  • 1 cup raw rice
  • 1/4 cup urad dal
  • 3 tomatoes
  • 1/4 tsp fenugreek seeds (methi seeds)
  • salt to taste
  • 1/2 tsp cooking soda
  • water as required
  • oil or ghee to cook dosa


  • Rinse raw rice and urad dal separately. Soak them separately in enough water for minimum 3 to 4 hours. You could also soak them over night.
  • Next morning, grind both rice and urad dal together with little water until it forms a smooth batter. Add roughly chopped tomatoes and grind for few more minutes till all tomatoes are ground well.
  • Pour batter into a bowl. Add salt to taste and mix well. Add cooking soda and mix again. Leave it for 10 minutes.
  • Heat a non stick tawa. Pour a ladle full of batter and spread it into round dosa shape. You can spread it thin or leave it a little thick.
  • Dribble a few drops of oil or ghee on the sides. Cover it with a pan and let it cook on low flame.
  • Once the sides of the dosa starts to brown and release from the pan, gently remove dosa from tawa. Repeat the same with rest of the batter.
  • Serve dosa immediately hot with coconut chutney, spicy onion-tomato chutney or even chutney powder.


You can use red rice in place of raw rice for this dosa. 
I haven't used brown rice for dosa batter, but i'm guessing brown rice will work too. Need to check the texture and taste of the dosa with brown rice.
