BM #130 Week 3 Day 1 - 

This week I shall start a new A-Z series featuring different kinds of Dosas from various regions of India. So it would be Dosas starting with the letters A, B and C for January 2022, D, E, and F for the month of February 2022 and so on.

To kick off the series, I feature this delightful Atukula Dosa. These dosas vary from family to family depending on their individual preference. I have come across versions where they are made thick like uthappams. But this thinner dosa version is what is popular at home and so I went along with it.

We usually prefer Peanut chutney and or Tomato Chutney as an accompaniment. So that is what I served these dosas with.

Ingredients - 

Rice 1 cup (I used Sona Masuri variety)
Poha /Atukulu 1 cup (I used thin variety)
Urad Dal 2 Tbsp
Fenugreek Seeds 1 tsp
Salt as needed
Water as needed
Oil as needed to shallow fry the Dosas

Method Of Preparation -

Wash and soak rice, fenugreek seeds and urad dal in about 3-4 cups of water for about 4-5 hours.

Wash poha in water, drain and set aside.

In a blender add the soaked rice, urad dal, fenugreek seeds and the washed poha. Add water sparingly and grind until the batter is smooth but with a grainy texture.

Transfer the batter into a big vessel, add salt as needed and mix well.

Cover, set aside in a warm place for 8-10 hours allowing it to ferment.

Refrigerate the fermented batter until ready to make Dosas.

On a heated tava(griddle), pour a ladleful of batter and spread it in a circular motion to make dosas. Spray some oil if preferred. Let the dosa cook underside and then flip it on to the other side and remove as soon as it is done.

Continue for the rest of the batter or as required. Refrigerate any left over batter.

Serve with any choice of chutney.


Preparation Time 3 hrs soaking time + 20 minutes grinding time + 8 hours fermentation time + 20 minutes
Makes 12-14 Dosas

  1. This is such a life saver dosa recipe. The dosas comes out so soft and they are delicious.

  2. I am so looking forward to this series. I remember Nalini doing a Dosa Marathon, I was totally awed, and now your series - wow!
    Love the theme, though I am lazy to soak and grind. Perhaps can pick some of the easy ones and make.
    Poha Dosa sounds super delicious .
