Wheat Dosa

Wheat dosa is one of the instant dosas you can prepare when you are in a hurry. I learnt this from my mom. She used to make it crispier like Rava dosas, ofcourse spooning some extra drops of oil. But I always prefer less oil, so I don't mind my dosas to be soft as they would still taste good. Soft or crisp is upto your choice..


Wheat flour - 1 cup
Rice flour - 1 cup(optional)
Water - 4 cups approximately
Salt and hing as per taste

To Temper

Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Cumin seeds - 2 tsp
Pepper - 1 tsp (optional)
Curry leaves as per taste
Green chillies -2 finely chopped
Ginger - small piece finely chopped

  1. In a bowl mix together wheat flour and rice flour. Add salt and hing.
  2. Add water little at a time and mix well so that there are no lumps. Use a whisk or egg beater for a better result.
  3. Do the tempering and pour it into the dosa batter.The batter should be watery and thin for crispy dosas or you can prefer to keep it in medium spreading consistency, the dosas will not turn too crispy but still will taste good.
  4. Heat a skillet and pour a ladle full of batter and cook on both sides drizzling few drops of oil.
** Reduce the quantity of water to 2 cups if you are planning to omit rice flour.
