Wheat Flour Dosa (Ganva Polo)

wheat flour-rice flour dosa

Lately, I have been very busy. Busy work days, busy evenings trying to keep a toddler entertained and then if I still have any energy left, I work from home. I have missed updating this place. Today I realized that it has been more than 2 weeks since I posted here. So I thought I have to post something, before I totally lost the touch.

This dosa is inspired by my aayi’s ganva polo (wheat flour dosa). She makes it for dinner on Panchami – when my parents don’t eat rice for dinner and make something with wheat. V is a big fan of ganva polo and keeps asking for it. I recently started making it regularly since Ishaan also enjoys it. I changed the traditional recipe to add rice flour and a seasoning to it.

Ingredients:
1 cup wheat flour
2 tbl spns rice flour (optional)
2 tbl spns fresh/frozen coconut
Oil
Salt

Seasoning (optional):
1/2 tea spn mustard seeds
4-5 curry leaves

Method:
Mix wheat flour, rice flour, coconut, salt and water. Make it quite watery.
Heat oil add mustard seeds, curry leaves. Add the seasoning to the batter.
Heat tava and spread dosa. Cook from both sides. Serve hot.

Serves : 2-3
Preparation time : 20mins

Texture looks like rava dosa.. For seasoning, you can add red chilles and for masala dosa color u can add one table spoon of sugar.. Website is interesting..

I tried this dosa last saturday and it was really good. since the batter was thin i made an outer circle and then gradually filled inside. thank you so much.
