Chutney Dosa – Yes, a dosa made with chutney!!

Confused with the title of this post!! Yes, you read it right.. Its a dosa made with Chutney – the easy Chutney Dosa. You might be wondering what this is and how is it done. Read on to know more on how to convert your leftover chutney into a yummy dosa. When you run out of dosa batter, just make chutney and your dosa is done in no time. The best part is this does not need an accompaniment. This is one recipe that I learnt from my mother in law and this tastes yummy. I had already posted a recipe that uses leftover rice and sabji(check here) and one more that uses leftover idlis(check here) .This recipe also attempts to reduce wastage and left overs.

This is extremely simple and can be done in a jiffy with just a few ingredients. I used leftover coconut chutney and have not tried with any other chutney. You can very well try this with some other chutney of your choice and innovate. But once you do so, please do write to me on the outcome 🙂 I will be pleased to know of the same. This is a family favorite and so done very often. So, all excited to know how this is made? Tada.. Off to the recipe now. The recipe does not have strict measurement guidelines and it depends on how watery or thick your chutney is.


Chutney Dosa


Serves: 2

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 10 minutes


For the Chutney:

Coconut Pieces – 10-15 bite sized pieces
Green Chillies – 2/3
Dalia/Roasted Gram/ pottukadalai – 2 tbsp
Salt – to taste
Coriander leaves – a few
Mustard Seeds – 1 tsp

For the dosa:

Finely chopped onions – as needed
Rice Flour – as needed
Salt -a pinch
Oil – 2 tsp


1. Blend all the ingredients for the chutney to a smooth paste and temper the chutney with mustard seeds.
2. Add onions, rice flour and salt to the chutney to make a nice thick paste.
3. Heat a dosa pan. Spread this chutney with a spoon and drizle oil on all sides. When one side turns golden brown, turn to the other side and repeat the same.
4. Serve hot.


– The amount of rice flour depends on the consistency of your chutney. If the chutney is too thick, add little water and required amoutn of rice flour so that it is easy to spread like an adai.
– Add very little salt after rice flour is added since chutney already has salt in it.
