Leftover Rice Dosa

Somewhat akin to a crepe, a dosa is a pancake that is made from fermented rice and dal batter. Sometimes, however, it is prepared from an unfermented batter, and this recipe uses unfermented batter prepared with leftover boiled rice. This dosa is, therefore, an "instant" dosa in the sense that the batter needs no fermentation.

6 dosas


  • 1 cup leftover boiled rice
  • 1 cup rice flour
  • 2 tbsp sooji (semolina), ground fine
  • 3 tbsp dahi (yoghurt)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp chopped hara dhania (cilantro)
  • Oil, for frying, as needed


  1. In a grinder jar, add the leftover boiled rice, rice flour, sooji, dahi and salt. Blend. Add 1/2 cup water and blend again. Add the remaining 1/2 cup water and blend again to form a dosa-like consistency batter.
  2. Transfer the batter to a bowl, add the cilantro and stir well. Cover the batter and let it rest for 5 minutes.
  3. Preheat a dosa pan on medium heat; then brush a little oil over it. Pour about a 1 1/2 ladlefuls on the pan and spread it into a large circle. Pour a little oil over it and let the dosa cook for about 2 minutes, until it is a little cooked on top and the underside changes a bit in colour.
  4. Flip the dosa and cook the other side for about 2 minutes as well.
  5. Transfer to a plate and prepare the remaining dosas similarly.
  6. Serve the dosas with coconut chutney.
