Notes
**If you don't have an Instant Pot and if you live in a cold place: dosa batter can be fermented in the oven. Preheat the oven to the lowest temperature for 5 minutes, turn off the oven and place the dosa batter in the oven for 8 to 10 hours or overnight. It will be well fermented the next morning.
**If you live in a warm place, place the dosa batter on the counter top overnight.
