Benne dosa or butter dosa.


I have tasted this dosa at Bangalore. Benne means Butter in Kannada. This dosa is very popular in Davanagere at Katnataka .Making the batter for this dosa is slightly different from normal dosa. Let us see how to make this dosa.

Preparationtion time 10 minutes. 

Soaking time 5 to 6hours.

  • 1 cup Murmura or pori
  • 1/2 tsp methi.
  • 1tsp Maida
  • A pinch of soda.
  • Salt to taste.



Soak rice and Daal separately for 5 to 6 hours.
Soak urad,poha and methi together.

Wash pori and add to urad daal before grinding.

Grind rice and Daal separately.

Add together mix well and keep this for fermentation for 8 hours or overnight. Batter will rise up.
