South Indian delight on our vegetarian days. Masala Dosa with Coconut Chutney is one of my childhood favorites!

1 1/2 cup cooked Rice

1/2 cup uncooked rice

1/2 cup whole urad dal (black lentils)

1/2 tsp fenugreek seeds

2 Tbsp channa dal

1 2 Tur dal – 1 1/2 tbsp

Salt needed


Soak cooked rice, raw rice, urad dal, fenugreek seeds, channa dal and tur dal in water for 4-5 hours.

Wash and grind everything together to a smooth texture adding water, little at a time. We use our Vitamix blender.

Add needed salt (about a teaspoon) and leave it overnight in a warm place to ferment.

Before making dosa, add a tsp of sugar, little water and mix well to get the dosa batter consistency which is a little thinner than pancake mix.

Heat a large non-stick griddle or large fry pan we use a cast iron skillet to medium high heat.

Add a tablespoon of organic high heat oil. Pour a ladleful of the batter on it and spread it in a circular motion to make a 225 mm. (9”) diameter thin circle.

The batter should be very thin and it’s a bit of an art to get it right the first few times.

Drizzle a very little oil over it and along the edges and cook on a high flame till the dosa turns brown in colour and crisp.

Fold over to make a semi-circle or a roll.

This makes about 7 or 8 dosas.

Serve immediately with coconut chutney and sambhar.
