  • Cup Quinoa
  • ½ Cup Rice
  • ½ Cup Skinless black gram /urad dal
  • 1 tbsp Fenugreek seeds
  • 4 tbsp Cooking Oil as required
  • 1/2 tsp Salt or as required


  • For quinoa dosa batter recipe, Soak Quinoa, rice, urad dal and methi seeds together for 4-6 hours.
  • Grind it in grinder / mixer, to form flowing consistency, dosa batter.
  • In a large bowl, pour in the batter. Blend them well by adding salt by using wooden ladle or hand. I prefer to mix them with hand as fermentation process would be done quicker. Rest them overnight or 6 hours. The batter might have raised once the fermentation process was over.
  • Heat griddle or dosa pan and spread evenly 1/2 cup of batter on to the pan. Drizzle a tsp of cooking oil, to the dosa/ crepe crispier.
  • When the dosa becomes golden brown on the bottom side, flip it over to get crispier on the other side as well, for about 2 min in simmer flame. Now the super crisp Quinoa dosa is ready. Serving with tomato chutney and coconut chutney, makes this protein rich food to the next level.


If the dosas are soggy, add little rice flour, to make the dosas crispier.
