Instant Dosa

Hi!! have you ever wondered what to do with leftover cooked rice (except eat it with dal) specially when you have guests at home we tend to cook in large quantities and sometimes there are leftovers. After a heavy lunch with guests we often get tired to prepare anything for dinner and wish to have something light. So here is an option to make some instant and light dosas from leftover cooked rice which kills two birds with the same stone (sorry for the sad use of the proverb). The dosas will be light and airy and it is very easy to make them if you have cooked rice leftover. You can use the batter prepared for making uttapas or idlis also. So lets get cooking then…..


Cooked rice – 2 cups

Rava/Semolina – 1/4 cup

Rice Flour – 4 tbsp

Ginger-Green Chilli Paste (optional) – 1 tbsp

Curd/Buttermilk (little sour) – 4 tbsp

Salt as per taste

Water for making batter

Oil for greasing


1) In a blender blend together the cooked rice, rava/semolina, rice flour/maida and 1/2 cup of water.

2) Take out this batter in a bowl and add the ginger-green chilli paste, curd/buttermilk and salt.

3) Add more water as required to make the batter. The batter should not be too flowy. (1 1/2 cups of water should be more than enough at this stage). Keep aside for 10 minutes.

4) Take a non stick pan and grease it with 1 tsp oil. Let it become warm on low flame.Β Once the non stick pan becomes warm spread the batter using a ladle. Let it cook on medium flame on one side. Once it turns brown take it off and serve hot with chutney.
