Vendhaya dosai recipe | South Indian breakfast recipes

vendhaya-dosai-1

Vendhaya dosai is made often at my mom’s place. MIL also makes the same way as mom. They say this is very good for health. So I too make it once a month atleast. At home, we eat it with coconut milk or  milk with jaggery. If we want it with spicy side dish, we make poondu milagai podi. With curd and poondu milagai podi, the dosa tastes greatHappy.  The healthy sponge dosa recipe. We use only less methi/ fenugreek seeds. So you need not fear that it may be bitter, its not. Its really delicious and melt in you mouth.

Vendhaya dosai recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Indian  |  Recipe Category: Breakfast
Prep Time25 mins grinding time + Overnight soaking     |  Cook time: 1 min per dosa     Makes: 18 dosa

Ingredients

Idli rice - 3 cups

Urad dal - 2 tblsp

Fenugreek seeds - 3 tblsp

Salt - As needed


Method

  1. Soak everything except salt together for 3 hours. Grind it until smooth with water as needed. It should be a teeny bit watery than the idli batter. Not too watery. It takes some time to get ground smooth because of the methi seeds(fenugreek). Use a plastic spatula that comes along with the grinder to wipe off the methi seeds that gets stuck to the walls, hand and the stones while grinding.
  2. 1-dosai 
  3. Lastly add the salt while grinding and transfer to a large vessel, enough to hold the fermented batter. Leave it overnight if you grind around evening.
  4. 2-dosai
  5. Next day morning, mix the batter gently with a ladle and add water if needed. Heat a dosa pan and grease it with few drops of sesame oil. Spread the batter to a thick dosa and cook it covered in medium flame until gets cooked. Takes very less time to cook.
  6. 3-vendhaya-dosa 

Notes

  • No need to flip the dosa and cook as we cook covered.
  • The dosa comes out super soft and porous.  If its hard, either it has not fermented properly or the water quantity is less.

Serve the steaming hot dosa with poondu milagai podi or any podi of your choice.

  10. We add methi seeds to regular idli/dosa batter each time.Methi is so good for health and it gives idli/dosa such a fluffy texture,helps in browning the dosa too.Love the combination of milagai podi and sponge dosa:)

  31. Hello! I would love to make this this weekend, but have a question. I have made dosa and iddly before, and know that for iddly you shouldn't stir the fermented batter because you want the bubbles to stay in, but would I stir the batter for this (like regular dosa)? It looks so spongy so I wasn't sure. / Thanks for all your recipes. Everything I've tried so far has been great!
