Readymade Dosa Batter

Last week we went to the city to purchase a kayak and on the way noticed a building with the words “Patel Brothers” & “Celebrating Our Food….Our Culture.” As if it had a mind of its own my truck made a quick sharp turn into the parking lot. It turned out to be the most well stocked Indian grocery store we have run across, and we seek them out everywhere we go. Take a look at the gallery of photos from their website:

One of the items we purchased was readymade dosa batter found in the refrigerated section of the store. Is that convenient or what?!

A few days ago I made dosa to go with our meal…

…and this morning I made uttapam using the same batter except without thinning with water. The vegetables added to the batter were onions, carrots, red chili, green chili, cilantro, spinach and bell pepper.

  1. The LIKE button is still not showing up on my end. Does it on yours?
    This batter looks quite interesting. How difficult is it to mix up one’s own? Odd ingredients available only at an Indian-type grocery?

    1. I see like buttons both on your posts and on mine.

      Making one’s own batter is a rather involved with soaking times, grinding and sometimes fermentation time. Urad dal is probably only found in Indian stores. I’m not sure if other legumes can be substituted.

  2. I’ve used chana dal, but never heard of this kind of batter. Looks interesting for a good way to use up bits of this ‘n’ that for a hearty meal. May try it with more regulation crêpes.

    1. Dosa is made with a runny batter and is very thin, crepe-like and usually crispy. Uttappam is thick like a pancake and vegetable ingredients can be added, either on top immediately after the batter is poured into the pan, or mixed into the batter (the way I prefer).
