Sponge Dosa

This is a simple and easy to make soft,spongy dosa which I have adapted from a magazine.My son calls this dosa as idly like dosa since it is very spongy.It tastes great with a spicy chutney or coconut chutney and I make it atleast monthly once or twice,as my family likes this dosa very much.Today is the day 6 of blogging marathon #15 under fermented foods and now to the recipe....


Idly rice/Pulungal arisi 2cups
Rice flakes/aval1/4cup
Sour buttermilk2-3cups
Saltto taste
Baking soda  two generous pinch
Oil as needed


                           Wash and soak the rice and rice flakes in the buttermilk for at least 4-5 hours.Grind it to a smooth batter.Allow it to ferment for 6-8 hours.Add the salt and soda to it and mix it well to the desired consistency with water.The batter should be slightly watery than regular dosa batter.
  • Heat the griddle and pour a ladle full of batter(no need to spread),drizzle few drops of oil.
  • Cook it covered in a medium flame for a minute or till it gets cooked (no need to flip).Take out from the pan and serve it.
  • Serve it with a spicy coconut chutney.

  • One day older buttermilk works very well for this dosa.
  • While pouring the batter the pan should be hot,once the holes started coming reduce the flame and cook it covered.
  • We like the coconut chutney made with red chillies(used kashmiri variety) and garlic as an accompaniment for this dosa
  • If the batter is too thick or thin the pores won't be formed.

Very nice ...looks so soft and spongy and justifies the name aptly. Good one.

really does look like a sponge :) but am sure it taste better than injera (the only other sponge looking bread I've ever eaten.

My fav dosa,just love with spicy garlic chutney..makes me drool..

Superb dosas, those tiny wholes in the dosa shows how nicely the batter has fermented..

I havent tried this version of dosa...will surely try this the next time i plan dosas.

Poha dosas are regular in our home too. Love that they are so spongy.

I love sponge dosa. I have pretty much the same ingredients. Sometimes we also add thengai and call it white dosa...
