Brown Rice Dosa


November 1, 2015


Experimented with using brown rice to make Dosa batter…never going back to using white rice ever again!!

Soak 1 cup udad dal, 1 tbsp Chana dal, 1 tbsp moong dal, 2 cups brown rice and 1 tsp methi dana overnight.

Grind into a smooth thick paste and add some salt to taste.

Ferment overnight.
Stir the batter, adjusting water and salt to make a thin spreadable batter.


Spread out on hot nonstick pan like any regular dosa, drizzle a few drops of oil, cook for 1-2 minutes on medium high heat

Roll and serve hot with hot Sambhar & fresh coconut chutney!


And how about trying to use the brown Rice dosa batter to make something fun and nutritous for the kids….I call it DOSIZZAS!!

    Hi Ruchi,

    Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe. I have lots of cooked brown rice at home and was wondering if I can use that instead of uncooked brown rice.

    Looking forward to your reply.

      I’ve never tried using cooked rice….however…it is an interesting idea worth exploring. I would suggest soaking udad dal for 2-3 hours. Then grinding it along with the cooked brown rice to prepare the batter….leave to ferment….and see what happens!

    Hi Ruchi, should I soak all the ingredients together in one container or separately? Thanks, Swati
