Wheat Dosa with Veg. Sambar  

Monday, March 9, 2009

I got the idea and recipe for wheat dosa from my mother-in-law when Sriram wanted something with less carbohydrates and less-fat. So here goes the recipe for Wheat Dosa:


Wheat flour - 1 cup

Dosa batter (or) Rice flour - 1 cup (Dosa batter helps to put dosa on the tawa easily, even if its rice flour, it shouldn't be a problem with consistent water)

Onion - 1/2
Green chilli - 1
Curry leaves - 7


1. In a mixing bowl, add wheat flour, dosa batter (or) rice flour with 1 cup of water and salt and mix well.

2. In a separate pan, heat oil and add curry leaves, chopped onion and green chilli and fry till the onion turns golden brown.

3. Then add the fried onion to the batter. Heat a large pan and pour 1/2 cup of the batter to the tawa and spread it around. Sprinkle 1 tsp of oil on the dosa.

4. After a couple of minutes, flip over the dosa and fry the other side too.

5. Now the wheat dosa is ready to be served.

Wheat dosa is my entry to the event JFI:Wheat hosted by Roma.

Ingredients for Vegetable Sambar:

Thor daal - 1 cup
Vegetables (desired, cut) - 1 cup
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Tomato - 1
Onion - 1/2
Channa daal - 1 tsp
Urad daal - 1 tsp
Green chilli - 1
Jeera (cumin) seeds - 1 tsp
Coconut (grated) - 1/4 cup
Mustard seeds - 1/4 tsp
Curry leaves - 5


1. Pressure cook thor daal and cut vegetables along with 1 cup of water and a pinch of turmeric powder.

2. Heat oil in a pan and fry onion and tomato till tomato dissolves and mashed up and keep aside.

3. Again heat oil in a pan and add channa daal, urad daal, green chilli and cumin seeds and fry for a few seconds.

4. Remove from heat and grind it nicely with grated coconut and enough water.

5. Now add the onion-tomato mix and the ground mix to the thor daal & vegetables.

6. Season it with mustard seeds and curry leaves. Boil the sambar for a few minutes and remove from heat.

7. Now the sambar is ready to be served with wheat dosa, dosa or idli. Goes well with rice too.

And now comes the special part! My lovely friends have showered me with the following awards. Dears, thanks for your lovely awards, I feel really delighted to receive them from you.
