Coconut stuffed wheat dosa | a quick snack with grated coconut and sugar

This is my first port for the Blogging Marathon. I am participating in BM#38. But I guess I started at the wrong time. There was no internet connectivity and hence I missed the first day. I should actually be publishing this post on 3rd March but alas I am posting on 4th March. Anyways I will compensate by pusblishing 2 recipes today. And My first choice was kids recipes. Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#38
So here goes my first recipe for the Blogging Marathon series.

H introduced me to this recipe. And this is a big hit among kids mainly because it is sweet. A quick to make evening snack and most of the ingredients you would find at home!!! grated coconut, sugar, wheat flour.... And the snack is ready in 10 minutes...


Wheat Flour - 1 cup - 125 grams
Water - 3/4 cup
Egg - 1
salt - to taste

Grated Coconut - 1/2 cup - 50 grams
Sugar - 1/4 cup - 30 grams
Cardamom powder - 1 tspn - 5 grams

To Temper:
Oil - 1 tspn - 5 grams
Mustard - 1 tspn - 5 grams
urad dal - 1/2 t spn - 3 grams

Coriander leaves - few


  • Mix the wheat flour and salt. Add water and make it into a batter similar to that of dosa batter consistency.
  • Beat one egg and add this to the batter and mix well. This makes the dosas very soft. For vegetarian people this step can be avoided. Instead add a pinch of baking soda.
  • Chop the coriander leaves and add this to the batter. Mix well
  • For the stuffing - just mix the grated coconut, sugar and cardamom powder and keep it ready.
  • In a kadai, pour oil, add the mustard seeds. Once mustard splutters, add the urad dal. Fry until urad dal turns light pink - add this to the batter and mix well.
  • Heat a dosa pan. Make a thin dosa of the batter. Cover and cook for 2-3 minutes. 
  • Put 2 spoons of the stuffing in the middle as shown in the below picture.

  • Fold the dosa from both sides and press with the ladle so that the dosa seals itself.
  • Cook for another one minute.

Serve hot!!!!

A quick and healthy snack is ready!!!!

We sometimes have this for a late breakfast on weekends since this is very easy to prepare :-) and filling.
