Sheetal Kamat

My love for set dosa started the very first day i ate it in bangalore. I just love this fluffy thick dosa served in set of three medium sized ones. Finally I did some research for recipe. Most of them were using soda which i didnt want to use. Also found out that they use poha in it. So adapted those ingredients to the my dosa recipe. Outcome was awesome :) Infact I made it like 2 weeks back and before I could click photos, they were over :) And already been asked for repeat. So this week I prepared it again and first thing I did was click the snap :)

Set Dosa
2 Cup Rice
1 Cup Idly Rawa
3/4 Cup Udid Daal
1 Cup Poha
1 Spoon Methi Seeds
Salt to taste

  • Soak Rice, Idly rawa, udid daal and methi seeds seperately in the morning.
  • In the evening soak poha for an hour
  • Grind the rice to fine paste.
  • Mix udid daal and Methi seeds and grind it to fine paste.
  • Grind the idly rawa to form fine paste
  • Grind Poha as well to the paste.
  • Mix all these pastes really well and keep in warm place overnight
  • Next day morning, add salt and water enough to make free flowing consistency. Mix well.
  • Heat tawa on low-medium flame.
  • Sprinkle few drops of oil and pour a cup of batter.
  • When the one side is one, sprinkle couple of drops on top of the dosa and flip it to cook the other side.
  • When the other side too turns light brown, take it out and serve.

This dosa is normally served with mixed vegetable, but i dont like it at all so instead i served it with peanut-curd chutney without using optional items. It went well.

    wow, what made it so porous without Soda?

    I too prefer it over Masala Dosa and Uttapam..
    btw, Rava dosa sometime next :)

  2. I believe it is the fermentation and poha (since thats the main ingredient that differs from the usual ones..)

    You could try adding about 2 tbsp each of toor and split chana daal (harbara) when you put the ingredients for the batter to soak. It adds to the flavour of the dosa and the taste comes out a lot more like Bangalore dosas.

  4. Thanks Deepti,
    I will try that next time :)
