"Dosas are a thin, savory crepe-like Indian pancake traditionally eaten for breakfast, but I like them anytime. These are probably not very authentic as I am not Indian, but they are a tasty alternative that appeals to the typical American pancake."

  1. Stir the brown rice and whole wheat flours together in a mixing bowl. Stir in the water to make a thin batter. Add the onion, garlic, cilantro, sugar, turmeric, cumin, mustard seeds, cumin seeds, coriander, ginger, cayenne pepper and rice vinegar until evenly blended. Cover, and refrigerate for at least 1/2 hour, or overnight.
  2. To cook the dosas, heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Pour 1/4 cup of batter into the skillet, spreading it over the bottom in a thin layer. Cook 1 minute, turn, and cook 1 minute more. Remove from the pan. Repeat with remaining batter.

Delicious savory crepes. I do not use wheat but I found Dosa Flour (a blend of rice and bean fours) at a local East Indian market. Best eaten fresh out of the skillet.

These were really bitter and thick.

The spices and vegetables were really tasty, but the recipe could have used some salt. I thinned the batter even more with some water.

I have made this recipe a couple of times and they are simply delicious! My daughter has even asked for the recipe and they are now very popular with her friends at university. I served these ...

This didn't work for me at all. Apart from adding a little salt, I made them as written. I left them overnight, and the batter got extremely thick so I stirred in a bit of milk. I found it extre...

These were so good and they can be made with what you have on hand! I left out the turmeric because I didn't have any. I also halved the water and flour because I wanted more vegetable and sea...
