Let’s say dosa has a separate fan base. We love munching on a plate of healthy hot dosa served with sambar and coconut chutney. So much so that dosa has become one of the most popular breakfast options for everyone. All it takes is a little preparation [in advance] where you should keep the dough for at least a few hours to ferment. However, if you are one of those who don’t have much time, don’t worry. There are many easy alternatives where you won’t have to wait long. One such easy-to-make recipe is dosa bun. This instant dosa recipe could be your favorite snack any day. After all, it’s always better to have snacks that require a minimum amount of oil than many other deep-fried meals.

Here’s how to make a dosa bun
- First take a bowl of puffed rice (murmura). Grind the murmura and turn it into a powdered form.
- Mix suji (rawa) and dahi with powdered murmura. Add salt to your taste and start mixing everything well.
- You can use some water if you like. Don’t pour too much water at one time. Continue adding in small portions and keep mixing until you get the consistency of batter. Cover it with a lid and let it sit for about 5-10 minutes.
- Meanwhile, prepare delicious chutney. To do this, take a jar for grinding – put finely chopped green chili peppers, roasted peanuts, garlic cloves, dried coconut powder and coriander leaves, and then fresh cottage cheese. At the end, add salt and turn it into a paste. Chutney is ready.
- Add tadka to chutney to enhance its flavor. To do this, take a frying pan for tadki and heat it in oil. Add mustard seeds, then urad dal and curry leaves. Mix well. Add a pinch of hing and pour the tadka over the chutney.
- Check the murmura dough you made. Add tadka to the dough. Heat some oil in a separate tadki pan, add mustard seeds, urad dal, green chili and chopped curry leaves. Mix them well. Then add tadka to the dough. Add ENO to the dough and add some water to activate it. Mix the dough well.
- For bun dosa, take a frying pan, kadhai or tawa, and grease it with a little oil. When the pan is hot, pour the dough full of a ladle into the center of the pan. You will notice that it will automatically expand a little in the round shape.
- Cover the pan with a lid and let the bun cook for a couple of minutes. Once this is done, turn it over and follow the same process for the other side. Cook on both sides until they turn golden brown. Make as many buns as you want.
- Serve hot with chutney.
