Tuppa Dose - Maida-Urad Dal Dosa | Konkani Recipes

Tuppa Dose
It took a while to get over the hangover(yes!) from Croissants.First,I myself could not believe that I put in so much effort into making/baking it along with so many like-minded souls and second,the joy of seeing something so pretty and delicious coming out of the oven.As you can see,I am pretty much obsessing about it,still:)

So let's get on with today's post.Dosa/Dose/Dosha is something which features in our menu more than once in a week.It makes for a very filling dinner too.So whenever I come across a new dosa recipe,I am all ears.Saigeetha of Geeth's Daawat recently posted a dosa recipe and I was intrigued.I make a tuppa dose too,following my mil's recipe which comes out delicious,but here was a recipe which used different ingredients and looked great.I tried it the same day and we loved it.
Tuppa Dose
Tuppa Dose/Maida-Urad Dal Dosa


Urad dal - 1/2 cup
Idli rice - 3/4 cup
Maida - 1 1/2 cups
Salt to taste
Ghee - to smear over the dosa (I used a mix of ghee and oil)


Tuppa Dose-step1 
Soak the urad dal and rice separately in enough water for 3-4 hours.
Tuppa Dose-step2 
Grind both separately and then mix both the batters together.Add enough salt and keep overnight(or for 12 hours)for fermenting.
Tuppa Dose-step3 
In a pan mix together maida and 6-8 cups of water without lumps-keep aside overnight.Next day,discard water on top.
Tuppa Dose-step4 
Mix together the fermented dal-rice batter and the soaked maida batter.The consistency should be a pouring one-not too thick and not too thin.Add water if required.
Tuppa Dose-step5 
Heat a dosa tawa and pour a ladleful of batter.Spread the dosa thinly and smear a tsp of ghee/oil on top.Cover with a lid and cook for a minute.
Tuppa Dose-step6 
Flip over and cook the other side too.
Serve hot with coconut chutney.

Tuppa Dose
  • If the dosa sticks to the tawa,wipe the tawa with a clean,wet towel and then pour the batter.Covering with a lid helps in cooking the dosa evenly.Keep the flame in high when the dosa is getting cooked and in low when you pour the batter.
  • The batter stays fresh for a day in the fridge but more than that it may get sour and the dosa might not taste as delicious.
