To begin making the Schezwan Masala Dosa Recipe, first prepare the dosa batter.
To begin making the classic Idli & Dosa Batter, first in a bowl soak the urad dal, methi seeds together. In another bowl, soak the rice. Soak them for at least 6 hours or overnight.
Once soaked, grind them. Into a mixer grinder, add the soaked urad dal and methi seeds. Add little water at a time and grind to make a thick flowing batter.
Transfer the ground urad dal into a large bowl. In the same mixer grinder, add the rice and add just little water at a time and make thick batter. Transfer the rice into the same bowl as the urad dal.
Add the salt and stir well to combine. Cover the bowl and ferment the dosa batter for 8 hours or overnight.

Refrigerate the Idli & Dosa Batter in an airtight container for 4 to 5 days and use it as required.

Add the noodles into a pot of hot boiling water and allow it to soften and cook. This will take about 3 to 4 minutes. Once the noodles have softened, turn off the heat and drain the water.

Preheat a pan and add sesame oil to it. Once the oil is hot add the garlic, ginger, onions, green chillies and saute for a minute. Next add the capsicum and saute till the onions and capsicum turn soft.
Once done add the cabbage, carrot and sprinkle some salt. Do not add too much salt as the sauces have salt added to them. Saute until they vegetables turn a little soft.
After the vegetables have have turned soft and are cooked add all the sauces like the szechuan sauce, chili sauce, tomato ketchup, soy sauce. Stir well to combine. Add the cooked noodles to the wok and toss well so that the noodles gets well combined with the sauces. Sprinkle some spring onions and keep aside.
Preheat the dosa skillet over medium heat. Pour a ladleful of dosa batter, spread the batter in a circular motion from the inside to the out, to make a thin crepe.
