  • Cup Whole Wheat Flour Atta
  • 2 Tablespoons Jaggery Powder sub with sugar, coconut sugar or maple syrup
  • ½ Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 ripe Banana
  • ½ - ¾ Cup Water
  • ½ Teaspoon Cinnamon Powder
  • 2 Tablespoons Ghee


  • Add whole wheat flour, jaggery powder, vanilla extract, egg, banana and ½ cup of water to a blender or mixer jar. Blend on high until everything combines together. Use a spoon or spatula to scrape the sides if necessary. Ensure there are no lumps in the batter.
  • Transfer the batter to a bowl and add the cinnamon powder. Mix to combine. Rest for five minutes.
  • Heat a dosa tawa over a medium-high flame. Once hot, pour a ladle of the batter in the centre and use the back of the ladle to quickly spread it around into a dosa. Drizzle ghee around the edges and in the center
  • Allow it to cook for 2-3 minutes or until the dosa turns brown. Flip it using a spatula and allow it to cook on the other side as well. Once done, transfer onto a serving plate and serve along with some banana and honey.



  1. Can I use unripe bananas for this? Unripe bananas or raw bananas won’t be sweet and do not work for this recipe. Over ripe bananas are best, or at least use bananas that are perfectly ripe. 
  2. I don’t eat eggs. What can I use instead? Egg gives this dosa their structure, but you can use a flax egg (1 tablespoon ground flax seeds + 3 tablespoon water) as an alternative. You can also skip the egg completely. I’ve done this and it works. Just make sure to rest the batter for 10-15 minutes before using.
  3. Whole wheat flour can be substituted in a 1:1 ratio with all-purpose flour or a gluten-free flour
