Hello everyone

Who don't like dosa? I love all South Indian delicacies including crisp dosa. But sometime we instantly have craving for it but couldn't have it due to long process of soaking, grinding , fermenting and then we can have it after a long wait of whole one day. So generally we head towards restaurant to satisfy our instant cravings. So I thought why not to try some healthy , quick yet equally yummy substitute of this traditional delicacy. As a result here is this super crisp, yummy , healthy and quickest dosa for you to relish . It took maximum half an hour from soaking to serving. Even kids too love this quick version. Those who love dosa but can't handle urad dal heaviness can also enjoy these lite and healthy dosas. Now no more waiting for fermentation to enjoy your favorite meal.
Stepwise recipe is given below, hope you all will definitely give it a try and I bet , you will fall in love with this quick version.


Serves: 3-4
Time: 30 mins ( max)


2 cup split moong dal
1/2 cup rice powder
2-3 green chilies
1/2 tsp ginger garlic paste
Salt to taste


Soak moong dal in hot water for 10-15 mins. Then add all ingredients together in a grinder and make a smooth paste using required water . Grind at least for 4-5 mins so that you can see small bubbles in batter. 

Batter should be of pouring consistency but not runny. It should be of consistency like regular dosa batter. Now your batter is ready to make dosa.

Take a non stick dosa tawa, heat it on medium flame. Grease it lightly and wipe with tissue or you can make dosa on it without greasing too. Pour  ladle full of batter in center and spread it in circular motion outwards. Its crispness depends on how thin you spread it. Let it cook till brown patches are visible. 

Then fold it as you like and serve hot with any chutney or sauce of your choice. Your super quick crisp dosa is ready.

*If you have enough time in hand then can also soak moong dal in normal water for 1/2 hr then grind.
You can also make stuffed dosa by adding stuffing of your choice in it.

**If you are making it on normal iron tawa then try to make 1-2 parathas on it before making dosa. After making each dosa wipe tawa with a piece of onion. It will act as non stick coating on iron tawa😁 and you will get nice clean and crisp dosas every time. 

**Always keep heat medium, as at lower heat your dosa can't be spread nicely and on too hot tawa you will get burnt dosa. So to get nice crisp and golden dosa , keep medium heat. If it become too hot , sprinkle some water to lower its temp.

This is easiest and quickest dosa I ever made. Hope you all will love it too and please pour your valuable comments and suggestions , they meant a lot.

Happy cooking....
