Rajma Dosai

Rajma / Red Kidney beans Dosai:

It is one of the healthiest dosai, which you can consider to feed your family. Whenever i am running out of Regular Idly/Dosai batter, I used to make dosa's with whole grains like this. These are healthy, as well as it will be a change for the family also.

Given Quantity makes about 10-12 dosais'


Rajma - 1 cup
Rice - 1/4 cup (or a hand ful)
Salt - as per taste
oil- as required to prepare dosai

To Temper:
Mustard seeds - 1/2 a tea spoon
Urad daal - 1/2 a tea spoon
Jeera/ Cumin seeds - 1 tea spoon
Perungayam / hing - 2 pinches
red chilies - 2
curry leaves - a few
Oil - 1 tea spoon (to temper only)


1.  Soak Rajma and rice separately for overnight or for 8-10 hours.
2.  Drain water and rinse it once with cold water.
3.  In a blender / mixer grind Rajma and rice together. Add water as required.
4.  Keep batter in dosa batter consistency.
5. Temper the batter with the listed items.

6. Heat the dosa pan and pour a spoonful of batter and spread to a thin crepe.
7. Cook well on both sides

8. Serve with your favorite chutney.


1. It is must to cook well on both the sides, until they become golden brown and crispy. (approx takes 2-3 mins on each side, depends on the dosai thickness)
2. You can add chopped onions and chilies to get more flavored dosai.
3. For whole grain dosai, If it is not cooked properly, you will get indigestion.
