How about sharing an easy and quick breakfast recipe today ? It will be more interesting, if you come to know that this is a very healthy breakfast recipe. When you are craving for an easy and quick breakfast, you can scroll through this recipe. We are using wheat flour as the main ingredient here and then we prepare crispy and tasty dosa’s out of it.

This is an instant dosa recipe. There are lots of instant dosa’s which can be easily made with oats, semolina, etc. Usually dosa’s are prepared by fermenting. But here, we need to mix all the ingredients only with water. Then pouring over hot tawas, our crispy dosa’s are ready to be served.

The batter prepared should be of flowing type. If you feel that the batter is thick, you can adjust it by adding water. And if the batter is more loose or watery, you can add wheat flour. Taste and check if the salt is balanced.

Adding rice flour and semolina is the reason for crispy wheat dosas. These flour makes dosa thin and crispier. There are many versions of wheat dosa. You can also make this dosa by adding whole wheat flour alone. You may get soft dosas which will be similar to the taste of chapatis. I always prefer to add rice flour and semolina. These crispy wheat dosas are more delicious with sambar and coconut chutney.

Crispy Ghee Roast Dosa and Coconut Chutney

Ghee roast is a South Indian tiffin made with dosa batter formed to a thin paper texture. One of the most important thing to be noted is that the tawa should be in medium flame.
