Bandale in Kannada means a round bottomed wok/pan. The Dosa/pancake is prepared in these types of pans and hence the name. It is also called as “Dodna” by South Canara residents. I knew Doddappa/Uncle and Doddamma/Aunt but had never heard of “Dodna” until I got married to a South Canarean. Maybe it is the Doddanna/elder brother of the plain Dosa ;). These Dosas/Pancakes are thick, spongy with crispy edges.
Time Required: 20 Minutes + Soaking Time + Fermenting Time
