How to make High Protein Soya Dosa Recipe

  1. To begin making High Protein Soya Dosa Recipe, we will first make the soya dosa batter. 

  2. First we will soak all the ingredients. Soak the soy bean separately in a bowl. 

  3. In a bowl soak the urad dal, methi seeds and chana dal together. In another bowl, soak the rice. Soak them for at least 6 hours or overnight.

  4. Once soaked, you can grind them. Into a mixer grinder, add the soaked urad dal and methi seeds. Add little water at a time and grind to make a thick flowing batter.

  5. Transfer the ground urad dal into a large bowl. In the same mixer grinder, add the rice and add just little water at a time and make thick batter. Transfer the rice into the same bowl as the urad dal. 

  6. Similarly, grind the soaked soya bean adding little water at a time to make a thick batter and add it to the same bowl as the rice and dal.

  7. Add the salt and stir well to combine. Cover the bowl and ferment the High Protein Soya Idli & Dosa Batter for 8 hours/ overnight. 

  8. Once fermented, give it a stir gently. You can make idli the first day when batter is fresh with air pockets. 

  9. Refrigerate the High Protein Soya Idli & Dosa Batter in an airtight container for 4 to 5 days and use it as required.

  10. The next step is the make the dosa, stir the fermented batter, and add just a little water to adjust the consistency for making dosa. It should be a smooth flowing batter and not thick. 

  11. Preheat a dosa tawa over medium heat. Pour a ladleful of the soya dosa batter and spread it in concentric circles until you get a thin 6 to 8 inch dosa. Drizzle ghee around the inside and outside edges.

  12. Cook on medium heat and once you notice the soya dosa turn golden brown, flip and cook on the other side for a few seconds. Flip back again, fold the soya dosa and serve hot.
