Instant dosa made from home made Dosa mix powder

In this age of instant and ready to eat foods, here comes a Home made Dosa mix powder. You can make a large batch of this powder and when in a hurry or when having guests, can make this Dosa instantly. I thank my friend dear Vidya Nayak for having shared this recipe. Recipe link to the coconut chutney is given below.


1/2 cup Urad dal/ split black gram

1.5 cups of raw rice

1 tsp Methi/Fenugreek seeds

2 tbsps Toovar Dal/ split pigeon peas

2 tbsps Chana Dal/ Split Bengal gram

A large fistful of Poha/ flattened rice ( thin variety)

2 tbsps Rava/ Semolina

Other ingredients required:

2 tsps Sugar


Oil or ghee to roast the dosa.


Dry roast the above mentioned ingredients one by one on a gentle flame till they become extremely hot. See to it that they don’t change colour. Allow to cool thoroughly and grind them to a very fine powder.

Drop the powder into a container. Gently add enough water, stirring all the time to make a batter of pouring consistency. You can add more water if required before making the dosa if you find the batter too thick. Add salt. Keep aside for eight hours.

Whisk the batter well the next morning. Add two teaspoons of sugar. Mix well and pour a ladleful of the batter onto a hot tava/ skillet. Spread it thinly into a circle as large as required. Drizzle with ghee or oil. Roast to a golden brown. Flip. Roast on the other side as well. Serve hot with Chutney of your choice.

Note: This dosa can be made instantly too. Just add a tsp of Eno fruit salt to the batter, whisk well and make Dosas.
