i chanced upon this poha dosa recipe a few years ago in chandra padmanabhan’s cookbook: “simply south : traditional vegetarian cooking”. since then i have been making these poha dosas often.

this poha dosa recipe is an andhra specialty and also known as atukula dosa. other names are aval dosa. in fact i like these dosas so much that i usually pair them with tea or coffee. when i made the dosas this time, i served poha dosa with red amaranth sambar and sesame coconut chutney.

i make a lot of recipes with poha for breakfast or evening snacks like:

the method to make poha dosas is slightly different than the one for regular dosa. here the rice and poha are soaked in buttermilk. then ground and fermented for 4 to 5 hours.

while cooking these poha dosas you can cook one side or both sides. poha dosas makes for an excellent weekend or sunday breakfast or brunch.

  1. Tried this week. We as a family enjoyed the Poha Dosa!! Thank You

    • Welcome Mythili

  2. Hi! Dasanna im lil bit confused . U have written fr fermentation u have to keep the batter fr 4 to 5 hours. But if i keep the batter overnight will the poha batter b more sour. Pls reply

    • asha, for poha dosa the batter can be kept for 4 to 5 hours. you can also keep overnight. if you keep the batter overnight it wont be sour. after 4 to 5 hours of fermentation, the batter does not have the typical sour aroma. since curd is added, there will be some sourness, but since the fermentation time is less, there will be some sweetness in the dosa. but if you keep for overnight, the batter does not become sour. also fermentation depends on the temperature. since winters are going on, you can keep the batter overnight or for some more hours.

  3. Hi ,I have a doubt …we must need to use baking soda or we can skip it…bcoz I don’t want to use baking soda…

    If I will not use soda ,the dosa will come perfectly… Plzz give fast reply…I am waiting…

    • baking soda makes the dosa more softer and porous. if you want you can skip also.
