Wheat dosa

I am posting another dosa recipe that can be packed for kids lunch box. I have already posted a recipe of stuffed wheat dosa but this cannot be packed for kids lunch box since it needs to be eaten little hot. Often when I get up late or in case of days wherein we have just returned from a long journey, I pack this wheat dosa along with onion-tomato chutney for lunchbox. This recipe is also easy to make.


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

To temper:

Oil - 1 tspn - 5 grams
Mustard - 1 tspn - 5 grams
urad dal - 1/2 t spn - 3 grams
Ginger (finely chopped) - 1 tsp
Curry leaves - few


  • Mix the wheat flour and salt. Add curd first and then water and make it into a batter similar to that of dosa batter consistency.
  • In a kadai, pour oil, add the mustard seeds. Once mustard splutters, add the urad dal and chopped ginger. Fry until urad dal turns light pink and finally add the curry leaves - 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.
Serve with an interesting chutney of your choice.

Some chutney accompaniments to this dosa is given below.


  • Instead of curd, a pinch of baking soda can be added.
  • Cover and cook to make the dosas soft.
