My family was visiting me last month and it was a real fun time.
During the visit, my father tried subtly hinting, then openly asking and then really begging me to make coconut dosa. This lacy, white, awesome tasting dosa is my dad’s and my younger brother’s all time favorite food.
Me, the sadistic person that I am, showed him the truck loads of ready made dosa batter I had bought and stored in the fridge, in anticipation of their visit.
‘What will I do with these?’ I asked him. ‘Moreover, I have never made coconut dosa before. I don’t even know how to make them. I don’t even have a grinder!’
My father accepted my reasoning, and dejectedly ate the countless dosas and idlis served every single morning (and nights too, at times) during his stay here.
And look at me now, sharing the very same coconut dosa recipe with everyone! ha…the height of sadism :-))!
And I will make it for you dad, the next time you come :).
- Raw rice : 1 cup
- Coconut : 1 /2 cup
- Salt : as required
- Wash and soak the raw rice for 3-4 hours or overnight.
- The next morning, drain the water and add the coconut and grind to a dosa batter consistency, adding water as required.
- Next step is ‘Kurukku Kachunnathu’. For this, take one ladle of the ground batter and mix with 1/2 cup of water and cook, stirring all the while to get a glue like liquid. I got some lumps in this, but mom doesn’t get any when she does this step. Mix this glue like kurukku to the dosa batter and mix till combined.
- Heat a frying pan or dosa kallu and when its hot, add half a teaspoon of oil and spread with a wooden spoon. Pour a ladle (1/4 cup) of the batter and spread as usual like dosas. Cook both sides and serve hot with sugar. Yes, sugar! These taste best with sugar.
- The above quantity gave me around 8-9 small dosas.

Lovely recipe Rajani, dosa batter that doesn’t need fermentation and you get the look of nicely fermented batter (I mean the holes in the batter). I should definitely try this.
