Godhi dosa / Whole Wheat crepes


This is a healthy whole grain dosa that warms your stomach on cold winter nights. It is quick to put together and goes great with any curry or chutney you have lying around in your fridge. 

What I used: Serves 4
Prep time: 15-20 minutes
1 cup whole wheat flour
¼ cup fine chirotee rava/semolina
Warm water 1 cup or more
½ cup yogurt (optional)
½ tsp jeera
Pinch of hing/asafoetida
Salt to taste

Mix all the ingredients to form a fairly runny batter. Let stand for 15 minutes.

Prep a dosa or pancake pan by smearing it with an onion. Cut an onion into half, dip it in oil and smear it on a hot pan just before you pour the batter. This gives you a natural nonstick coating.

Pour the batter with a ladle and gently spread it across the pan in a circular motion. Let it cook to a golden brown. 

Gently turn it over to the other side and let it cook the same way. Serve hot. Enjoy!
