Instant Dosa

I wanted to make something very quick for dinner today before my little one comes back from the daycare.

I came across this recipe once in Padhus kitchen . She had mentioned that this instant dosa will just take 2 minutes. So I thought, I will give it a try and the dosas came out really goodl. Nice alternative to the normal wheat dosa.

This recipe will yield 15 dosas approximately.


1. Wheat flour - 1 cup
2. Rice flour - 1 cup
3. Salt - as needed
4. Water - 4 1/2 cups

To temper:

1. Oil - 1 teaspoon
2. Cumin seeds- 1 teaspoon
3. Green chillies - 2 finely chopped
4. Hing - a generous pinch


1. Mix everything together mentioned in the ingredients section. make sure there are no lumps. The batter should be watery.
2. In a pan heat the oil and add cumin, green chillies and hing. Add this to the dosa batter.
3. Now make dosas. You will not be able to spread the batter in the dosa tawa like you would normally do. Take a spoon full of batter and make circle from the outer edge and the batter will naturally flow inside. If needed you can fill in using additional batter.
4. Spray little oil. This dosa takes a little longer to cook than the normal dosa. Flip it over once one side is cooked. Let the other side of the dosa cook.
5. Serve it hot with coconut chutney.
