'Butter Polo' (Rice Flour Dosa) ~ Using Leftover Batter

"Butter" Polo is a quick dosa made using the leftover Panpolo (Neeru Dosa) batter. I learnt making this dosa from my SIL. In Konkani, Polo means dosa (crepes). This recipe doesn't call for any butter. But it was served with butter. Hence the name :-)

Last year I stayed at my BIL house for a month and ate this dosa couple of times. I was really very happy the way they turned a little amount of leftover batter to a full fledged breakfast, for the next day. I really get excited when I come to know of such ideas. The dosa comes out very crispy. They served this dosa with butter. Hence my nephew (in law) started calling it "Butter" Polo. Do try making this if you have little batter. You can thank me later for this :-)

  • 'Panpolo' Batter (left over) - 1 cup
  • Rice Flour - 1/2 cup
  • Onion, medium sized - 1/2
  • Cilantro (coriander leaves) - 3-4 sprigs
  • Green chilli - 2-3 (I didn't add)
  • Salt- To taste


Chop the onion and cilantro.

Now add rice flour to the leftover pan polo (Neeru dose) batter. Mix well. Add around 1 1/4 cups of water.

To this batter, add chopped onion, cilantro and salt. Mix well (The consistency of the batter is watery). Batter is ready.

Now pour the batter such that you get a lacy pattern, on a pre heated hot skillet . This way you get a crispy dosa (if the dosa comes out thick then your batter is little thick. You can add little water).

Add little oil or butter (optional) on the dosa to make it crisp. Once the dosa turns golden brown and crispy, transfer it to a plate (or you can also turn the dosa to fry the other side).

'Butter' Polo is ready!!

Serve it hot along with butter or any chutney of your choice. Above measurement serves three people.


  1. Interesting recipe. My mom makes Rava dosa with leftover Panpolo batter. Do visit me whenever you are free. Have a nice week.
