Bread dosa recipe with step by step photos – quick and instant recipe of preparing tasty bread dosa.

instant bread dosa recipe

Bread dosa recipe had been requested by some readers. so adding the recipe now. The first time I had made bread dosa was almost 7 years back and I do make it rarely once in a while. Its one of the easiest dosa one can make. though I always prefer the ground fermented dosa batter as nothing beats the taste and texture of dosas made the traditional way. But at times one is looking for quick and easy breakfast solutions, so these instant recipes come in handy.

I have already shared many instant dosa recipes like Rava dosa, Oats dosa and Instant. you can also check this Instant idli mix and Instant dosa mix recipe.

The taste of bread dosa is similar to Wheat dosa if you use whole wheat bread. If you use white bread, the taste is similar to maida dosa. For this post, I have used whole wheat bread. I have added tempering in the dosa batter which adds lot of flavor to the dosa.

Serve bread dosa with coconut chutney. You can also serve this dosa with potato masala and coconut chutney.

  1. Hi.
    Thanks for this wonderful receipe. It came out awesome. When I made d first dosa it didn’t come out well as d batter was quiet thick n then adding more of water made my dosas perfect.
    One question
    U have mentioned serving 3. That means 6 dosas, isn’t it?5 stars

  2. Hello, I like your recipe , please Let me know can I use suji that is semolina instead of rice flour? One more question, is there any problem if I don’t want to add curd

    1. you can use suji. but you may need to add some more water as sooji absorbs more water. an acidic ingredient is required for leavening, so you can add 1 to 2 tablespoons lemon juice instead of curd.

    1. hanna, you can make the batter the previous day. but refrigerate the batter. add eno salt or baking soda just before preparing dosas.

  3. Hello! I like your recipes a lot. I tried this instant bread dosa today. The dosa became very soft and I was unable to spread it but the taste was good. Can you please tell me what went wrong?4 stars

    1. anmol, spreading the bread dosa batter is a bit tricky. the pan should have less heat, meaning the flame should be very low to low. then only the batter can be spread easily. on a hot pan, the batter breaks while spreading. if using a cast iron pan, the sprinkle some water on the pan to bring the temperature down. if using non stick, then lift the pan for some seconds and then place it back on the flame.
