Set Dosa

Main Ingredients






Level Of Cooking



  • Rice
    2 cups
  • Fenugreek seeds (methi dana)
    1/2 teaspoon
  • Pressed rice (poha)
    1 cup
  • Yogurt
    1 cup
  • Salt
    to taste
  • Oil
    as required


Step 1

Wash and soak the rice and fenugreek seeds in four cups of warm water for about two hours. Soak the pressed rice in a little water for about five minutes.

Step 2

Grind the rice and fenugreek seeds along with the pressed rice and salt into a smooth and thick batter. Add the yogurt and salt and mix well. Keep the batter in a warm place to ferment overnight.

Step 3

Heat a tawa and grease it. Pour a ladle of batter and do not spread it. It will set itself into a thick circle. Drizzle a little oil all round and cover.

Step 4

Cook till the underside is done and very light brown. Similarly make more set dosas.

Step 5

Serve hot with chutney or vegetable kurma.

Chef Tip

For added flavour and taste you can grind green chillies and ginger with the rest of the ingredients.
