Kalikanji dosa is a famous dish in down south in Tamilnadu. It is a very delicious dosa variety and easy to make. We make kanji out of the rice batter and hence we call it as Kalikanji dosa. Also this dosa is in white color. For appam, we used to make very very thick kanji like a kali format. But for this kalikanj, the kanji should be little thick like a koozh with pouring consistency. This kanji will give a little sourness to the dosa as we are not going to keep the batter for fermentation process. We can't categorize this dosa as instant but this is one of the easiest breakfast dish which we can make quickly.
