Instant dosa mix recipe

Homemade Instant Dosa Mix Flour (Ready to Use) made with idli rava, urad dal flour, besan (gram flour) and methi seeds.

It is very easy to prepare this instant dosa mix flour at home. Whenever you want to make Instant Dosa, just take the required amount of flour. Add some curd (or lemon juice), water and eno (fruit salt). Mix very well and prepare the dosas.

You can even mix the flour with just water or fresh curd and let the batter ferment for 4 to 5 hours or overnight. So no soaking and grinding of rice and lentils here. With curd, the dosas taste much better and have a sour taste than with lemon juice.

The taste and texture of this instant dosa cannot be compared with dosa made from ground and fermented rice-lentil batter, but for an instant version, these dosa are good.


200 grams urad dal or 1 cup urad dal (split and husked black gram)

¼ teaspoon methi seeds (fenugreek seeds)

500 grams rice rava or 3 cups rice rava

20 grams besan or ¼ cup besan (gram flour)

1 teaspoon salt or add as required

Making Instant Dosa Mix Flour

Heat a pan on a low to medium flame. Then lower the flame, add the urad dal.  If using regular urad dal from the market, then rinse it a couple of times. Then spread the lentils on a plate or tray and let them dry naturally or in the sun. If keeping in the sun for a few hours, then you don’t need to roast urad dal.


Roast urad dal on a low flame for about 2 minutes, stirring often. Urad dal is roasted just to get rid of some moisture from them.
Switch off the flame and then add ¼ teaspoon methi seeds. Mix well.
Keep the pan down. Also let this mixture cool completely. You can also cool this mixture on a separate plate.
In a mixing bowl take 3 cups idli rava. Keep aside.
In a grinder jar add the urad dal and methi seeds.
Grind to a fine flour.
Using a sieve, sift the flour directly in the rice rava bowl. Some urad dal grits will be there on the sieve. You can add them to your dals or discard.
Add ¼ cup besan.
Next add 1 teaspoon salt. You can add more salt if required.
Mix very well with a spoon or a wired whisk.
Then spoon the dosa mix flour in a jar. Seal tightly with its lid. Keep in a dry and cool place.
Use the dosa mix flour to make crisp dosas when required.

To Make Instant Dosa From 1 Cup Of Dosa Mix Flour

Take 1 cup of dosa mix flour in a mixing bowl.

Add 1 tablespoon lemon juice or ¼ cup sour curd. Then add 1.25 to 1.3 cups water or add as required. Mix very well.

Then add ½ teaspoon fruit salt or eno evenly all over the batter. Again mix very well.
Then make dosas on a tawa. Keep the flame to a low, so that you can easily spread the dosa batter. On a medium to high flame, it become difficult to spread the dosa batter. Batter consistency is medium thick and flowing like dosa batter consistency.

Cover with a lid and let the dosa cook.

spread some oil or ghee or butter as required while cooking dosas. When the base becomes golden and crisp, remove and serve the dosa.
