Guest author: Gauri Naik

This pancake is called dhirdi in Maharashtra. This is one of the easiest breakfast which can be prepared in minutes. This includes rice flour, wheat flour and little gram flour and so nutritional and tasty. This can be prepared in any season and it tastes great. The recipe is here.


Rice and wheat flour should be taken in equal quantities always. This can be changed as per the number of persons to eat.
1/2 cup Rice Flour
1/2 cup wheat Flour
2 tbsps of Gram Flour
1/4 tsp methi seeds/fenugreek
1/2 tsp Jeera/cumin seeds
1/4 cup of coriander leaves
1 small onion finely cut(This is optional if you don't eat onion just skip it)
Salt as per taste

Dry roast fenugreek and cumin seeds and then make a coarse powder. Mix all the flours together and then add the finely cut onion and chopped coriander leaves. Add the coarse powder, salt and mix it well. Add water to get dosa consistency.

Heat the dosa tava and take a spoonful of batter and spread it on the tava. Dont make it too thin and dont spread it too thick, let it be medium. Now spread a little oil and close the tava with a lid till the pancake is brown on one side. Then turn on the other side and let it cook the same way on the other side as well. Take it out on a plate

Serve it hot with curds and dry groundnut chutney.
