  • Rice flour - 1/4 cup
  • Maida - 1 tbsp optional
  • Onion - 1 medium, finely chopped
  • Pepper powder - 1/2 tsp adjust according to your taste
  • Salt - 1 tsp

  • Water - Around 1 cup + 3 tbsp
  • Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
  • Asofetida - generous pinch


  • In a bowl add all flours and salt; mix well. Add butter milk and water, mix well without lumps. Batter should be thinner than the regular dosai batter consistency
  • Add all the other ingredients listed except oil and combine well. Keep the batter aside for 10 - 15 minutes
  • In medium flame, heat a non stick/ iron dosai pan. Check for the batter consistency if it has become thick drizzle 1/2 tablespoon of water
  • Once the pan becomes hot, take a ladle full of batter and make a outer circle, because the batter is thin it will be spread in the middle. If required fill small portion of batter in between. Drizzle oil and cook on side, after it is cooked carefully flip the other side. Instant wheat dosa is ready, serve it with chutney/sambar/thokku

  1. If you prefer crispy dosa increase the rice flour proportion. Equal about of wheat flour and rice flour can also be used. Adjust the water accordingly
  2. If you have leftover sour dosa batter add just the wheat flour and make dosa. Rice flour can be skipped in this way
  3. Maida can be avoided in the dosa batter. I have tried godhumai dosai with/without maida
  4. Instant dosai taste great if consumed immediately
  5. Resting the batter for a longtime might change the batter consistency to be thick. Drizzle few tablespoon of water in that case
  6. In low flame dosai can also be cooked for crispy texture
  7. Mustard seeds, urad dal, cumin seeds, green chilli, curry leaves can be tempered and onion can be saut├ęd and added to the batter. My mom does this way. I am bit sluggish so I avoid that step
  8. Onion can be skipped and no onion version dosai can also be prepared
  9. Usually finely chopped green chilli and ginger are added, as I give this dosai to my toddler I add pepper powder instead
  10. took 1 tablespoon and 1 teaspoon of thick curd and added 3 tablespoon of water for buttermilk. You can also use store stroufht buttermilk
