Vrat/Upwaas Dosa

Vrat/Upwaas Dosa

Hey guys! The recipe I am posting today is vrat/upwas/fasting recipe. You can have this for your lunch in your fasting days. The dosa turns out crispy with the stuffing is tangy and spicy. Enjoy it with chaas/buttermilk. So lets get cooking…


For dosa:

Sabudana/Sago – 1 cup

Samo/Sama/Upwaas Rice – 1 cup

Rajgira flour/Amaranth Flour – 1/4 cup

Buttermilk – 1 cup

Water – if required 2 – 3 tbsp

Salt as per taste

For stuffing:

Boiled potatoes – 4 large

Roasted peanut (roughly crushed) – 1/2 cup

Ginger paste – 1 tsp

Green chilies (finely chopped) – 4 pieces

Lemon Juice – 1 lemon

Sugar (powdered) – 1 tsp

Roasted cumin powder – 1 tsp

Coriander leaves (finely chopped) – 1/4 cup

Salt as per taste

For green chutney:

Fresh coriander leaves – 2 cups

Peanuts – 1/2 cup

Ginger – 2 inches

Green chilies (spicy) – 3 pieces

Sugar – 1 tsp

lemon juice – 1 lemon (medium)

Water – approx 1/2 cup

Salt as per taste


Oil/Ghee for greasing

Curd as accompaniment


For dosa:

1) Soak the sabudana and samo in a buttermilk for 2 -3 hours or overnight. After 2 hours grind the samo and sabudana. Add salt to this and water not more than 2-3 tbsp. The batter has to be like regular dosa batter. Do not make it too runny or else the dosa will become too chewy.

For stuffing:

In a bowl take the potatoes and mash it. To this add all the remaining ingredients of the stuffing and mix it all well. Keep aside.

For green chutney:

In a grinder take all the ingredients for the chutney and grind it well. Keep aside.

For dosa assembly:

1) Take a non stick tawa. Pour the dosa batter on the tawa on low flame and spread it. Grease it with oil/ghee.

2) Let it cook on medium flame till little crisp. Now spread the chutney on it then the stuffing. Let the dosa cook on medium or high flame till crisp and serve it hot with curd. (Do not cook the dosa on low flame or it will become chewy).
