Maida Dosa

9 Aug

Maida Pindi Attu.

Maida dosa is quick and instant dosa which has to be consumed immediately. Maida is mixed with a little bit of rice flour and spice. The mixture is made into thin batter and poured on hot flat pan into dosa. The maida dosa can be served immediately with mango pickle or any chutney of your choice.
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.
Other Names: Maida Dosa, Maida Pindi Attu.

    We add a little buttermilk too along with water to get a slightly sour taste but not too much !
    A little finely chopped ginger too adds to the taste.
