  • Mixer/Grinder
  • Bowl for mixing
  • Non-stick tava/skillet
  • Spoons and Ladles


  • 2 cups rice
  • 3 tbsp methi Seeds/fenugreek
  • 1 cup coconut grated
  • 1/4 cup poha
  • 1/2 cup jaggery
  • Salt to taste
  • 1/2 tsp yeast
  • water as needed
  • oil as needed


  • Rinse and soak the rice and the methi seeds together in water for a minimum of 8 hours. Soak poha about 10 minutes before grinding.
  • Grind jaggery, coconut and rice and methi seeds first use water as needed. The batter must be very smooth.
  • Then grind the poha and rice again a fine paste.
  • Finally, grind the rest of the rice.
  • Use a big bowl to transfer the batter. Add salt and make a batter of pourable consistency using water. Set aside.
  • About 2 hours before you need the dough, activate the yeast in warm water and add to the batter.
  • Grease a non-stick tava/skillet add about ½ cup of the dough in the centre.
  • The batter spreads add ½ teaspoon of oil and cover and cook. You will see bubbles form.
  • After about a minute once the dosa is cooked on the top flip it.
  • Cook on the other side and serve immediately.
  • Serve with any spicy gravy. I prefer it with a dollop of homemade ghee.


  • Another option is to ferment the batter overnight or for 10-12 hours. Then you need not add the yeast.
  • You can add turmeric to the batter too.
