  1. Can we store and use the leftover batter next day ? Or will it lose its fluffiness ?

    And can we use broken wheat instead of jowar ?

    1. Hi Preeti,
      The batter can be stored in fridge and used to make dosas next day.
      I’ve no idea about using broken wheat instead of jowar.

  2. Do you have a Youtube channel as well with this kind of content on it? I would love to see this post turned into a longer video if possible. Maybe I can share on it on my website.

    1. Hi Brain,
      Yes, just recently I’ve started a youtube channel in the same name. I’m a beginner in that area and slowly learning about technical things. Thankyou!
