My Aunt had suggested me this recipe some time back. I didn’t give a thought, today I wanted to make something different. This is so simple and easy to make. More over you don’t need fermentation of the batter.  I was so happy with the outcome and my hubby liked it as well.

Raw Rice : 1 cup (250 ml)

Tomato : 2 large or 3 medium

Red Chili Powder : 1 teaspoon

Cumin Powder : 1 teaspoon

Salt : 1 teaspoon

Oil : to drizzle over dosa

Cilantro Leaves : chopped 1 tablespoon

To Temper:

Oil : 1/2 teaspoon

Mustard seeds : 1/2 teaspoon

Split Urad dal : 1/2 teaspoon

Cumin Seeds/Jeera : 1/2 teaspoon

Curry Leaves : Few


  • Soak raw rice in water for 3 hours or over night.
  • Roughly chop tomatoes.
  • Drain water from rice, add the tomatoes and grind it to a smooth batter. I used 100 ml of water to grind. This would be a little watery and not as thick as normal dosa batter.
  • Now add cumin powder, red chili powder, salt and chopped cilantro leaves and mix well.
  • In a small pan, add oil and when hot add items in to temper. When they crackle mix with batter.
  • Heat a griddle.
  • Now pour this batter and drizzle oil over the dosa. After 2 to 3 mins flip side and cook.
  • This might get torn, just be careful while flipping sides.
  • Instant tomato dosa is ready 🙂 serve with coconut chutney.
