Servings: 8


  • 1.5 cups Raw rice Sona masuri
  • ½ cup Coconut grated
  • Salt – as needed


  • Soak rice for minimum 3 hrs. Drain and transfer to a mixer along with grated coconut, salt.
  • Grind very smoothly adding required water. Adjust water consistency so that it is runny like we make for rava dosa. Thinner better.
  • Heat a tawa and pour the prepared batter first along the outside and fill in the middle. After a minute, flip cook for half more minute.


  • Make sure the mixie doesn’t gets hot too much. Especially when grinding more quantity. Use ice cold water to prevent this.
  • The dosa will look dry when it is getting cooked. You can cook covered to prevent this dry look, but when you flip it will not look dry. So if you wish cook covered.
  • As the batter is thin, as you pour the batter over tawa, it gets cooked. If not, add more water and mix.
