Thosai (Thin sourish pancake) தோசை

You love thosai? For those who not familiar with the name, Here a short introduction.
The dosa, dosai, thosai, or dhosa is a savoury South Indian crêpe. This snack, high in carbohydrates and proteins, is a typical South Indian breakfast item.Regular dosa batter is made from lentils and rice blended with water and left to ferment overnight. (The same batter, slightly modified, can be used to make idlis.) The lentils and rice can be replaced with highly refined wheat flour to make a maida dosa or semolina for a rava dosa.The batter is then ladled in small amounts onto a flat, preheated pan, where it is allowed to spread out into a circular shape and is fried with edible oil or ghee until golden brown. The dosa is then neatly folded in half and served.
Ok that's history. Wanna know how to do?

1 cup Uncooked rice
1/2 cup Blackgram dhal (urad dhal)
1 1/2 teaspoons Dried yeast
1/2 cup Warm water
1 teaspoon Sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons Salt
2 teaspoons Ghee or oil
1/4 teaspoon Mustard seeds
1 Small onion, finely chopped
1 Fresh green chili, finely chopped

Heat a pancake pan or heavy frying pan and grease base with very little ghee or oil.
Pour in just enough batter to cover base of pan.
Pancakes should be about the size of a small plate.
Cook until golden brown on underside, turn and cook other side.
Serve with fresh chutneys and potato bhaji.
