Wheat dosa is a flavorful and nutritious South Indian pancake made from whole wheat flour, spices, and herbs, offering a delightful fusion of tradition and wholesome goodness in every bite.




  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 tbsp rice flour
  • A dance of finely chopped onions, green chilies, and ginger
  • 1 tbsp coriander leaves chopped
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • Salt to taste
  • Water, as needed
  • 1 tsp oil or ghee


  1. Prepare the Batter:
    • In a large mixing bowl, combine the whole wheat flour, rice flour, chopped onion, green chilies, grated ginger, coriander leaves, cumin seeds, and salt.
  2. Add Water:
    • Gradually add water while stirring continuously to make a smooth batter. The consistency should be similar to that of a regular dosa batter, slightly thicker than crepe batter. Let the batter rest for 15-20 minutes.
  3. Heat the Tawa:
    • Heat a dosa tawa or non-stick skillet over medium heat. Once hot, sprinkle a few drops of water on the surface. If it sizzles and evaporates immediately, the tawa is ready.
  4. Make the Dosas:
    • Stir the batter well. Pour a ladleful of batter onto the center of the tawa.
    • Using the back of the ladle, spread the batter in a circular motion to form a thin dosa. Start from the center and work your way outwards.
    • Drizzle a teaspoon of oil or ghee around the edges of the dosa and a few drops on top.
  5. Cook the Dosa:
    • Cook the dosa on medium heat until the bottom turns golden brown and crisp. The edges will start to lift slightly when it’s ready to flip.
    • Carefully flip the dosa using a spatula and cook for another minute or until golden brown on the other side.
  6. Serve Hot:
    • Once both sides are cooked to your liking, transfer the dosa to a plate.
    • Serve hot with your favorite chutney or sambar.
