Recipe - Brown Rice Dosa (Rice crepes)

Brown Rice Dosa (Crepes)

Dosa is a South Indian dish, which is prepared by a combination of rice and lentils using fermentation process. This is very good for breakfast and even for meals; it is nutritious and does not require a lot of oil in preparation. Dosa is famous in all over India and a most famous street food too. 

This recipe is made with brown rice instead of regular white rice. Brown rice is rich in nutrients because it is the least processed rice in the rice family. So preparing dosa with brown rice is a good idea to make dosa even more nutritious. Here I am describing step by step process with pictures of this recipe, hope you will like it.


For the Batter

  • Brown rice - 3 cups
  • Urad Dal (black gram skinned) - 1 cup
  • Salt as per taste
  • Fenugreek seeds (methi dana) - 1 tsp.

To make dosa

  • Potato filling
  • Non-stick pan


Preparation of batter

  • Measure brown rice and urad dal in 3:1 ratio in a deep bowl and wash them well and add fenugreek seeds, then fill the bowl with enough water then let soak overnight or for at least 6-7 hours
  • To make the batter, grind the mix into a smooth paste using a grinder when all mix is grinded put it in a bowl. Now batter consistency should not be very thick should be thick enough to coat a spoon dipped in it
  • Now add salt to the batter, mix it and leave it for fermentation in a place with temp 85-90 degree F for 6-8 hours
  • After this incubation time batter should be doubled in volume stir it well and now batter is ready to make dosa

Dosa Making

  • To make dosa grease your nonstick pan with 1-2 drop of oil with the help of an onion top and turn the flame on at medium-high
  • Now with the help of a ladle (big spoon) pour the batter in the middle of the pan and spread it in a circular manner to make a thin crepe
  • When you have spread the batter thin enough drizzle few drops of oil all over the dosa and also in the edges after a few minutes you will see that dosa is no longer soft and has started look cooked
  • If you flip the dosa you will see it has turned light golden in color, put the potato filling in the middle press a little and start to fold the dosa cook for a few more seconds more
Your dosa is ready, serve with your favorite chutney!
