Instant Yogurt Dosa

9 Nov

Challa Atlu.

For a quick yogurt dosa, rice flour and maida are mixed with yogurt into smooth batter along with other spices. The batter is then poured onto hot pan and cooked till the dosa is little brown and crisp. Serve yogurt dosa immediately with any pickle or sambar or any chutney of your choice.
Makes: around 8 (8 inch) Easy Yogurt Dosa.


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

Method of preparation:

Remove stems, wash and coarsely grind the green chiles with salt.

In a mixing bowl, mix together rice flour, maida, yogurt, cumin seeds, green chili paste and salt into smooth somewhat thin batter with enough water.

Heat a flat pan on medium high heat, apply few drops of oil with back of a spoon.
When pan gets hot, pour a ladle full of yogurt dosa batter on pan in circular motions.
Make sure batter is thin enough that it makes small holes when it hits the hot pan.
Try to fill up any big holes and form into 8 – 9 inch diameter dosa.

Don’t spread the dosa with back of the ladle.
Fry till bottom side starts to turn golden brown.
Pour few drops of oil on top and turn on other side.
Reduce the heat a bit and cook on this side for 2 -3 minutes before removing from heat.
Repeat the same with remaining yogurt dosa batter.
Serve instant yogurt dosa immediately with sambar or with any chutney of your choice.
Notes: Make sure yogurt dosa is little crisp before removing from heat.

Suggestions: If yogurt ratio increases, dosa turns soft and sticks to pan. Add the rice flour and maida in respective ratios to balance the extra yogurt. Its not easy to get the batter right the first time. Test the dosa and make sure it comes out brown and little crisp if thats what you like. If the dosa doesn’t come out of the pan, make sure dosa batter is not too thin. If dosa comes thick, make sure batter is not too thick by adjusting with water.
Variations: You can also add finely chopped onion to the yogurt dosa batter.
Other Names: Easy Yogurt Dosa, Challa Atlu.
