Dosas (Indian-style Pancakes)

jweakman

"Dosas are a thin, savory crepe-like Indian pancake traditionally eaten for breakfast, but I like them anytime. These may not be very authentic, but they are a tasty alternative that appeals to the typical American pancake."

  1. Stir the brown rice and whole wheat flours together in a mixing bowl. Stir in the water to make a thin batter. Add the onion, garlic, cilantro, sugar, turmeric, cumin, mustard seeds, cumin seeds, coriander, ginger, cayenne pepper and rice vinegar until evenly blended. Cover, and refrigerate for at least 1/2 hour, or overnight.
  2. To cook the dosas, heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Pour 1/4 cup of batter into the skillet, spreading it over the bottom in a thin layer. Cook 1 minute, turn, and cook 1 minute more. Remove from the pan. Repeat with remaining batter.

  • Cook's Note:
  • You may substitute chickpea flour for the 1/2 cup whole wheat flour, if desired.

Delicious savory crepes. I do not use wheat but I found Dosa Flour (a blend of rice and bean fours) at a local East Indian market. Best eaten fresh out of the skillet.

These were really bitter and thick.
