Bread Dosa

bread dosa

My friends used to tease me saying give anything to Shilpa & she will make dosa out of it ;). So I thought twice before even trying this, bcos I did not want them to laugh on me. But this came out well. I saw this in some TV show & modified a little.

Bread slices 4
Rice flour 1 cup
Sooji(Rava) 1/2 cup
Curd 1 cup
Chilli powder 1/2 tea spn
Mustard seeds 1/2 tea spn
Urad daal 1/2 tea spn
Curry leaves 3-4
Ginger cut into small pieces 1/2 tea spn
Onion 1
Soak bread in water & squeze out the water. Grind wirh rice flour, sooji, curd and salt. Add chilli powder to this batter. Add enough water to help in grinding.
Heat half tea spn oil and fry mustard seeds, urad daal, curry leaves, ginger. Add finely chopped onion and fry till onions turn slightly brownish. Add this to the above batter.
Add sufficient water to bring it to dosa consistency. Make dosa. (Dosa should be fried till it becomes brownish from both sides).
Serve hot with coconut chutney.

Serves : 2
Preparation time : 30min

    Does the bread have to be fresh? I hope not, because I’ve got some stale bread which I’m going to try in this recipe :) Nice blog, by the way!

    Hi shilpa,

    Thanks a lot for your wonderful recipe. i just wanted to know that can i keep this batter in fridge and use for a week will that be good….. sorry for my silly question.

    • Shilpa January 21, 2010, 8:25 am

      I don’t recommend keeping the batter for 1 week. I have kept it for max 1 day in fridge.

    hi shilpa,
    i ‘ ve been trying many of ur recipes, and they have come out really well. Thanks for this gr8 sight. Came across this recipe and found it very easy to make. Making this for dinner tonight , its still in the tawa. but i am facing a problem. the dosas are breaking and not turning crisp . they are remaining soft./ where did i go wrong? please help me out.

    thanking you . bi

    • Shilpa June 9, 2013, 3:47 pm

      You can try increasing the amount of rice flour. That should help in getting the dosas crispy

  • sanjana June 20, 2013, 5:55 am

    Hi Shilpa.

    I am new to cooking, so have been trying ur recipes, i just have one request can u just mention the amount of water to be added for dosas, it will be of great hel. i always end up adding more or less.

    can u pls suggest me some breakfast receipe which is quick n easy and i can prepare in the night and just heat in morning for breakfast as my son is 2 years old and he goes to playhome and my husband stays far off and he visits us in the weekend. i have to manage him alone. My son gets up by 6 and i cant sit in the kitchen n take long time cooking.

    Please do help me with time managemetn and easy cooking.

    waiting for your help

    • Shilpa June 21, 2013, 6:26 am

      - You can make idlis, pohas previous day and heat them up in the morning.
      – You can also keep the upma mix ready at night with all spices, roasted rava etc. Just add water and cook in the morning.
      – Different kinds of sandwiches can be made easily. Just keep the stuffing ready at night.

  • Lakshmi September 26, 2013, 7:38 am

    Great blog. If i am searching for any recipe I first come to this blog only and irrespective of what I search I find it here. So you understand how well you are doing. Thanks

    • Shilpa September 26, 2013, 9:00 am

      Thanks Lakshmi for kind words

  • Rose October 6, 2013, 4:23 am

    Hello Shilpa,

    A quick doubt; the rava used here, is it Uppuma rava or Idli rava? Recently I came to know that there are 2 kinds of rava and am confused what to use for what :)

    • Shilpa October 6, 2013, 12:55 pm

      It is usually Upma rava unless otherwise specifically mentioned.
