Sponge Dosa / Super Soft Dosa – Dosa Recipes

I am up with another week of Blogging Marathan with a new theme, this week theme is going to be 7 days of dosa recipes..I can see many of your faces are smiling..I know the reason, Dosa is a saviour of us all time…When my mother have no time to cook or have nothing in our house(except dosa batter), she will quickly ruzzle up some hot crispy dosa and some coconut chutney..How good is that…I really like dosa a lot, but I always want it to be different. I don’t like to have the boring dosa always..Sometimes I make onion dosa,  tomato dosa with some crushed pepper on top(YUM YUM), vegetable dosa and many more..i am planning to post all sorts of dosa soon..So keep checking on..
Now coming to todays recipe, it is going to be sponge dosa..Yes which is entirely new to me when I heard about this first..But now we make it often at home..This is a soft porous dosa which stays soft for a long time..This taste great with spicy coconut chutney or tomato chutney..Hope u like it and let me know what you think..I am sending this recipe to Blogging Marathan Day 1 under the theme Seven Days of Dosa Recipes
Recipe Source: Raks Kitchen


Rice – 2 cup
Aval / Poha – ¼ cup
Buttermilk / More – 4 cups
Baking Soda – ½  tsp
Salt to taste
Oil for frying


Soak rice, poha in buttermilk overnight. In the morning add it to the blender, (if there is lots of buttermilk left please drain it, a little amount is not a problem).

Blend it into a smooth paste. Add enough water to make into smooth batter. The batter should be little bit thinner than the dosa batter.

Now add in salt and baking soda and mix well.

Heat a pan. Try to use non stick. Pour a ladleful of the batter in it, don’t spread the batter..It will spread automatically.

Drizzle some oil around the sides. Cover it with a tight fitting lid and let it cook for a min.

Now there will be small holes formed over the top. Remove and Serve..

If there is no holes formed, add some more baking soda or check if the batter is thick..If it is thick add some water and adjust the consistency.

Take all your ingrediants
Take rice and poha in a bowl
add buttermilk over it
Cover with a lid and let it rest overnight
In the morning it will be all foamed up and well soaked
transfer it to a blender..If there is lot of buttermilk,drain some off..
and make into a smooth puree
transfer to a bowl and adjust the consistency by adding some water
add salt and baking soda
and mix well
Pour a ladleful of batter over a hot tawa..Don't spread it...Drizzle some oil
Cover with a lid and let it steam
till cooked
Serve with any Spicy Chutney
