Leftover Rice Instant Dosa | Instant Dosa with Leftover Rice | Leftover Rice Recipe

Instant Dosa with Leftover Rice This instant Dosa is prepared by grinding leftover Rice and Wheat Flour, and Semolina (Rava). This tasty dish is like a saving grace on mornings when “what to make for Breakfast?” becomes a hugely problematic issue. This instant Dosa can be eaten with Coconut Chutney or any other Pachchadi of your choice.

Mostly leftover Rice is used up by making Zeera Rice or Pulihora (Lemon Rice) etc. Next time you find that rice is left over, try this dish. Surely it will become an instant hit!

Grinding the Mixture:

This mixture takes time to grind. Go steady with the Mixer-grinder. Keep adding a little water while grinding. Grind to a fine paste like you do for Dosa batter.

Cooking Soda:

Actually the batter needs to be fermented. But since we are preparing instant Dosa, it is better to add Cooking Soda. Mix well and let the batter stand fro at least for 10 minutes before cooking.

Making the Dosa:

This Dosa does not brown quickly like the Urad dal Dosa. After spreading on the pan, cook the Dosa on a medium flame until it browns. Turn it over on the pan and let it cook for 1 minute more.

This Dosa should not be spread too thin. Spread it out a little thick so that it does not stick to the pan,


I have used Wheat flour. If have no objection, substitute wheat flour with Maida. The Dosas will be definitely tastier.


Sour curds will enhance the taste of the Dosa. Do not add cold curds directly from the fridge. The Dosa batter does ferment well in cold curds.
