  • 2 cups rice
  • ½ cup coconut fresh, grated
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil for making dosas


  • Soak the rice overnight in water (or minimum 5-6 hours)
  • Drain the water and rinse thoroughly
  • Grind rice and coconut with some water into a smooth batter
  • Add salt and mix well. Adjust the consistency of the batter by adding water. The batter must be very runny (similar to rava dosa batter)
  • Heat a tawa/griddle until it is hot. Turn the flame to medium. Lightly grease the tawa and wipe off excess oil using a kitchen towel. Sprinkle few drops of water on to the tawa and let it evaporate
  • Take a ladle full of batter and pour it evenly on the tawa. Swirl the tawa so that the batter is spread all over
  • Add ½ tsp of oil, cover and cook for 1-2 minutes
  • Flip and cook on the other side for a minute (when properly cooked there is a lace-like pattern on the dosa)
  • Serve hot with coconut chutney or saagu
