Bread Dosa


Bread dosa…. Sounds strange?  What is it made of ! Definitely not made out of bread… A very simple dosa recipe … comes close to the “set dosa” you get in darshinis. The batter after fermentation looks like fermented bread dough (due to yeast).

Ingredients: Makes 12 dosas

  1. Dosa Akki –  Soaked for 8 hours -2 Cups
  2. Medium thick rice flakes – Medium avalakki – 1 Cup
  3. Salt – To taste
  4. Oil – 1 Tbsp


  1. Grind the rice into a fine paste.
  2. Wash the rice flakes with water and strain the water.
  3. Add this to the rice paste.
  4. Grind this again with water.
  5. Add salt and mix well.
  6. Let the mixture ferment for 8 hours.
  7. Mix the batter after fermentation.
  8. Adjust the batter consistency. Add water if required.
  9. Heat a non stick tawa.
  10. Pour a ladle of dosa batter and spread into a thick dosa.
  11. Close a lid and let the dosa cook.
  12. Remove when done.

To serve:

  1. Serve hot with coconut chutney.
  2. Wrap the dosa in a plantain leaf if available…. Keeps the dosa moist and warm and makes it tasty too 🙂

Culinary Secrets:

  1. Wash and soak the rice in the morning.
  2. Prepare the batter late in the evening.
  3. Keep the batter overnight to make hot dosas in the morning.
  4. Like “neer dosa“, bread dosa also remains white in colour.
  5. Batter should be of medium-thick consistency.
