Keto Dosa

Oh crepe! Could this really be breakfast?

So my father-in-law is on keto and, after a month of only eating eggs for breakfast, he was done. He wasn’t feeling the love that Indian breakfasts bring – the idlis, the dosas, the upmas, the puttus, the uttapams, the pohas… – which he would have otherwise taken for granted. So my mother-in-law improvised, and made him a keto dosa. Now, if you haven’t eaten dosa, you need to try it at least once in your life. This crisp rice-and-lentil crepe is a staple of the south of the country, eaten with chutneys and curries, stuffed with potatoes (and loaded with cheese, if you’re me) – it’s spectacular. My MIL passed this recipe on to me and I absolutely couldn’t believe the result – a crisp, DELICIOUS crepe that tasted as good or even better than a regular dosa.

Coconut chutney is the perfect accompaniment for the dosa; it’s a few ingredients just ground together and then tempered with some spices. You can also stuff the dosa with your favourite vegetables to make a masala dosa or you can be experimental like I am sometimes and throw in some pulled pork or ham and cheese… just don’t tell my wife’s relatives this.

 

This perfectly doubles up as a keto taco as well

This dosa recipe works perfectly well as a taco, or wrap, in general, as it holds together pretty well.  So you can find plenty of ways to make use of it. Just remember to leave it on the pan till it’s completely cooked and starts to lift up at the edges. Try this crispy crepe once and you’ll find yourself making it every other day. It’s positively addictive.

      I’ve never tried it with that, I am not sure how it works but use 1/2 the amount of coconut flour to the amount of almond flour I used since coconut flour absorbs lots of moisture.

      Oats are not Keto so if you are not on keto you can try it, otherwise nope.

    I was inspired by the recipe, I din have almond flour or coconut milk so I just ground fresh coconut flakes and almonds together with little water.. But it was not crispy 🙁 . Will adding cheese to this mixture make it crispy?

    I love ur channel.. It has made my keto diet really interesting and adventurous

      Yes you will get almond mixed with coconut milk lumps. The cheese is what binds this together. So your only option is to replace egg with cheese.

    Hey Salil, many thanks for coming up with amazing easy to cook recipes for vegetarian keto people

    I tried exactly the way you had mentioned but somehow consistency was too thick. So didn’t come up right. I had used normal milk instead of coconut milk will that be issue?

      Well if you ate like 2 dosas then no issue but milk is fairly high in carbs so we avoid it in general on Keto. If you are just low carbing then no issue.

    I made your dosa recipe tonight. I didn’t have any coconut milk so I used heavy whipping cream & used a little garlic powder for the seasoning. The possibilities with this are endless…It was so delicious. I’ll definitely be making this regularly. Thank you!

    My dosa tasted great but for some reason didn’t lift off the sides and stuck to pan. Any tips to avoid sticking. Maybe I’ll try lining with parchment paper

    I was so excited to see a dosa recipe! I didn’t have coconut milk so, as you suggested, I used heavy cream. The almond flour soaked up all of the cream (it became quite thick) so I added a bit more cream. It stuck to the pan and was a gloppy half burnt mess! But it was soooo delish! Yes, I ate it! Who doesn’t love burnt cheese? Sooooo good. Will try again with coconut milk!

    Love your recipes! Thanks for all of your efforts!

        Um, I made this today but it was super crispy, yum nonetheless, but is there anything I can do to keep it kinda soft enough to eat it with the chutney? Like a normal dosa?
