Podi Onion Dosa

Dosa and Idli podi(powder) are traditional recipes of Tamilnadu cuisine. This is a must or mostly had for breakfast in South India. There are various types of Dosa. Can change the veggies and add flavour of our choice.


For Dosa batter:
Boiled Rice - 3 cups
Urad dal - 1 cups
Fenugreek seeds - 1 teaspoon
Salt to taste
Ghee/Oil - few drops

For Podi:
Urad dal - 1/4 cup
Split peas(Kadalai paruppu/Channa dal) - 1/4 cup
Fried split peas(Pottukadalai) - 1 tablespoon
Lentils (Tur dal) - 2 tablespoons
Sesame seeds - 1/2 tablespoon (optional)
Red Chillies - 6-7 pr as spicy required
Salt to taste

For Garnishing:
Onion - 1, finely chopped
Green chillies - 2-3 or as spicy required
Coriander leaves - few, chopped

Soak rice in water, dal for 2-3 hours.

Grind them seperately and mix them with salt and water.

Ferment it for 8 hours or leave the dough overnite, so that it is perfect for the mornings.

Dry roast all the ingredients of Idli podi except salt and fried split peas. Grind all the ingredients to a coarse powder.

Heat flat pan, apply oil/ghee to it. Using a laddle apply batter and spread it like a pancake.

Sprinkle finely chopped onions, green chillies, coriander leaves, "podi" and cook for 2-3 minutes.

Flip dosa and cook the other side of it.

Serve it hot.

Cooking time : 10 minutes
