Quinoa dosa is a nutritious twist on the traditional South Indian dosa. This recipe combines quinoa, urad dal, and rice to create a fermented batter that’s rich in protein and fiber. The dosas are thin, crispy, and can be customized with your favorite toppings or fillings. They make for a wholesome and satisfying meal, perfect for breakfast or brunch.



Ingredients For Quinoa Dosa:-

For the Dosa Batter:

  1. Quinoa 1 cup
  2. Urad dal (split black gram) ¼  cup
  3. Rice (any variety, preferably short-grain) ¼ cup
  4. Poha (flattened rice) ¼  cup
  5. 1/2 tsp fenugreek seeds
  6. Water (for soaking)
  7. Salt to taste

For Making Dosas:

  1. Oil or ghee (for greasing the dosa)
  2. Optional toppings/fillings: chopped vegetables, grated cheese, or any other filling of your choice


  1. Soaking:
  • Rinse the quinoa, urad dal, rice, and poha separately in cold water.
  • Soak the quinoa, urad dal, and fenugreek seeds together in enough water for 4-6 hours or overnight.
  • Soak the rice and poha together in a separate bowl for the same duration.
  1. Grinding:
  • Drain the soaked quinoa, urad dal, and fenugreek seeds.
  • Drain the soaked rice and poha.
  • Grind the quinoa, urad dal, and fenugreek seeds together with enough water to make a smooth batter. The consistency should be similar to regular dosa batter.
  • Grind the rice and poha together with a little water until smooth.
  • Mix the two batters together, add salt to taste, and mix well. The batter should be of pouring consistency.
  1. Fermentation:
  • Cover the batter and let it ferment in a warm place for about 8 hours or overnight. The fermentation time may vary depending on the temperature of your kitchen.
  1. Making Quinoa Dosas:
  • Heat a non-stick or cast-iron skillet (dosa tava) over medium heat.
  • Once hot, reduce the heat to low, and grease the skillet with a little oil or ghee.
  • Pour a ladleful of the quinoa dosa batter onto the center of the skillet.
  • Quickly spread the batter in a circular motion from the center outwards to form a thin dosa.
  • You can make it as thin or thick as you prefer.
  • Drizzle a little oil or ghee over the dosa and around the edges.
  • Cook until the dosa turns golden brown and crispy on the bottom side.
  • If you want to add toppings or fillings, sprinkle them on the dosa at this point.
  • Fold the dosa in half or roll it up and remove it from the skillet.
  • Repeat the process with the remaining batter.
