Quick onion dosa

Mix together the flour, cream of wheat, rice flour, cumin, onion, chile, optional ginger, 1 cup of water and the salt, adding more water by the 1/4 cup as needed to form a very thin batter.


Lightly spray a nonstick griddle or frying pan with cooking spray and heat it over medium-high heat. Spread 1/4 cup of batter at a time thinly on the griddle, working from the center outward, in a circular motion as described for Sada Dosa. Spoon some oil around the edges and cover. When the dosa is cooked through and crisp, about 2 minutes, flip it over and fry the other side, 1 minute, adding more oil as necessary. Serve hot with Coconut Chutney.

This is one of the easiest and tastiest versions of the dosa. It’s as close to an instant dosa as you’ll ever find.
