Wheat Dosa or Gothambu Dosa

We prefer light dinners at night. Usually we go for items like Dosa, Idli, Chappathi, Paratha or Upma for dinner. Ideally we would like to have chappathis or parathas daily as dinner, but the time constraints force us to go for something that can be easily prepared. I think Dosas are one of the most easiest dinner option. We like to make Dosas not only from rice flour, but from wheat flour as well. Here is the recipe for my wheat flour Dosas. Can be prepared in a jiffy and one of the healthiest dinner option available. Just needs to make sure that less oil is used. Do not pour oil in and around the dosas. Oil should be used just for greasing the Tawa and that too a very little amount. 

Wheat Dosa or Gothambu Dosa:

Prep Time : 10 min
Cook Time: 15 min
Total Time: 25 min


2 cups Wheat Flour (Chappathi Atta)  - Makes around 7 - 9 Dosas depending on the size.


Step 1: Mix wheat flour and salt well in a vessel. 
Step 2: Add water slowly and mix well. Make a batter of loose consistency. Make sure that no lumps are formed in the batter. 

Here's my batter with out any lumps

Method of Preparing:

Step 1:

Heat a Tawa. Grease it with little oil using a tissue paper or cloth.  

Step 2:

When the Tawa becomes hot, pour the batter in a circle in the tawa. Make small circles on it using ladle so that the batter spreads out in the tava. 

Step 3:

First let one side cook completely. 

Then turn to the other side and let it cook. 

Once that is done , transfer to a plate. 

Grease the tava using a tissue paper or cloth and repeat step3 2 and 3, till the batter is over.

Serve hot with chutney or chamanthi podi. I like the dosas a bit crisp. So I cook for a little longer on both sides so that dark brown spots appear.
