Instructions

Preparing the Wheat Dosa Batter:

  • In a mixing bowl, add the wheat flour, rice flour, salt, and yogurt.
  • Add 1 cup of water and using a hand whisk, mix it thoroughly without any lumps.
  • Then add the remaining 1 cup of water little by little and bring it to thin dosa batter consistency. Let this sit for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  • After 30 minutes, In a separate tempering pan, heat the oil and when the oil is hot add the mustard seeds and cumin seeds. When they start to splutter, add it to the dosa batter. Mix it well, and now the wheat dosa batter is ready.

Preparing the Dosa:

    Method 1:

    • Heat the tawa and ensure it is over medium heat.
    • Take a ladle full of batter and pour it in the center of the tawa and spread it lightly and slowly. Do not spread it too thin.
    • Drizzle 1/2 tsp of oil around the edges and let it cook until the color changes like below. It takes about 1 to 1.5 minutes over medium heat.
    • Then carefully flip the dosa and let it cook for just 20 to 30 seconds.
    • Flip it back and fold the dosa and take it out in a plate.
    • Similarly, make the dosas with the remaining batter.

    Method 2:

    • Heat the tawa and ensure it is over medium heat.
    • Here we make it more like the rava dosai. Take a ladle full of batter and pour from the edges towards the center. Do not spread the dosa. You won't get a perfect round shape and also there will be holes like below.
    • Drizzle 1/2 tsp of oil around the edges and let it cook until the color changes. Then flip the dosa and cook again for 20 to 30 seconds.
    • Flip it back and fold the dosa and serve it.
    • Similarly, make the dosas with the remaining batter.
    • Serve the dosa hot with chutney or sambar or podi.

    Notes

    • Adjust the salt according to your preference.
    • While tempering, you can add green chilies and curry leaves too.
    • Do not add all the water. Add little by little as required.
