My Observations:

Like Varutha paruppu(Fried Dhal) adai ,this also goes well with onion green chilly chutney and tomato onion chutney.

Coconut chutney is a universal combo.

While grinding be careful with water level,as bottle gourd also contains water.

If the batter becomes so watery the dosa will break while flipping.

If the batter becomes runny ,adjust by adding rice flour.

You can also dry roast rice and dhal before soaking like Varutha paruppu(Fried Dhal) adai recipe.
