Makes: around 6 Maida Pindi Atlu.


Maida 1 Cup
Rice Flour 1/4 Cup
Green Chiles 2 – 3
Cumin Seeds 1/2 tsp
Salt to taste
Oil as required

Method of preparation:

Remove stems, wash and grind green chiles into paste.

In a mixing bowl, mix together maida, rice flour, green chile paste, cumin seeds and salt.
Pour enough water to the mixture to make it into somewhat thin batter.

Heat a flat pan on medium – high heat, apply few drops of oil on the pan.
Pour a ladle full of dosa batter in circular motion around the rim of the flat pan and fill in the large gaps.
When the bottom of the dosa starts to change color, turn on other side and layer with few drops of oil.
Reduce the heat a little and cook for a minute and carefully remove the dosa onto a plate.

Repeat the same with remaining dosa batter.
Serve maida dosa immediately with any chutney or pickle of your choice.
Notes: Make sure to get the consistency of the batter right.

Suggestions: If dosa comes out thick, batter must be too thick. If dosa doesn’t come out well, batter must be too thin so add more maida.
Variations: You can also add a tbsp of sooji for a crispier dosa.
