The chances of finding some homemade Dosa batter /Idli batter in the fridge, when you visit a South Indian's kitchen is about 99.99%. Well, I belong in the remaining .01%. I grind the batter sporadically, as and when the fancy strikes me. This is especially true during the onset of winter when the fermentation drills get to me and suddenly I become the epitome of laziness!

But recently, thanks to taste testing a deliciously crispy yet spongy Uthappam at a neighbor's house, I have been on a batter making spree using her recipe. I have ground Dosa batter twice in one month alone! That's a record as far as my house is concerned. My family is not one to eat same dish on a daily basis. Of course - why in God's name would they want to make my work easier now?.

I try a variety of dishes with this ground batter to make it interesting and appealing to my family and this waffle is my little one's favorite. Makes a great breakfast and/or snack option. You can make it plain or add any number of veggies you like. The measurements are approximate, hence do use discretion depending on your waffle maker and preference of the amount/type of veggies. While the little dude likes this Vegetable Dosa waffles on its own, I prefer it dipped in some Spiced Idli Chutney Powder (Mozhaga podi).
  • Cook time:
  • Prep time:
  • Serves: 1 person
  • Yields: Makes 1 (7 inch diameter) Belgian style waffle
  • Abt 1 cup Dosa Batter, see Tips
  • 1 tbsp Onion, finely minced
  • 1 tbsp Tomato, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp Bell Pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp Carrot, grated
  • 1 Green chilli, finely minced (optional)
  • Few sprigs Curry Leaves and Cilantro, chopped
1. Dosa Batter: You can use your own recipe for making Dosa batter or even use store bought.

Vegetables: You can use any assortment of Veggies of your choosing. What taste good in your dosa, would taste just as good in these waffles as well.
1. Take the required amount of batter in a bowl. The amount and the number of waffles will depend on your waffle maker. Mine makes 1 waffle for 1 cup batter.
2. Add the chopped veggies to the batter. I have eye balled the amount. I used red onions, tomato, thinly sliced (quarter) of jalapeno (with seeds removed), Red Bell Pepper, a combination of Rainbow carrots , curry leaves and cilantro.
3. Mix until combined.
4. Pour the batter into your prepared waffle maker. I grease my pan with a combo of sesame oil and ghee.
5. Prepare the waffle according to your waffle maker instructions.
6. For me it took 4 minutes.
7. for it get ready with crispy edges.
My little one enjoys it plain while I love it dipped in Idli/Dosa Spicy chutney powder - Mozhaga Podi. Kids Recipes |  Indian Waffles Recipes | Easy Breakfast Recipes

Tried making the Dosa waffles and they came out crisp and perfect. Thanks for another innovative idea!

By Kim Mehta on Apr 10, 2014

:-P I loved the idea and innovative concept of south Indian food making dosa. I generally get bored of having typical round shape dosa, but you gave new twist to it which I loved :-D and tried it at home. Recently i tried it in my kitty party, it looks tempting and my friends liked it. But to make this recipe the most important is batter, which is make in my Ultra Wet Grinder which has stone to grind the batter so fine as we need. :)

can i use sandwich maker instead of waffel one?

By Madhuram on Mar 5, 2014

Hi Dhivi, I had to stop by and comment that like minds think alike because dosa waffles are our favorite too. Just like pouring syrup over the regular waffles, my sons like pouring sambar on top of these dosa waffles. Try it out and see.

Once again you have outdone yourself with your inventiveness and superb product photography. Now, where did I tuck away that Waffle iron ? :) BTW, we have started making the Dosa batter recently out of grinding soaked Urad dal and Rice Powder (as opposed to soaked rice), and it turns out smoother even when mixed in an ancient Oster.

Awe, thank you. Such motivation helps a great deal:). That's intriguing - you change any proportion or is it just the same? Would love to give that a try sometime. --DK

By Nidhi on Mar 4, 2014

Will definitely try this!! Amazing healthy snack!! Can it be made with uthpam pre mix like mtr?

As long its like a dosa batter, I don't see why it wouldnt work as well. :) --DK

Greetings from Canada ! This looks delicious. I don't think I have ever seen curry leaves here. I'm assuming they are fresh. Can I substitute the curry leaves with something else ? Thanks looking forward to trying this out.

Yes, they are fresh. I just add it for that typical South Indian flavor. You can certainly skip it. Use cilantro instead if you like it. Or else just skip. --DK
