  • 1 cup cooked rice
  • ½ cup wheat flour**
  • 1 cup rice flour
  • 1 - 1½ cup water, add as required adjusting consistency
  • ¼ cup curd/yoghurt
  • salt to taste
  • pinch of baking soda (optional)
  • oil/ghee for drizzle on dosa
  1. In a blender take 1 cup of cooked rice, ½ cup wheat flour and 1 cup rice flour.
  2. Add 1 to 1.5 cup of water to blend smooth. (Add gradually and see consistency)
  3. Add more water in batches if required and blend to smooth paste. 
  4. Transfer the smooth paste to a mixing bowl.
  5. To this add ¼ cup of curd. 
  6. Then add in the salt to taste and baking soda. (see notes)
  7. Mix well to get a dosa batter consistency. 
  8. Add more water to adjust consistency.
  9. Heat the griddle/Tawa. 
  10. Once the tawa is hot, pour a ladleful of batter and spread out in a circular motion just like a normal dosa. 
  11. Add some oil or ghee on top of the dosa
  12. Cook them covered for a minute or till it turns golden brown and crisp.
  13. You can also alternatively flip it over and cook
  14. Serve hot dosa with Sambar, coconut chutney or any Chutney of your choice. 
  • Baking soda is optional. If you are not using baking soda, keep the batter aside for atleast 15 mins before using it. Baking soda helps it give a softer texture and form bubbles in the batter
  • You can use Maida/ all purpose flour instead of wheat flour
  • You could use any rice which you cook usually. Can use basmati as well. I used the jasmine rice which we have on a daily basis. 
Hope you will enjoy making this one as well. Keep sharing!!

Easy Sambar (without tamarind)

Sambar is a must in most south Indian families and like others even I have grown up having dosa- sambhar and chutney's. A Sambar is a lentil based vegetable stew or curry cooked with dal/lentils along with some veggies and some tamarind pulp. There are coconut based sambar as well and each region has its own sambar variation. In my house, we all prefer quick meals, but yet tasty. My mother who was a working lady would make elaborate meals only during holidays or special occasions. Rest all the meals would be quick yet very very tasty. This is one such sambar which my mom has taught me and is super quick.  This doesn't use tamarind like in a traditional sambar and gets its tangy flavour from tomatoes. Its quick, one pot sambar recipe. Lets dive in and see how its done: Ingredients: Serves 3 1/2 to 1 cup Tur Dal/ Yellow Lentils 2-3 tomatoes chopped (depending on size) 1/2 cup Veggies each of your choice cubed Turmeric powder A pinch of Asafoetida/ Hing 1/2 tsp chilli powder Salt

Home-Made Nuts Powder

Home-Made Nuts powder is something which I have been making since Jeremy was a 9 month old. Initially to introduce nuts, I used to powder each nut separately (one day each) and mix with every food. As he grew older I realized he hates whole nuts especially Almonds and Pistachios. Cashews are still ok with him provided they are salted ones. But still he wasn't consuming much.

But this fine nut powder is a winner and I add it up in almost everything on a daily basis.  So this nut powder is perfect for fussy kid like mine or if you just wanna introduce nuts to your kids diet, this is a good solution. Its pretty simple and fuss free.   The powder is suitable for babies over 8 months, but before you feed this to your baby, make sure that baby has already tried the powdered version o
