Wheat dosa

Ingredients (Serves 2):
2 cups wheat flour
5-6 cups water
2 tsp mustard seeds
2 tsp cumin seeds
1/2 tsp asafoetida
1 sprig of curry leaves - chopped
1 green chilli
1/4 tsp  pepper powder
1/4 tsp red chilli powder
1/4 tsp turmeric powder

1) In a skillet, heat 2 Tbsp oil. Add mustard seeds and wait for it to splutter. Add cumin seeds, curry leaves, asafoetida. Add this to the wheat flour. Add turmeric, pepper and red chilli powder as well.
2) Add water. Mix to remove any lumps. Consistency should be like that of thick butter milk - more watery than dosa. Check for salt
3) Heat a pan(tava). Once hot, take a ladleful of batter and pour it on the pan in a spiral motion. Note that  you cannot spread the batter like a typical dosa but you'll need to pour it like a rava dosa.
4) Add few drops of oil on the dosa. Wait for 2 minutes and flip to the other side and wait again for 2 minutes.


  1. Thanks for this post. We had a lot of wheat flour and did not know what to do with it as we are too lazy to prepare chapatis. [me and my room mates]

    This is a good healthy quick one to make and eat. :)

  2. Glad you liked it!!!! :) Beats cereal any day :)
