Sweet Wheat Dosa Using Brown Sugar

This simple and tasty dosa brings back a beautiful memories of my childhood days, where all my cousins used to wait for Friday pooja to get over to indulge this yummy prasadam. Easy to prepare yet tastes so delicious. Though my aunt used to add only chopped coconut pieces, I have included almonds and raisins to make it more tasty and rich. Other dry fruits can also be added to enhance the richness of the sweet.

Ingredients :

3/4 Cup Wheat Flour 
1 Cup Water 
1/2 Cup Brown sugar ( Adjust the quantity according to sweet tooth )
A pinch of salt 
A pinch of Cardamom powder 
6 - 7 Almonds, grated 
6 - 7 Raisins, finely chopped 
2 Tbsp Coconut, grated
Ghee for preparing dosa

Method :

Add sugar and water in a bowl and bring it to boil till the sugar melts. ( String consistency does not required ).

Once done, remove from the flame and add the wheat flour.

Mix well without any lumps and add the grated coconut followed by almonds, raisins, cardamom powder and salt.

The consistency of the batter should be like regular dosa batter. ( not too thick nor thin )

Heat a non stick dosa pan, pour one ladle of the sweet wheat batter.

Smear little ghee and cook both the sides in a medium flame.

Once done, remove from the pan and repeat the process for remaining batter.

Serve hot.

Note :

According to the above measurement, approx 4 - 5 medium sized dosas/pancake can be prepared.

The quantity varies according to the size of dosa.

Adjust the quantity of sugar according to sweet tooth.

Brown sugar can also be replaced with jaggery or regular sugar.


  1. Sweet wheat dosa is healthy filling dosa... Kids will love this for evening snack.. I love that classic presentation priya..

  2. We make similar dish called mitha pudla, wheat flour with brown sugar gives lovely brown colour to the dosa.

  3. We have this in Sindhi cuisine too... we call it Mitho Chillo

Sankara Meen Kuzhambu / Red Snapper Fish Curry

Tangy and aromatic flavor of the curry along with a delicious taste of fish, when served with hot rice gives a joyous feeling for a FISH LOVER like me ;) This four letter word makes me drool any time and love it in any form of cuisine.
Generally Meen Kuzhambu is served with hot rice but it tastes more delicious and yummy when served with Hot steaming Idlis for the next day. The more the time, fish swims in the curry, the taste increases. Flavor of the Fish gets blend well with the curry and enhances the taste and aroma, when served it for the next day. 
Sankara fish has its unique taste and flavor and personally, I feel it gives delicious taste when prepared as kuzhambu than fry. Even few Restaurants started serving "Nethi Vacha meen Kuzhambu and Idli" in their menu.  

Are you a Fish Lover ?? Then get ready to Drool ;)

Ekadesi Kali

Happy Ekadesi Friends!

Vaikunta Ekadesi  is celebrated every year in the month of December or January and particularly on the 11th waxing moon that falls in the Margazhi month. Early morning of this day “the gate to Lord Vishnu 's inner Sanctum” is opened and in tamil we used to call it as “sorga vassal”. And according to our family culture, we used to fast on this  particular day by taking only tiffin items ( No rice allowed). Along with that, Kali is made as offering for god. And the next day of ekadesi is called as Dhuvadesi, on which fast is broken with the preparation of rice and curry with 21 vegetables. My mom prepares karakuzhambu with 21 veggies and according to my in laws place we prepare sambhar with 21 veggies.
