Godhuma Dosai | Instant Wheat flour Dosa Recipe | Wheat Dosa

Print Friendly and PDF
  Today's post is an easy, instant wheat flour dosa. We call it as Godhuma dosai in Tamil. I think some of you might have expected a biryani post today. Sorry friends, I was not able to share any biryani recipes for the past few weeks as I was concentrating on Diwali recipes. And now, after eating all the high calorie Diwali sweets & snacks, we are in the mood of taking some diet foods at least for a week. So strictly there is no biryani in the menu. But I am sure I will make some interesting biryani recipe for blogging sake and come up within this week. Stay tuned !!  

  Today’s post Godhuma dosa /Instant wheat flour dosa ( Atta dosa in Hindi, Godhumai dosai in Tamil, Gothumba dosa in Malayalam, Godhuma pindi dosa in Telugu)is the one I make at least once in a week for breakfast or dinner. It’s a very easy to prepare, Instant dosa recipe that can be made in no time. More than me, Sendhil likes this dosa a lot. I make it in two ways based on the time in hand. One by adding tempered & sauteed onions and one more very simple version just by adding raw pepper & jeera. It tastes great in either ways. You can make this dosa for breakfast or dinner on lazy days.  

  My mom & MIL makes this dosa in a healthy way without adding rice flour. But I add little rice flour to make it crispy. Some people also add curd or buttermilk to get a mild tangy taste but I don’t add it. My mom & mil makes coconut chutney as side dish for godumai dosa. When I was young, I used to have it with sugar as side dish. But now my vote is for spicy tomato chutney. Sendhil loves to have this dosa with idli podi. So in the above picture, you can find the dosa with my favorite & his favorite side dishes and a store bought juice. Whatever be the side dish, it tastes great when eaten hot ! Lets see how to make South Indian style godhumai dosa recipe with stepwise pictures and a video !

Godhuma dosa recipe
  • Add this sauteed mixture to the flour and mix well. Add some water and make a thick, smooth paste without lumps. Use a whisk for better mixing. Now add more water and make it slightly watery that regular dosa batter consistency so that u can make thin dosa. If you add less water, dosa will be very thick. If you add more water, dosa will come out very thin and lacy.
  • Sometimes it may break while taking out. So add water carefully such that dosa should come out firm & crispy. For this recipe, I used around 2-2.25 cups of water. This may vary as per the atta you use.
  • Now heat a dosa pan and grease it with oil. When the pan becomes hot, lower the flame to medium. Take a ladleful of dosa batter and pour it in a concentric manner. First fill the outer portion of dosa tawa. Then fill the inner portions & holes. Refer VIDEO for better understanding. Drizzle a tsp of oil all over the dosa.
  • Cook for few seconds in high flame. The sides of dosa will lift automatically. Now flip the dosa and cook in medium flame for few seconds. Remove in a plate. Before making the second dosa, lower the flame completely and mix the batter well. Now pour the batter and make dosas. Serve hot with chutney or podi as u wish !

    Enjoy !
  • If you wish to make thick dosas , add less water. For thin dosa,more water should be added. But do not make the batter too thin.
  • Suppose if the batter is too watery, add some atta & rice flour to adjust its consistency.
  • If you don’t want to add onions, u can completely skip it and add pepper corns instead.
  • This dosa can be made even without tempering. In that case, just dilute the batter and add raw pepper corns, cumin seeds. Mix well and make dosa.
  • You can also make this dosa without adding rice flour. Add equal amount of wheat flour & Ragi flour. Dosa will be easy to cook, firm and healthy too.
  • For mild tangy taste, u can add 2 tbsp of curd or 1/4 cup of buttermilk in the above recipe.

Enjoy this easy, healthy and quick dosa recipe for breakfast or dinner !

Hi,Dosa may stick to the pan if the consistency of the batter is not right.It may also stick if rice flour is less or curd /buttermilk is more.If the heat of pan is less,dosa may stick to the pan.Grease the pan well before pouring the batter.So please follow my recipe and while cooking the dosa,keep the flame high.Make the batter watery and wait till the sides rise by itself while cooking.U can easily flip the dosa.I guess these points will help you Sathya :)
