Godhumai Dosai ( Wheat flour Dosai )


This is one of the easiest dosa to make and does not require fermentation like Idly/Dosa batter.  I usually make it when we want to make a quick dinner . This can be had with Milagai podi even if there is no time to make any chutney..


1) Wheat Flour – 1 cup

2) Water – 2 to 2.5 cups

3) Cumin seeds –  1 1/2 tsp

4) Green chillies – 1 or 2  nicely chopped ( depends on how spicy you want )

5) Salt – as per taste

6) Oil


Mix the wheat flour with water and salt to make the batter. Make sure there are no lumps. The batter should be thinner than the regular dosa batter. Add the cumin seeds and chopped chillies to the batter ( you can also temper the jeera and green chillies in the oil and add to the batter )

Heat the non stick tawa. Add little oil and rub the tawa pan with cut onion ( or I sometimes use the temple shaped wooden block) . Pour the batter from outside so that it form a pattern ( we cannot spread like the usual batter ) . Add oil on the sides and turn the dosa when you see the corners turning golden brown. Cook for few mins on the other side till it is crispier..

You can have it milagai podi or or some chutney. 

-- My MIL makes chilli –tamarind chutney which is usually so spicy –  I have not made it yet  - will post the recipe when I make the same.

-- My mom adds little rice flour to the batter, but dosas comes out well even if we are not adding it.
