Dhoddak/Idli batter Pancakes Recipe

Dhoddak is a close cousin if the Uthappa sans onions and spice. Idli batter is used to make it. A small pan called Kadhai is used to make the Dhoddak as each of it has to be seasoned individually with mustard seeds.

Ingredients :

  • 250 gms urad dal/Split Black Gram
  • 600 gms rice
  • Salt.

Method :

Wash and soak both rice and urad dal separately for 5 hours. Grind the urad dal in the grinder non stop for half an hour adding water at regular intervals. Grind the rice in the mixer to a rava like consistency.
Mix both the urad and rice batters, add salt and allow to ferment overnight or for 10 -12 hours. Alternatively you can use Idli batter too.


Heat a Kadhai. Drizzle a tsp of oil. Drop in a few mustard seeds and after they crackle pour a ladleful of the batter. Drizzle with oil on the sides. Cover and roast the Dhoddak to a golden brown. Flip. Roast on the other side too. Serve with coconut chutney.
