Besan dosa/ gram flour omelete

After marriage i was making kara bajji's using potatoes and onions. Sometimes with eggs too. But whenever i make something with gram flour my hubby simply liked it. So thought of trying some varieties of dishes with gram flour. Once i heard from my friend that North Indian people have some dosa recipes using gram flour. So i just gave a try to make this dosa. Simple superb and perfect for gram flour lovers. It smells like omelet. I tried it without eggs but we can smell egg in that dosa. You can give a try for breakfast or as simple dinner.


This dosa is fully made with gram flour. So those who like gram flour can try this dosa. I mean those who like bonda, kara bajji, kara boondhi will surely love this recipe. It will smell like omelete.

You will need:

  • 1 cup Besan / gram flour
  • 2 tbsp Onion ( finely chopped) use food chopper or very finely chop using knife
  • 2 tbsp Tomato (finely crushed or chopped)
  • 1 tsp ginger garlic paste
  • ¼ tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 green chilli (finely chopped)
  • ¼ tsp chilli powder
  • ½ cup coriander leaves
  • pinch of asofoetida
  • ¼ tsp ajwain seeds(omam)
  • 1 egg (optional)
  • salt to taste
  • water to mix (just to get dosa batter consistency)
  • oil for making dosa

Mix all the ingredients with water to form like a dosa batter except oil. Please don't forget to add ginger garlic paste and also to chop all the ingredients finely. Heat griddle/tawa/ nonstick pan pour a ladle of batter and roll it around to spread it evenly. Cook one side pour some oil around and turn other side to cook .When done remove and serve

You can top one side of the dosa with sliced panner or cheese to get cheese omlete.

Enjoy you besan omelete. One good thing about this dosa is , it doesn't need any side dish. Hope this makes you happy!!!!!
