Set Dosa Recipe Card


Hindi: chawal
How many times have we thought rice is a blessing? We use it for holy purposes but we also can pressure up a quick pulao or khichdi when hunger pangs are drumming away! This is one grain that is about 98% percent digestible. In India we are familiar with Basmati, Patna or brown rice but it is also available as Italian Rice and Glutinous Rice which is popular in Chinese and Japanese cuisines.

Prep Time : 8-10 hour

Cook time : 31-40 minutes

Serve : 4

Level Of Cooking : Moderate

Taste : Mild

Ingredients for Set Dosa Recipe

  • Rice 2 cups

  • Pressed Rice 1 cup

  • Fenugreek seeds (methi dana) 1/2 teaspoon

  • 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.
