Poha Dosa/Soft spongy Dosa/ Avalakki Dosa/Aval Dosa/ Beaten rice Dosa

Unlike other dosas, Poha dosa doesn’t need the ingredients to be soaked for a longer time. Just 2 hours will do 🙂 These are super-soft dosas which go well with a spicy chutney or chicken stew. Its very simple yet very delicious.

These go well with any  spicy side dish.You can view few posts of mine which go wellwith spongy dosa like chicken stew, Chicken curry, Tomato chutney, Coriander chutney or red chilli chutney

Soak rice and beaten rice in buttermilk for 2 hours and grind to a smooth paste and ferment it for 4 hours and start making the dosas 🙂 Simple isn’t it? Let me write in detail for you now


Dosa Rice/ Regular rice – 1 cup

Poha/Thick beaten rice – 1/4 cup

Fenugreek seeds/Methi seeds-4

Urad sal/Split white lentil – 1tbsp

Buttemilk – to soak all the ingredients

Baking soda – 1tsp

Oil- as required

Salt to taste


  • Soak all the ingredients except baking soda and salt in buttermilk for 2 to 3 hours.
  • Drain and grind all the ingredients into a smooth paste. Do not discard the buttermilk and use the same when grinding the batter
  • Transfer it in a big bowl and salt.
  • Mix well and keep it aside for 4 hours or overnight.
  • Next morning add a pinch of baking soda and a tbsp of oil and mix well.
  • Spread the dosa on hot tawa. Slightly thick and do not spread it big. Drizzle oil around the dosa and close it with a lid for few seconds.
  • With the help of a turner take out the dosa and serve hot with chutney or stew 🙂
