon split black gram skinless
1/2  teaspoon mustard seeds
1/4  teaspoon turmeric powder
1 teaspoon green chili paste
curry leaves
salt to taste
1 teaspoon lime juice
coriander chopped for garnish
Separately soak rice and black gram (urad dal) and fenugreek at least 4 to 5 hours in water.
Grind to paste, mix together than add water to make thick batter.
Leave this batter in room temperature overnight.
Add more water and salt and make thin batter put aside. (It's not to be very thin or thick).
Heat the oil, add mustard seed, split black gram, curry leaves and chopped onions.
Fry for about 2 minutes on medium heat add potatoes,turmeric powder, salt, green chili paste and mix well. Add lime juice and coriander leaves mix well your filling is ready keep aside
Heat non stick pan or griddle with little oil.
Spread the 1/2 cup of batter on pan in circular motion to make thin Dosa, Cook on both the sides, if desired.  If you make Masala Dosa spread the ½ cup batter on griddle in circular motion and spred oil cook one side than add the filling inside or top of Dosa hold it one side and roll it.
If you make  corn dosa than spread 1/2 cup batter on griddle in   circular motion and cook one side .When the dosa is of turn take your and just running your spatulas in the center and cut the dosa, dosa change the color that time take one part of dosa and fold like corn
