Whole Wheat Dosa (Atta ka Cheela) Recipe by Manjula

Posted on

Today I will be making Whole wheat dosa.

This is a quick and easy recipe.

Whole wheat dosa was my mother's favourite.

And this was known as 'Atta ka cheela' in my home.

She enjoyed whole wheat dosa with mint chutneyand loki chane ki dal.

This recipe will make 8 dosas and will serve 4.

To make whole wheat dosa we will need: 1 cup of whole wheat flour (atta) 2 tablespoons of fine sooji (semolina) 1/2 teaspoon of salt 1 teaspoon of sugar 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper 1/2 teaspoon of carom seeds (ajwain) 1 tablespoon of oil And about 4 tablespoons of oil to cook dosas.

So first I will make the batter.

For that, add all the dry ingredients together.

Whole wheat flour Semolina Sugar Baking soda Salt Carom seeds And black pepper.

Mix it well Add the oil.

And add water slowly.

Batter should be lump free.

So mix the batter well and we need some morewater.

Batter is looking good.

Smooth and lump free.

And it has a pourable consistency.

I have used 1.

25 cups of water.

This is a quick and easy recipe.

No grinding and no fermenting of batter is required.

Heat is on, medium.

I am using the non-stick skillet.

This works the best.

So I will drop just couple of drops of oil and wipe this.

The skillet is moderately hot.

So pour 1/4 cup of batter right in the cente And using the back of the laddle, just go around and spread it evenly in about 7 inch of circle diameter.

So let it cook for about 1.

5 minutes.

You will see the dosa has started drying upand changing the color from the sides.

So now I am going to put about 1 teaspoonof oil all around.

And about 1 teaspoon of oil in the center.

And wait until you can see the dosa changing the color.

And it has started lifting from the sides.

So I can see dosa turning brown.

So I will just lightly lift it.

It's very easy.

Just turn it over.

It has a beautiful color.

Adding the sugar helps giving the color andcrispness to dosa.

Cook dosa on the other side also for about 1/2 a minute.

Turn it and see that is has nice brown spots.

So this is ready.

Just take it out.

Pour 1/4 cup of batter right in the center.

And with the back of the laddle, just go aroundand spread it evenly in about 7 inch circle in diameter.

Let it cook.

The batter has dried up from all sides.

And now pour 1 teaspoon of oil all around.

And 1 teaspoon of oil in the center.

So dosa has started catching the color.

So I will just turn it over.

This is looking very good.

So before pouring the batter for the nextdosa, make sure you do wipe the skillet.

Dosa is ready and I am going to take it out.

Whole wheat dosas are looking delicious, nice and crispy.

Today I am serving this with hari (green)cilantro chutney and yogurt for breakfast.
