Cook's Hideout: Challa Ponganalu (Poha Dosa)

July 14, 2007

Challa Ponganalu (Poha Dosa)

These dosas are fluffy, slightly tangy and extremely easy to make. I had this recipe for a while now (courtesy of our neighbor in India) and when I saw Asha’s Avalakkai dosa, I had to give it a try.

Rice – 1 cup
Poha (Atukulu) – ¾ cup
Buttermilk - for grinding
Salt – to taste

  • Soak rice overnight. Soak poha for ½ hour.
  • Grind rice and poha with buttermilk and salt to make a thin batter similar to dosa batter consistency.Cover and allow to ferment overnight or for atleast 8-10 hours.
  • Make dosas on a non-stick skillet with little oil.
  • Serve them hot with chutney or podi of your choice.
