  • Peel the carrots and grate it, or pulse it in a food processor or mixie until it gets minced.
  • Combine the chickpea flour, minced carrots, shallots, curry leaves, cilantro, red chilly powder, cumin, asafoetida and salt in a bowl.
  • Slowly add 1/2 to 3/4 cup of water to the bowl and whisk everything to form a batter without lumps. It should have the consistency similar to Dosa batter. If you need to make thinner crepes, add more water.
  • Heat a nonstick pan or griddle and brush some oil or ghee on the surface. Pour a ladle full of batter onto the pan and spread to form a pancake of 1/4 ” thickness.
  • Cook for around 2-3 minutes on medium heat or until set. Flip and cook the other side for two more minutes. Brush more ghee on the dosa if needed.
  • Serve these piping hot with Ginger Coconut Chutney. They don’t taste all that great if cold.


  • These taste great when they are made thin like crepes. Adjust the consistency of the batter so that you can make thin dosas.
