  • 1 cup - whole wheat flour
  • 1 tbsp - rice flour
  • 3/4 cup - powdered jaggery
  • 1 pinch - cardamom powder
  • Ghee - for cooking
  • A pinch of ginger powder and a pinch of salt can be added for additional flavour (Optional)

How to Make Vellai Dosai

  • Dissolve jaggery in one glass of warm water, filter and cool.
  • Mix in the wheat flour and rice flour little by little in the cooled jaggery water.
  • If needed, add more water as you mix the dough till it reaches a pouring, dosa batter consistency.
  • Mix in the cardamom powder and optional ginger powder and salt.
  • Grease a tava with ghee and heat it.
  • Pour a ladle of dough and swirl it holding the handle, so that the dough spreads evenly on the tava.
  • Dribble ghee all around and cook till it is done.
  • Since the dosai contains jaggery, it will be a little sticky. Use a non-stick tava and a flat spoon to flip it over, else the dosai can tear.
  • Cook the other side for a few seconds and remove the Vella Dosai from the tava.
  • Allow the dosai to cool for a few seconds before serving. This will let the caramelized jaggery to cool and the dosai will set.
  • Serve warm, topped with a generous blob of unsalted butter.
