Instant Wheat flour dosa

                           “Dosas with wheat flour??”, I wondered aloud while recipe hunting for breakfast dishes. This was exactly 4 years back when I was just a beginner at cooking (Newly married- “The way to his heart is through his stomach” phase).. At my place, mom used wheat flour only to make chapatis.. So this idea was quite new and the excited me tried it soon.. The recipe then was quite simple.. Mix in wheat flour, salt and water.. Make dosas.. But both of us did not find it tasty enough and it became once-in-a-blue-moon dish..

                           As time passed and I learnt many more recipes, this dosa took a new and delicious form.. My mom makes a dosa named Maida pitta phanna polo (Seasoned maida dosa).. Even though the dosa tastes yummy, the health quotient in it is zero as it is completely made of all purpose flour.. So, what is the alternative? This seasoned wheat flour dosa!

Tastes amazing, I guarantee you.. My 10 month old loves it and gobbles up one whole dosa (In her genes, I guess!).. She is a true foodie just like us and loves eating (Touch wood!).. Planning to try a lot more recipes just for her and hope to continue blogging about it too.. As of now, do try this delicious dosa and you are sure to love it.. Happy and Healthy cooking!

Health Benefits of Wheat: Since they are low in fat and high on fiber, they have been linked to reduce weight, the risks of stroke, type 2 diabetes, certain cancers and other health problems.. Substitute refined flour with whole wheat in your diet and see the positive health changes you will undergo…

RECIPE: {Makes around 10 to 12 thin dosas}

2 Cups Whole wheat flour/ Atta
1/2 Cup Rice flour
1/4 Cup freshly grated Coconut (Optional)
2 tsp Red chilli powder or to taste
5 Cups water (Approx. to make the batter)
Salt to taste

For seasoning:
2 tsp Oil
1 tsp Mustard seeds
1 tsp Cumin seeds/ Jeera
A sprig of Curry leaves

1. Take wheat flour, rice flour, red chilli powder and salt in a bowl..

2. Add 5 cups water and whisk well to remove any lumps..

3. Add coconut and mix well..

4. Prepare seasoning by heating oil, spluttering mustard seeds and adding cumin seeds along with curry leaves.. Pour this seasoning over the batter..

5. Mix well..
Note: The batter should be thinner than regular dosa batter..
6. Heat a dosa griddle (should be flat base)  and maintain it on high flame..
7. Now mix in the batter using the ladle and pour the batter over the pan..
8. If the batter is thin enough and the pan is hot, then you will get the dosa resembling this..

Note: No need to cover this dosa.. I dont oil the dosa but you can oil the edges of the dosa if needed..

9. Once the edges turn brown and the top portion looks cooked, remove the dosa from the pan..

10. Repeat the same with the rest of batter.. Mix well each time before pouring the batter..
Enjoy these crispy dosas with the chutney of your choice!

Note: I sometimes add chopped onions, coriander leaves and green chillies in the batter. These add to the flavors of this delicious dosa.
