Mixed Rice- Lentil Dosa- Version 1

Mixed Rice- Lentil Dosa is one more newly learnt dish. I am happy to say that this is my 25th post on dosa. I got this recipe from a FB friend. When I made this dosa, it reminded me of the tuppa dosa which I had in Taj Mahal (a popular restaurant of Mangalore). I am very thankful to P for the wonderful recipe. 

  • Rice- 1 cup
  • Red rice/ Kerala matta rice- 1/2 cup
  • Urad dal/ Split black gram- 1/2 cup
  • Salt- To taste 
  • Ghee/ oil- For frying


Wash and soak the rice and urad dal, together for 6-7 hours. Then grind it to a smooth paste. Add water as required, while grinding. Keep the batter to ferment for 8-9 hours. Once done, add salt and adjust the consistency of the batter. It should not be too thick or thin. Now batter is ready.

Pour a ladel full of batter on the hot tawa and spread it. Sprinkle little oil/ghee. Close it with a lid.

After a minute, the lower surface starts turning golden brown.

Turn the dosa and fry the other side as well, until it turns golden brown. Transfer it to a plate. Mixed Rice- lentil Dosa is ready!!

Serve it hot with coconut chutney or any spicy curry of your choice. Above measurement serves 3-4 people.
