Tips :

Always mix all the ingredients only at the time of serving, as it leaves water quickly. The watery content is very tasty to drink. But many do not know about its taste and they waste it. Its shelf life is very less so you have to prepare and consume it. Storage in the refrigerator may last upto half a day. If at all you have any leftover kosambari, you can soak for dosa along with rice and make fluffy dosas the next day.
