If you don’t have the time but yearn to eat something different for breakfast, try this quick dosa recipe to put some zing into your mornings.

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 5 min
Serves: 2-3


  • 1 cup gram flour (besan)
  • 2 cups maida
  • Water for batter
  • Oil or ghee to drizzle
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 chopped green chillies
  • Few chopped coriander leaves
  • Few chopped curry leaves


Mix both flours by sieving with salt. Add water gradually, making not too thin batter, which should coat the back of the spoon.

Mix curry leaves, green chillies, coriander with the batter.

Heat a thick dosa griddle or non-stick flat pan. Pour a ladleful of batter in the centre, spread thinly like a pancake. Drizzle oil on top. Allow the bottom to become golden brown, remove with a sharp edged spatula. Roll or fold and serve hot with chutney.

NOTE: This may require a little more oil than a regular dosa to lift from the pan smoothly.
