Servings 10 Dosa


  • 1 cup Jowar/ Sorghum flour
  • 1 cup rice flour
  • 1 Small Onion, finely chopped
  • 2 Green Chilies, very finely chopped
  • 3 tbsp Cilantro, finely chopped
  • To taste salt
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 2 cups water


  • Combine all the ingredients in a mixing bowl, whisk well to form a lump less batter. Batter should be slightly more watery than pancake batter. Cover and set aside for at least 30 minutes.
  • When ready to make dosa, stir the batter well and add more water if the batter looks thick.
  • Heat a tawa/ griddle on medium-high heat for at least 5 minutes. Using a measuring cup or a small bowl, pour the batter from 3~4" above the pan in a circular motion. Fill the holes with more batter.
  • Drizzle oil over the dosa and cook on medium flame until the dosa is crispy, about 2~3 minutes. Flip over and cook for another 2 minutes. Serve hot with chutney.
