Dosa: Delicious South Indian Crepes

Dosa are tasty South Indian crepes which are made from rice and lentils. They can be stuffed with vegetables, meats and sauces making them great for breakfast and dinner.


  • 1 cup parboiled rice
  • 1/4 cup white urad dal (lentils)
  • 1/2 tsp. methi (fenugreek) seeds
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 10-12 tsps. ghee or oil as preferred
  • water for grinding

Wash the rice and dal together. Add plenty of water and the methi seeds. Allow to soak for 7-8 hours or overnight and then grind to a paste. Add baking soda and salt and mix well. Keep it aside in a warm place for 8-10 hours.

The consistency of the batter should be thick enough to thickly coat a spoon when dipped. Heat an iron griddle or non-stick frying pan. Pour a spoonful of batter in the centre, spread with the back of the spoon to a thin round. Pour a teaspoon of ghee or oil over it. Remove with spatula when crisp.

Serve hot with coconut chutney, sambar (vegetable stew), or a spicy curry.
