Sabudana [Sago] Dosa

This Dosa is very simple to prepare and is light on the stomach. At the stages of preparing dosas, this is the best one! Does nt involve any hassles like soaking urad dal for particular duration, grinding it to certain consistency and so on.


Sabudana [Seeme-akki, Sago] – 1 cup
Rice flour – 3 cups
Curd – 1/2 cup
Salt – to taste
Water – as required for the desired consistency
Ghee – to make the dosas


Soak the sabudana in enough water to immerse it completely for half an hour. Now, drain the water, add the rice flour and curd and mix well. Now, add the required amount of water to get dosa batter consistency. Leave it overnight.

Add salt when you are about to make the dosas. Now, your batter is ready to make the dosas. Just drop a ladle of the batter on the hot girdle. This does not require much spreading around too. The dosas are a bit thick. Use ghee to make the dosas. Alternatively, u can use oil also. Yummy dosas, crisp on one side, yet soft and fluffy on the other are ready to savour 🙂 Serve with coconut chutney and enjoy 🙂

Note: The given measurements make about 16-18 dosas of the above size.
