Peppered Wheat Dosa

Peppered Wheat Dosa

Most of us know about the goodness of black pepper, right? As far as I know, black pepper helps in good digestion and relieves cold symptoms. I remember my mom used to make small balls out of jaggery mixed with black peppercorns to treat cough. It really worked for me! I recently heard that it is better if we replace red chili powder with black pepper powder, as peppercorns proved to possess many medicinal benefits.

I usually add red chili powder while making wheat dosas, but this time I thought of using black pepper powder. Another reason was, I had bad cold that day. So thought it would work both ways: good for my throat and also give a different taste to wheat dosas. It really tasted delicious and spicy. 

Peppered Wheat Dosa
  • 2 cups Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1 cup Rice Flour
  • 1 tsp Black Pepper Powder
  • Buttermilk to mix
  • Oil to pour around dosas
  • Salt as required
  1. Combine wheat flour + rice flour + black pepper + salt using buttermilk. If no buttermilk is available, just add some plain yogurt and water to mix the batter. The batter should be thin.
  2. Heat a non-stick pan. Take a ladleful of batter and first pour around the edges of the pan in a circle.
  3. Quickly fill in the circle to make it into a big circle. 
  4. Pour some oil around the dosa and let the dosa cooked for a while. 
  5. Then flip it over and pour some more oil (optional). 
  6. When it is cooked on both sides, remove from the pan and transfer to a serving plate.
  7. Repeat the same process with remaining batter. 
  8. Enjoy these delicious and spicy dosas with your favorite chutney. 
  9. We had our dosas with peanut chutney.
  10. Yummy!!
