Ghee Roast Dosa Recipe | Crispy Paper Dosa | Nei Roast | How to make Ghee Dosa | South Indian Crispy Dosa Recipe

Ghee Roast Dosa Recipe, Crispy Paper Dosa, Nei RoastToday, I have a buttery treat to all the dosa fans out there. Who doesn’t love to have a crispy paper dosa for breakfast or even as a snack. Ghee Roast Dosa Recipe is a great favourite with dosa lovers especially kids. 

Batter recipe is same like plain dosa or Masala dosa. The only major difference is that while making dosa, you must spread it well for  thin and crisp ghee roast/nei roast. The way the batter is spread and the even heat maintained to roast is the key to perfect dosa. I think making crispy perfect dosa itself is an art. By default kid’s first choice in any restaurant is Ghee Roast. Preparing Ghee Roast at home is very simple. Moreover homemade ghee roast dosa recipe is a quick breakfast dish & can be done in a jiffy once you have the batter ready.

These dosas are thin savoury crepes, unique to South Indian cuisine, made from fermented rice & lentil batter & complemented by condiments like chutney, sambar etc. Dosa is an all time favourite south Indian snack savoured all over the world. This recipe was a big hit in one of my cooking workshops too. They just loved it to the hilt!!

Back then, dosas weren’t made that crisp and “paper-like”… they were thick and soft. In the last few years, things have changed. These days everyone likes the crispy, thin, golden brown…. “restaurant-like” dosas. So, obviously ingredients have changed accordingly!!!

Easy Steps to follow for Ghee Roast Dosa Recipe:

I have already shared how to prepare perfect batter to make both idli and dosas with all the tips and tricks. Please click here to follow the recipe for homemade idli dosa batter.

  • Take some idli-dosa batter in a separate bowl, add very little water to dilute it and mix well so that the batter falls freely from the ladle. The consistency should not be too runny.

  • Heat a flat griddle over medium heat.
  • Once the griddle is hot, reduce the heat further & take a ladleful of batter and pour in the centre of the griddle.
  • If the griddle is too hot, sprinkle little water to absorb excess heat.

Recipe type: Breakfast / Snack
Cuisine: Indian (South Indian)
Serves: 8 to 10 Dosas
Ingredients
Directions
  1. Dilute some idli-dosa batter in a separate bowl, add very little water and mix well.
  2. Heat a flat griddle over medium heat. Once the griddle is hot, take a ladle full of batter and pour in the centre of the griddle.
  3. Use the back of the ladle to gently spread the batter in circular motion.
  4. Drizzle few drops of ghee around the edges of the dosa.
  5. Cook until its golden brown.
  6. When the corners start lifting up, use a spatula to fold and remove the dosa.
  7. Serve hot with any chutney of your choice, sambar etc.

 

My Notes:

  1. A perfect fermented batter & right consistency is the key to get a nice golden crispy dosa.
  2. Batter consistency is very important to get a crispy dosa.
  3. Fenugreek seeds and bengal gram (included while grinding the batter) play an important role in getting soft and crispy dosas.
  4. Always bring the batter to room temperature before making dosas. Cold batter yields rubbery dosas.
  5. While making dosa if you feel the griddle is so hot then sprinkle some water to get it cool down.
  6. In case the dosa sticks to the pan and doesn’t come well, then slice an onion and rub it on the dosa pan with a few drops of oil. It is safer to follow this step each time before making a dosa.
  7. Use enough ghee while cooking to get crispier dosa. In case you do not like ghee, use sesame/gingelly oil for that authentic flavour. Of course, you cannot compare the taste you get with good quality homemade ghee!!
  8. To retain crispiness of the dosa, cook only on one side. Cooking on both sides will make it a little soft. Also avoid covering the dosa with a lid while it cooks a this makes it soft.
  9. The prep time excludes idli-dosa batter preparation.
