ತಿಳಿ ದೋಸೆ (Thili Dose) / Instant Dosa/ Rice Flour Crepes

Few days ago Smi of 'Life Begins Nourish it' wanted the recipe for neeru dose. Smi, we don't make neeru dose but we do make thili dose, so here is thili dose recipe for you.......

You need the following to make thili dose :

Rice Flour : 1cup
All purpose flour/ maida : 1 tbsp
salt
water
Mix all the above to make a runny batter.

Seasoning : 1/2 tsp oil, jeera, broken dry red chillies and curry leaves. Heat oil and add the ingredients in the order mentioned. Transfer this to batter.

Heat dose tava/girdle. Apply oil on the tava and spread it over the it evenly. Pour/Spread a big spoonfull of batter over the tava. Now this batter is not like normal dosa batter so you cannot spread the batter with the back of the spoon. All you need to do is to pour the batter rather than spreading it. Let it become crips before you spoon it out of the tava. Enjoy with chutney powder or chutney :) Thin, crisp lacy creepes are ready in less than 15 mins time. We enjoyed our dose with kobbari pudi (coconut chutney powder)

Few Tips :
1. Do not soak the batter. Mix the ingredients and start making.

2. I use maida because the rice flour which we get here is not very starchy kind. If you reside in India and use home made rice flour you may not need maida.

If you are here on this page do not forget to take a recipe from my husband for a simple dal when he was a 'forced bachelor' for few days :D on Cooking Station blog

@ Smi,

:) maja maadi dose thindu

LG said...

@ Aparna,

'Thili' in kannada means a clear layer of liquid. Probably this dose is named so not because of it's meaning. Theluvu dose has transformed itself to Thili dose. Theluvu in kannada means thin which fits well :D . We always say it as thili dose rather than theluvu dose ahahhaa...but thanks for asking this question.

Dibs said...

love the pores on your dosa!

Aparna said...

Thanks for answering my question. We also say "thelivu" for the clear liquid layer which forms from settling, as in rasam.

Dibs said...

Must thank you for this dish. I was too lazy to do any cooking, and I suddenly remembered this dosa, and decided to try this. We had MTR chutney powder at home ...and so within 15 minutes yummy yummy thili dosa was ready! :-)) I was just thinking how easy life is with non stick pans. I cant imagine making this on an iron tava -- but I suppose thats how they used to malke it earlier!

tried thilli dose ,it was yum,..;),thnks fro the recipe...

Jenni Malsingh said...

Mmm, those dosas look really thin and crispy. I make an instant dosa with rice flour and yoghurt. It's very different - much softer and thicker - but it's still good. You can see pictures here: http://mangosoup.blogspot.com/2009/08/coconut-and-rice-flour-dosas.html

you can also add little small rava(we call it chirotti rava) to the batter which gives more taste and crispness.

@ Thanks Mala for suggestion
