being fans of fermented dosa, there are some instant dosa recipes too that we like e.g rava dosa, ragi dosa, oats dosaonion rava dosa etc. this instant atta dosa is also a favorite. its very easy to prepare. you just need to mix all the ingredients and allow the batter to sit for 30 minutes. later you can make the dosas.

when the dosa batter is resting, you can prepare coconut chutney. you can also prepare the batter overnight and refrigerate, so that in the morning you can quickly prepare breakfast. the ease of this recipe makes it a good option for breakfast or even for brunch or a quick snack. in the recipe, the batter is prepared with water. to get a slight sour taste, i have added lemon juice. you can also use butter milk instead of water to make the batter.

the recipe method i am sharing is to make a crisp version of atta dosa. we are not so fond of the soft version, as they taste more like chapatis. but the crisp version does not taste like chapatis. however, you do get the taste of atta in the dosa.

to get the crispness in the dosas, some tips:
1. the tawa has to be hot before you pour the batter or else you won’t get the net effect.
2. pour the batter a little from a height, so that you get the net effect.
3. the batter has to be of a thin flowing consistency.
4. whole wheat dosas takes a longer time to cook. so only when the base is crisp and golden, then flip.
5. use a well seasoned iron/cast iron pan to make these dosas or use a thick bottomed non stick pan.

always add the herbs and spices in the batter. this way the dosa taste better than the plain ones. these dosas have to be served hot. you can serve them with idli-dosa podi or with coconut chutney. the leftover batter can be refrigerated for a day.

  6. atta dosa takes a little longer time to cook than regular dosa. so cook till the base is golden and crisp.
