Lightly spray a nonstick griddle or frying pan with cooking spray and heat it over medium-high heat. Ladle 1/4 cup of batter into the center of the hot griddle and immediately, beginning at the center, spread the batter out in a circular motion, using the bottom of the ladle, until the batter is spread out thinly. Spoon some oil around the edges and cover. When the dosa is cooked through and crisp, about 2 minutes, flip it over and fry the other side, 1 minute, adding more oil as necessary. Serve hot.
