You can enjoy it plain,
Or jazz it up…

My daughter’s ‘Rava dosa style’….with a sprinkling of onions chopped dhania, green chillies and spicy podi!

You can even make small mini uttapams for kids lunch boxes… Any which way, they are sure to be a huge hit!

I find it difficult to choose which one I like best…they are all so delicious!! 🙂

Soak I cup udad dal, 2 cups dalia and 1 cup rice along with a tsp of methi dana overnight.
Grind to a smooth thick paste

Ferment overnight

Stir the batter, add water if needed to make a spreadable batter. adjust salt if needed.

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 fresh coconut chutney!


Note: Here is the pan I use to make my Dosas/Chilas

    Hey Ruchi,
    What type of rice did you use? Long grain like basmati, short grain like poni/sona masuri, or parboiled?

      Hi Ruchi,

      Should we add salt before keeping it for fermentation. Will this be better.

    Hi! How do I use roasted chana dal as daliya? Should I just dry roast some chana dal and soak it? Can I use wheat daliya for this recipe?

      This recipe uses wheat dalia or cracked wheat NOT roasted Chana dal
