I will not say these taste like the regular dosa made from ground rice and lentils. No they do not. They do not have the characteristic sour taste & flavor which is there in the ground dosa version. Still they are good.

These dosas taste more like the crisp dosa which one gets in udupi restaurants. After making dosa this way, my feeling is that this is how they make dosa in restaurants. You will really not complain about these dosas, as they do not take the extra effort that is usually required in making a regular dosa.

Few more quick and easy dosa recipes which you can make at times are:

I used ready made organic raw urad dal flour and rice flour to make these dosas. These flours can be made at home by grinding both rice and urad lentils. Just mix the flour with water and allow to ferment overnight.

These crisp and golden dosa can be served plain with just coconut chutney and vegetable sambar or made into a Masala dosa with the spiced potato stuffing.

How to make No Grind Dosa with urad flour and rice flour

1. Add both the rice flour and urad dal flour into a mixing bowl.

2. Pour water and mix well. I usually use my hands to mix the batter very well and break the lumps. The batter has to be smooth and without any lumps and evenly mixed.

3. Pour the batter from the mixing bowl in another bowl. Cover and allow to ferment at room temperature overnight for 9-10 hours.

4. The consistency of batter the next day. Due to it being cold here, the batter fermented not much. So I kept for an additional 4 hours more. The batter does not triple or double up like the dosa batter made with ground rice and lentils. But there is a faint sour aroma in the batter. A tip is to add 1 tbsp yogurt along with water before fermentation. You can reserve a few teaspoons of the fermented batter and then freeze it. Use it later as a starter to ferment the next batch of dosa.

5. Add salt once the batter is fermented and mix well.

6. Heat an iron griddle or tava. Smear with oil lightly. Take a spoon or ladle with the batter and gently start spreading the dosa in circular rounds. If using non stick pan, then avoid smearing oil on the pan. If the batter is too thick to spread evenly, then just add a few tbsp of water in it.

7. Drizzle oil on the top and sides and let one side cook.

8. When one side is browned, flip and cook the other side of dosa.

  1. Nice idea I’m going to try. One question for dosa batter we are taking raw rice and boiled rice with urad dal and Fenugreek seeds. As you asked rice flour can we mix both rice flour for this batter?

  2. Do you think this recipe would work with millet flour and masoor dal flour? That’s all I have at the moment. Thank you, Didi

    1. it will work. just that it may not ferment as well as this recipe since urad dal flour is not used, but will taste good.
