Besan Puda (Gram Flour Dosa)

By: Manjula
Region: Indian
Dish:Vegetarian - Breakfast/Tiffins/Snacks


1 cup besan (gram flour) (available in Indian grocery stores)
1/4 cup rice flour (optional)
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup water
1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds (jeera)
1 teaspoon chopped green chilies
1 cup shredded zucchini (Italian squash)
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro (green coriander)
About 6 tablespoons of oil to cook.


Shred the zucchini with the skin and keep aside.
Mix all the dry ingredients together: besan, rice flour, cumin seeds, and salt. Add the water slowly to make a smooth batter, the
consistency of pancake batter or Dosa batter. Add the green chilies, cilantro, and zucchini. Mix well.
Use a non-stick skillet and place on medium-high heat. Test by sprinkling a few drops of water on it. Water should sizzle right away.
Pour about 1/2 cup of the batter into the skillet and spread evenly with a back of spoon. Starting from the center, spiral the batter outward evenly to form a circle about 7″ in diameter.
When batter starts to dry, gently spread one teaspoon of oil over it. Wait about 30 seconds; flip the puda using a flat spatula.
Press the puda lightly all around with the spatula to make the puda cook evenly. Turn the puda three to four time, until crisp and brown on both sides.
Repeat for the remaining pudas.


BasenKa Puda is a tasty dish for breakfast or a light lunch. This recipe is quick to prepare and can be served many different ways. In my house this is a favorite dish for breakfast, folded with cheese.
