Onion(chopped)                         250 gm
Raw rice (Idly rice)                    500 gm
Black gram                                    175 gm
Fenugreek seeds                               1/2 tsp
Salt                                                    to taste
Oil                                              for frying

1. Wash rice and black gram. Soak both rice and black gram and fenugreek seeds seperately for atleast 2 hours.
2. Grind black gram along with fenugreek seeds in a wet grinder in to a fine paste by adding water in between when it thickens. It will take atleast 30 to 45 mins for grinding into a smooth paste. Transfer into a big vessel.
3. Now grind raw rice into a paste but not too smooth as black gram. Takes 15 minutes to grind. Add salt before 5 minutes.
4. Now mix both the batters into the same big vessel.
5. Allow batter to ferment atleast for 12 hours.
6. Heat a dosa tava (cast iron tava) and brush it lightly with oil. When hot, pour a ladel full of batter, spread using a circular motion to make a thick dosa.
7. Put chopped onion on the top and press it slightly so half of onion goes inside batter. 
8. Pour oil on the edges and cook on both sides in a slow fire. Remove once onions are cooked well.
9. Serve hot with Sambar and Coconut chutney
