Healthy Dosa Recipe

This no fermentation Dosa is a wonderful combination of Urad Dal/ Split Black Gram, Moong Dal/Split Green Gram and Chana Dal/Bengal Gram Dal . This is my sister in law Jayasree Varma Nayak’s recipe and though she made a tomato curry to go with it with it, I have stuck to a coconut chutney as the family prefers their Dosas accompanied by a Chutney. You can make both crisp or a soft Dosa with this batter. Spread it thin and you get a super crisp one and those who enjoy their Dosa soft can spread it out a little thick.

Ingredients :

  • 200 gms Moong Dal
  • 200 gms Chana Dal
  • 200 gms Urad Dal
  • 1 heaped tbsp Methi/Fenugreek seeds
  • Salt.
  • Oil/Ghee to drizzle over Dosa


Wash and soak the Dals and the Methi together for four hours. Grind to a smooth batter in the wet grinder for half an hour adding a little water at a time. Those using the blender or liquidiser just need to blend it to a smooth batter adding enough water so that the blades can run smoothly. Do not overload the blender. Blend it in batches. Remove. Add salt. Mix thoroughly. Heat a skillet/Tava. Pour a ladleful of batter and spread it in concentric circles to an eight inch diameter sized circle. Drizzle with oil or ghee. Roast to a golden brown. Flip. Roast on the other side too. Serve hot with Chutney of choice. The recipe to the chutney can be found under the catagory of Chutney of this website.
