How to make instant bread dosa recipe – easy breakfast recipe

Bread dosa is an instant and tasty breakfast dish which is prepared with bread slices, semolina, curd, rice flour and spices and mildly tempered.  It does not require any elaborate preparation or fermentation and can be done quickly, unlike the normal dosa.  This tasty and crispy dosa goes well with coconut chutney or sambar.  Here I have used white bread for making this dosa.  Bread dosa becomes healthy when prepared with whole wheat bread slices or brown bread or multigrain bread.  It is a perfect breakfast recipe or light dinner snack.  You can also add chopped onions or grated carrot or cabbage to make it more nutritious.


Prep Time : 15 mins

Cook Time : 20 mins

Servings : 2-3 persons

Total time – 35 mins



White bread slices – 8-10

Semolina or rava – 1/2 cup

Rice flour – 2 teaspoons

Curd – 1/2 cup

Salt to taste


Oil – 2 tablespoons

Mustard seeds – 1/2 teaspoon

Cumin seeds (jeera) – 1/4 teaspoon

Green chillies – 2 (chopped finely)

Urad dal – 1/2 teaspoon

Chopped coriander leaves  – 2 tablespoons


Take the bread slices and trim the edges of the bread.  Grind the bread slices to a fine powder.


Then add semolina, rice flour, curd, salt and water and grind  to make a batter of dosa consistency.  Pour the batter in a clean bowl and check for the consistency.  Adjust water and salt accordingly.


Heat oil in a pan.  Add mustard seeds and cumin seeds and allow it to splutter.  Add urad dal and saute till light brown. Add green chillies and chopped coriander leaves and saute for half a minute.  Add this seasoning to the dosa batter and mix well.


Heat a tawa on a medium flame.  Pour a big spoonful of the batter and spread wide to a medium circle.  Drizzle oil on the top and sides of the dosa and cook for 2-3 minutes.  Flip the dosa on the other side and cook till crisp and light brown.


Serve bread dosa hot with chutney or sambar of your choice.



Adjust water accordingly and bring the batter to the dosa consistency.

Add chopped onions, grated carrot/cabbage for a more healthier version of dosa.

Use slightly sour curd for better taste, as the batter is not fermented.

        Hi bread dosa was an innovative recipe.but it’s sticking to pan.i can’t spread even.please give tips for non sticky bread dosa.

          Hi Preethi.. thanks for trying my recipe.. there are several reasons for dosa sticking to the incorrect batter consistency, batter not fermented enough, not enough oil for making dosas etc. You can try using traditional cast iron tawa exclusively for dosas..One simple tip is to apply oil to the pan, the night before you make the dosas.
