About the recipe  

We always make dosa with godhumai maavu (whole wheat flour) which we call as godhumai dosa or karacha maavu dosai or wheat dosai. The dosas are crispy and yummy and kids too ate without any fuss. This whole wheat grain masala dosa recipe is healthy snack.

These dosas are healthy in nature for breakfast.


What Ingredients it Requires ? 

  • Idli rice  1/2 cup
  • Urad dal   2 tblsp
  • Methi seeds | vendayam   1/2 tsp
  • Whole wheat (Muzhu Godhumai)  1 cup
  • Salt as needed
  • Oil as needed to make dosa

How to prepare the recipe:

  • Wash and soak the idli rice, urad dal and methi seeds together for 2 hours.
  • Do not soak the wheat grain.
  • After 2 hours just wash the wheat grain nicely and grind this along with the soaked rice and dal mixture.
  • You can either grind in the mixie or you can use the grinder too. Grind this into a smooth paste.
  • I have tried grinding both in mixie and grinder. Mixie took a little long time but turned out very well.
  • Add salt and mix well.

Ferment the above
Mixie for 3-4 hours. This tends to get fermented soon.


  • Bring this batter to a dosa batter consistency.
  • Heat a dosa pan and pour one big ladle of batter and spread it into a thin dosa.
  • Smear oil on to this. Cook till golden brown.
  • Repeat the same for rest of the dosa batter. 

Improve the Recipe with tips:

No need to soak the whole wheat, the reason is it starts giving the milk. You can replace idli rice with any millet like varagu, kudravaali or ragi too. You can add finely chopped onions, cumin seeds, finely chopped green chili to the batter and make dosa. The batter tends to ferment so soon unlike our usual batter, so maximum 4 hours is enough
