Kheema Dosa

We bloggers are kick-starting another month long marathon today and we have a wonderful theme this month. We will be posting protein rich dishes. I have decided to take sub themes every week. So the first week I am posting recipes with beef as the major participant.

Beef is the culinary name for meat from cattle, particularly skeletal muscle. Humans have been eating beef since prehistoric times. Beef is a source of high-quality protein and essential nutrients. Though I don't eat beef, people at home are big fan of beef. So I keep innovating new dishes so as to make the dishes interesting for them.

The idea of making a kheema dosa was copied from one of the recipes served in Anjappar restaurants. They serve kheema dosa where the kheema is made from mutton (goat meat). I have made the recipe from my understanding of the taste, i didn't surf the internet to find a recipe. People at home loved it and now this has become a dinner recipe atleast once in 2 weeks.


Dosa batter - 2 cups
Cooked beef - 1 cup
Eggs - 2
Oil – 2 tblspn
Onion – 1 large chopped finely
Green Chillies – 2 chopped finely
Curry leaves – 1 sprig

Coriander Powder / Malli Podi – 1 tblspn
Turmeric Powder / Manjal Podi – 1 tsp

Kheema dosa is ready!! No side dish is needed to eat this..


Don't grind the beef; just pulse it.
Kheema can be made with any meat or with soya chunks also.

  1. Non vegetarian food is ample of protein and i am sure this keema dosa must have been a hit . We always substitute this with soy granules .

  2. Nice looking kheema dosa. As soon as I saw the recipe I have started thinking of paneer with the recipe.

  3. Like Vaishali mentioned, non veg category has so many protein rich options. Am sure the same can be made with pander and soya..

  4. Like Vaishali n Gayatri mentioned I will prefer to use paneer.

  5. Anjappar restaurant reminds me of my Chennai days where my colleagues were huge fans of the restaurant. I usually make a soya kheema with dosa or as a sandwich. Hope your family loved all this effort by you!

  12. During my daughter's wedding we decided to take our early guests to an Anjappar restaurant in Bangalore. Everyone could order what they wanted, veg or no veg. We were 40 people and none of them complained about the food. They all loved it. Meat is definitely a great source of protein and its so satisfying when the family enjoyed a dish you've prepared for the first time.
