Corn flour dosas

It is Atla taddi tomorrow. A popular telugu festival where all the women and young girls celebrate a dosa festival at home. Attlu in telugu mean dosas and the festival falls on the third day or tadiya of Ashweyuja month’s bahula paksham. The festival is similar to the North Indian karva chauth where young girls pray for a good husband while married women pray for the well-being of their husband and family. Here is an instant dosa recipe for a quick attla tadde menu.


Corn flour 1 cup

Rice flour (Biyyampindi) 3/4th cup
Green chillies 2
Cumin seeds 2 tsp

Finely chopped ginger 2 tsp
Sour buttermilk (Curd/ pullati majjiga) ½ cup
Refined cooking oil ½ cup
Salt to taste


Finely chop the green chillies and ginger. (Onion can also be added but not during festivals)

The buttermilk need not be very sour. Keep it in the open for around 15-20 mins and that will do.

In a bowl add the corn flour, rice flour, cumin seeds, salt to taste, finely chopped ginger(or ginger paste as available) and chopped green chillies. Keep adding the buttermilk as required and mix to make a batter of normal dosai batter consistency (milkshake consistency, easy to spread on the pan and bake dosas). Cover and set aside for 10-15 mins.

Heat the pan, spread a cup of the batter in circular motion on the pan and sprinkle oil on the circumference make round dosas. Flip the dosa to bake on both sides. Continue the process to make more dosas.

Serve hot dosas as is or with spicy ginger chutney/coconut chutney or tomato chutney or just chutney podi. Attla tadde or otherwise dosa in itself is a reason to celebrate. Just enjoy!
