Dosa is a staple at our house. The fridge is always stocked with Idli/Dosa batter and it’s just so convenient to whip up idlis, dosas, uttapams and appams and what not!
Dosa is a savory Indian pancake roasted on a pan to a crisp if that’s how you like it. A crisp ghee roast is our all time favorite.
So traditionally, dosa batter is made at home with (uncooked) boiled rice and urad daal soaked overnight and then ground to a fine batter allowing it time to ferment and rise. However, I believe it does require a lot of practice to get it absolutely right which is why I prefer just buying it off the stores and then I’ll add raagi (finger millet) flour or assured flours to it to increase its nutritional value. For this I did the same.
- On a hot pan, spread the batter with the help of a deep scooped ladle.
- Sprinkle chopped spring onions and veggies of your choice
- Dust the top with some chaat masala (optional)
- Cook on a slow flame until golden brown and crisp
Serve warm with molaga podi (chutney powder that’s douce in sesame oil), coconut chutney or even a yoghurt dip tastes delicious.

Stay tuned for our last day tomorrow, Egg mayo sandwich.
Perhaps it’s too soon to be counting my chicken but the kids were SO peaceful this morning.
My son actually requested to be woken up by 6:15 am so that he could lend a helping hand in making the waffles! The little one too joined in and although in my mind I was in a mad rush to wrap up this DIY breakfast, I kept my cool and got them to stir and mix and rush off for their baths! Phew!
As expected breakfast was a breeze with “thank you mamma” and “I love this mamma” and “I will eat my fruit before I eat this breakfast”, where in God’s name did that come from?!?!?!?! Wherever it came from I was happy to oblige.
So, day 02 was a success and Day 03 promises to be easier because its just cereal. Yay!
