Wheat Jaggery Pancakes Recipe / Kothumai Inipu Dosa Recipe / Vella Dosa Recipe

When we were little kids. We always used to annoy amma asking her to make something for evening snacks..But amma was so consicious about our health, so she never deep fries anything. Instead she make this sweet pancakes for us. She used to make this with pure homemade ghee which amma makes at home. Sometimes she throws some cashews or any nuts in that to make it more healthy and flavourful..As a kid we loved it a lot.Even now my sister ask my mom to make it often. Thinking about this reminds me about my childhood days..

When I was thinking about what dosa to make for today. I thought why not I make this dosa which I growed up with…And I tried it yesterday for dinner, actually I made this for my mother and she totally enjoyed it..The combination of wheat flour and jaggery is perfect in this dosa..I added some rice flour to make the dosa little crispier..You could do this without adding any rice flour too..I hope you will love it for sure ...

Preparation Time : 10 mins

Cooking Time : 2 mins per dosa
Serves : 4 to 5


Wheat Flour / Atta - 1 cup
Rice Flour -  1/4 cup 
Jaggery / Sarkarai / Vellam - 1/2 cup Grated
Coconut - 3 tblspn
Cardamom / Yelakai - 3 crushed
Salt a pinch
Ghee / Oil for pan Frying
Water as needed


Take jaggery in a saucepan and add some water and bring it to a boil Mix well so that the jaggery dissolves in the water. Now strain this mixture through a sieve and allow them to cool down.

Take wheat flour, salt, crushed cardamom, coconut  in a bowl. Add the cooled jaggery water and mix well so that it doesn't form any lump.

Add water slowly and mix well. Make it into a dosa batter.
