Methi Dosa

Dosa made from Fenugreek seeds & Rice

Recipe by Mrs.Soujanya Hariprasad of Santa Clara, US

This dosa can be eaten anytime. This is commonly given to Nursing Moms who fee their babies.

Ingredients vegetarian 2 servings

    • 1 cup Methi seeds
    • 1/2 cup Raw Rice or Rice Flour
    • Salt to taste
    • 2 tsp Black Pepper powder
    • 1/2 cup Ghee (clarified butter)


    1. Soak Methi seeds for 2 hrs.
    2. Soak Rice for 4 hrs.
    3. Grind Methi seeds & Rice to a paste. Donot add too much water. The batter should be thick like normal Dosa batter.
    4. Remove to a bowl. Add Salt & Pepper powder. Mix well. No need to ferment.
    5. Heat Tava & apply little oil. Spread a ladle full of batter. Put some Ghee on top & around it. Cook for a minute & Flip to the other side. Serve with Coconut Chutney.
    Note : The batter will be sticky & cannot spread like normal Dosa. Hence the dosa will be thick like Uttapam. It will taste bitter as Methi seeds are bitter in taste but very good for health.

    I feel 1cup methi seed to 1/2 cup raw rice is too much and would make the dosa bitter. I take methi seeds soaked in water overnight for high bp, the water is bitter to the taste when drinking, so I am just wondering as to the propotions given in your recipe.
