Wash and soak the samo for a couple of hours prior.
Drain the water and blend to a smooth paste, adding very little water for blending 2-3 tbsp.
In a bowl, add the blended samo, buttermilk, rajagra flour and stir until all is mixed together.
Add salt, green chillies and ginger.
The mixture should be a slightly runny consistency, same as the usual dosa mix/pancake mix.

fresh tomatoes chopped finely
fresh coriander chopped finely
sugar and lemon juice (optional)
METHOD for filling:
Heat oil in a pan and add the cumin, once it sizzles add the potatoes, salt, pepper, garam masala and green chillies.
Just a very little water if needed to cook the potatoes (as it needs to be a dry potato curry)
Once potatoes cooked add the capsicum, tomatoes, coriander and sugar and lemon juice (optional)
Cook for a further 5 minutes.
Leave aside to fill the dosa.
INGREDIENTS Fresh Coconut chutney:
Fresh grated coconut amount as per your taste
