Thuppa dosa/Ghee dosa

I had prepared this dosa sometime back and found this today in the album.This is the second thuppa dosa or ghee dosa in the space.I adapted this recipe from my FB friend Mrs Nandini Kini Akka.Normally these dosas are spread thick,but since my folks like thin or medium dosa I spread it as per our needs.Refer for the first thuppa dosa post here.
