Broken Wheat Dosa Recipe-Dalia Dosa

 Prep Time : 20 mins (excluding soaking time)
 Cook Time : 5 mins (less than 5 min per dosa)
 Yields: 10-12 Dosas
 Recipe CategoryBreakfast-Healthy-Broken wheat
 Recipe CuisineSouth Indian

   Ingredients needed

   Broken wheat rava/dalia - 1 cup
   Rice - 1/2 cup (any rice)
   Whole urad dal (skinned) - 1/2 cup
   Fenugreek seeds/vendhayam - 1/2 tsp
   Salt as needed
   Sesame seed oil for making dosas


Wash and soak rice, urad dal (I used whole urad dal without skin), fenugreek seeds together for 6-7 hours or overnight. Soak broken wheat rava for 4-5 hours.

Grind everything together to a smooth batter in a wet grinder adding water from time to time. If using mixie, grind rice, fenugreek seeds and dal separately and samba godhumai ravai separately and mix together both the batter.

Add needed salt, mix the batter well with your hands and leave it to ferment for another 6 hours.


Heat a tawa, once it is hot, pour a ladle of batter and spread it in a circular motion.

Drizzle a tsp of oil around the dosa.

Once the corners starts to lift up, flip over the dosa to the other side.

Drizzle another 1/4 tsp of oil. Once the dosa is cooked, remove from tawa and serve immediately.

Repeat the same process for the rest of the batter.

Serve with sambar or any chutney of your choice. I love it with hotel sambar.

Note - Leftover batter can be refrigerated for a day or two. Use the batter within 2 days.
