Quick and Instant Dosa with different flours

If your kids are like my kids and prefer dosa to idlis...and will eat any type of dosa you make, then here is one quick and easy Dosa to make, with ingredients from your pantry.

There are few different ways you can make this dosa...one by using leftover batter of idli or dosa, if you know what I mean. Sometimes only so much batter is left that its now enough of anybody, use it up in making this dosa...or just mix up some ravva, besan, maida, rice flour with yogurt, sour one if you have some or add lemon juice or amchoor powder and whip up some fast instant dosas....
Be sure to add some onions, green chillies and curry leaves for some taste and crunch in the dosas...

My kids love it and is a hit in our family....try and I am sure you will like it!


1/2 cup yogurt, sour if possible or add lemon juice or amchoor powder for the soury taste.
1/4 cup besan, chick pea flour
1/4 cup rice flour
1/4 cup maida
1/4 cup sooji

enough water to make it into a dosa type batter
1/2 tsp chilli powder
some chopped onions
chopped green chillies (omit for kids)
chopped curry leaves

Oil for making the dosa


Mix all the ingredients together with a whisk as to no lumps remain.
Add the onions, green chillies, curry leaves and chilli powder along with salt.
Heat the tava for making the dosa. Spread oil in a thin layer.
Make the dosa using the laddle to a round shape. Sprinkle oil all over the dosa.
When one side is brown, flip over to other side.
Serve hot with chutney, pachadi or podi.
