Atta dosa
(Whole-wheat pancakes)

21/2 cups (250 g) sifted whole wheat flour
1 fresh chili, minced
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoon chopped fresh coriander leaves
2 cups (475 ml) lukewarm water

Mix all the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Slowly add the water and whisk it into the flour until you have a smooth pancake batter. Cover the bowl with a cloth and let stand for at least half an hour.

Beat the batter again and cook the dosas as in the previous recipe. If you use about 4 tablespoons of batter to make each dosa, you should get about 15 dosas. Serve atta dosas with coconut chutney or plain yogurt, or both.
