Healthy and easy to make recipe for South Indian Tamilnadu Samba Godhumai ravai / Cracked Wheat Dosai. With step by step pictures.

This is a recipe to do if you have very little regular dosa batter and you are breaking your head for choices in the kitchen. I learnt this recipe from Vinodh’s aunt Prema Amma long time back when she visited us in California. She would do these kind of jiffy recipes which would turn out to be super hit. I like her recipes as they are super tasty and can be made very quickly. More over this recipe uses almost 90 percent cracked wheat – samba godhumai ravai. Its super healthy and super delicious. I do it almost every week. Don’t fret when you have very little dosa batter. Make this Samba Godhumai dosai and your entire family will love you for this.

Here is the video of how to make Samba Godhumai Dosa, Broken Wheat Dosa

Here is how to do the batter.

Soak samba godhumai (cracked emmer wheat), onions, cumin seeds, ginger, curry leaves, dried red chillies and salt. Add more red chillies if you want it more spicy. I used 1 cup-250 ml of wheat. So I soaked in 2 cups – 500 ml water. So the water ratio is 1 cup wheat : 2 cups water. Soak it for 20 minutes. Upto 30 minutes is fine.

After soaking, grind it into a smooth paste. Do not use any additional water while grinding. The soaked water will be sufficient. Add water only if you think its really necessary. We are looking at a consistency of dosa batter.

Add in 2 cups of regular dosa batter. Old dosa batter works best. Mix everything well. Add little water if the batter is too thick. It should be to the consistency of regular dosa batter.

Heat a dosa pan / skillet until hot. Let the flame be at medium. Pour a ladle of Samba Godhumai batter onto the skillet. You can gauge the consistency of the batter from the below picture.

Using the back of the ladle spread Samba Godhumai batter into a round.

Sprinkle 1/8 teaspoon of oil onto the pan. Let it cook for 30 seconds until the sides are brown and little brown spots start to appear.

Flip carefully with a thin metal spatula, and cook until browned. Upto 30 seconds more. Transfer to a plate. Continue with the remaining batter. Serve Samba Godhumai warm, with chutney.

    Such dosa is good especially when you live in severe cold regions. Can we use Barley instead of wheat?

    Love broken wheat dosha but never tried it. Thank you for the superb recipe.Would it possible to add ulunthu and rice to broken wheat , leave it to soak and then blend them all together with the onion curry leaves etc. This is because I may not have dosha batter ready at hand. Thank you

      sorry jayasri. A little dosa batter is needed for preventing the dosa sticking to the pan. Dosa batter also helps in spreading the dosa.
