Wheat Dosa

A healthy dosa, which can be made in a jiffy..goes well with normal coconut chutney and best with tomato chutney. I like to play around with the ingredients of this dosa, as the dosa with just wheat flour and water will taste bland. So I spice it up by adding chillies, ginger, onions etc. You can either add them as it is or shallow fry them in oil and add to the batter...either ways its tasty.


Whole wheat flour - 2 cups
Egg - 1 (optional - egg makes the dosa slightly fluffy and tastier)
Salt - 1 tsp , as per taste
Dried red chilly or finely chopped green chilly - 1, as per taste (optional)
Finely chopped ginger - 1 tsp (optional)
Finely chopped small onions - 1 tbsp (optional)
Grated coconut - 1/2 cup (optional)
Water - almost 1 1/2 cups (according to your consistency)
Ghee - just enough to smear on the dosa


1. In the big jar of the mixer, add all the ingredients except ghee and pulse 4-5 times until all of them together form a batter. If needed add more water. (I have figured out that doing it in the mixer saver a lot of time than making the batter with hand).
2. Heat a tawa and when its hot add a ladle of batter and make dosas. Smear ghee on the sides and top. Over turn the dosa and cook the other side too.
3. Serve warm with coconut chutney, tomato chutney or even chutney powder.
