Being fans of fermented dosa, there are some instant dosa recipes too that we like e.g. Instant dosaRava dosa, Oats dosa etc. This instant atta dosa is also a favorite. It is very easy to prepare. You just need to mix all the ingredients and allow the batter to sit for 30 minutes. Later you can make the dosas.

When the wheat dosa batter is resting, you can prepare coconut chutney. You can also prepare the batter overnight and refrigerate, so that in the morning you can quickly prepare breakfast.

The ease of this recipe makes it a good option for breakfast or even for brunch or a quick snack. In the recipe, the batter is prepared with water. To get a slightly sour taste, I have added lemon juice. You can also use buttermilk instead of water to make the batter.

The recipe method I am sharing is to Make a crisp version of wheat dosa. we are not so fond of the soft version, as they taste more like chapatis. But the crisp version does not taste like chapatis. However, you do get the taste of atta in the dosa.

Tips to get crispness in wheat dosa

  1. The tawa has to be hot before you pour the batter or else you won’t get the net effect.
  2. Pour the batter a little from a height, so that you get the net effect.
  3. The batter has to be of thin flowing consistency.
  4. Whole wheat dosa takes a longer time to cook. So only when the base is crisp and golden, then flip.
  5. Use a well-seasoned iron/cast iron pan to make these dosas or use a thick bottomed non-stick pan.

Always add the herbs and spices in the batter. This way the godhuma dosa tastes better than the plain ones. These dosa have to be served hot. You can serve wheat dosa with idli podi or with coconut chutney. The leftover batter can be refrigerated for a day.

How to make wheat dosa

1. Take 1 cup whole wheat flour/Atta and ¼ cup rice flour in a mixing bowl.

2. Add the following ingredients- ¼ cup sliced shallots or ¼ cup chopped onions, 1 teaspoon chopped curry leaves, ½ teaspoon of finely chopped ginger, ½ teaspoon cumin seeds and pinch of hing.

3. Add 2.5 cups water or as required. Depending on the quality of atta, you can add less or more water. The batter has to be flowing and thin. If the batter looks thick or has a medium consistency, then add more water. If the batter looks very thin and runny, then add some rice flour.

4. Mix very well. There can be fine lumps of the atta like wet sand types, so break these while mixing. You can use your hands also to mix the batter. Even a wired whisk can be used.

16. Once the base becomes golden or crisp, then flip and cook the other side of godhuma dosa. Usually, I cook both sides. But you can just cook the base and when the top is also cooked, fold the godhuma dosa and serve.

  1. Tried the dosa today..it was yummy…but was not crisp..should the batter be thick or watery?

    1. the batter is on the thinner side. its not thick. the consistency is like rava dosa batter. when you pour the batter, pour it from a certain height. the tawa should be hot. if the tawa is not hot, the netted effect won’t be there and the dosa also won’t become crisp. if the batter is even of medium consistency, then too the dosa will not be crisp. it will be soft. depending on the quality of atta, less or more water will be required.
