Spring Onion Dosa

A flavorful dosa with spring onions. Rice and different dals is the base of this dosa, with a ratio of 2 :1. Dals should measure all together to one cup, where you can increase any one dal proportion a little bit. More of Channa dal or toor dal will make the dosa crisp and also adds flavor. More of moong dal will make the dosa soft. So you can increase the measure of any of the dals as to what you desire the dosa to turn out to be like.


2 cup - Raw rice, washed well
1/4 cup - Moong dal
1/2 cup - Channa dal
1/4 cup - Toor dal
1'' piece - Ginger
4 to 6 - whole dry red chili or Green chili
1/4 tsp - Hing powder
1/2 tsp - Turmeric powder
1 bunch - Spring onion, finely chopped
Salt to taste


1 ) Wash and soak all the dals and rice in water over night. Then grind to a paste adding little water, dals, rice, ginger, and red chili. The batter should be dosa batter consistency.

2 ) Add hing, turmeric powder and salt to taste. Stir and blend in well. Then add the finely chopped spring onion to the batter and mix. Check and adjust salt to taste.

3 ) Heat a tawa and pour little of the batter on the tawa and spread batter in circular motion like for dosa and cook one side and then turn and cook on the other side. Drizzle some butter or sesame oil on the dosa when cooking on both sides. Take off the tawa and transfer to a serving plate. Serve hot with chutney or can be had without chutney too.

Serve hot with chutney.

Instead of spring onion, coriander leaves can be added to make dosa. Grinding few curry leaves along with batter will give good flavor.

Goodie. A dosa that does not require fermentation. It looks good. Do we have to grind the dals finely? My friend makes a similar dosa where the dals are coarsely ground and mixed with rice flour.

Dear Pravs
Thank you for your comment at my blog...BoDi is same as BaDi.( In Bong it is pronounced as BoDi).
These are generally Udad dal dumplings , sun dried..nowadays it is dried in Oven. It is used in many dishes in eastern India..some other varieties are there too; especially the famous Punjab BaDi...
also available decorative Badis for frying and eating...
Have a nice week ahead
