These deliciously soft dosas made with whole wheat flour and urad dal flour are also convenient to make because the batter does not require a long fermentation. Just mix the ingredients, temper it traditionally, let it rest for half an hour, and you are ready to cook the dosas.

Since the Wheat Dosa (Godhuma Dosa) replaces high glycemic index rice with whole wheat flour, it is diabetic friendly. Serve these dosas immediately on preparation, as they tend to get chewy over time. Also, these dosas will be soft and not crisp as they are made of whole wheat flour.

Wheat Dosa and a glass of Apple Cinnamon Soya Shake makes a filling diabetic-friendly breakfast.

Tips to make pefect wheat dosa

What is a Dosa?

  1. Simply put, the Dosa is a pancake. One of the most popular snacks in all of South India, over time it has become popular all over the country and globally too. Dosa is made by spreading a batter on a hot griddle and cooking it with a little oil, or sometimes even no oil, till it turns golden brown and crisp. While most people use a non-stick tava these days, you can also opt for a traditional iron tava, which will enhance the taste as well as give you a nutrient boost. The basic Dosa batter is made of rice and urad dal. The ingredients are soaked, ground into a fine batter and allowed to ferment for 8-10 hours. The Dosa can be enhanced by topping the dosa with spice powders like the Idli Milagai Podi or other ingredients like roasted coconut, chopped onions, chopped tomatoes, etc., while it is still cooking.

Healthy Wheat Dosa is what my daughter relates with this recipe. I had tried this recipe for my father-in-law, who is a diabetic, but my daughter enjoyed it more. I make this on Sunday mornings at least once a month as this doesn''''t call for any fermentation. try it out....
