Wheat Dosa


Healthy b'fast is the way to start your day. Today's recipe is to recreate your favorite dosa into a healthy  way using wheat flour instead of all purpose flour/maida.

When you are craving for rava dosa try this variation instead of regular recipe. 


1 cup wheat flour
2tbsp finely coarse wheat/upma rava
1tsp cumin seeds
2 or 3 green chilies chopped
1 medium sized onion finely chopped (Optional) (Today I skipped using onion)
salt as per taste

oil for shallow fry


Mix all the ingredients(except oil) with water into a thinner version of pancake batter consistency.

Heat a pan(cast iron or non stick), add 1 tsp of oil, spread it with top part of onion(You can use other vegetable tops like brinjal or bottle gourd). This is to season the pan so that the dosa comes off easily without sticking to the pan. The pan must be hot for dosa to come out in good shape. You can check the hotness of pan by sprinkling water on the pan, it must sizzle.

Take one ladle full of batter pour it from the edges to the center. Add 1tsp of oil around the corners of dosa this helps dosa to cook evenly and crispy.

Once dosa turns golden brown remove it from pan and serve with your favorite chutney.
