ABOUT Rulav Bhakri (Instant semolina Dosa) RECIPE

Any busy morning breakfast back in India was always "Rulav Bhakri" or instant suji/semolina dosa with green chillies and coconut. Along with a hot cup of coffee or "filter kapi" this is a simple but nostalgic breakfast for me! Currently residing in USA.

Ingredients Serving: 4

  1. 2 cups suji/semolina/rava
  2. 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
  3. 1/2 cup grated coconut (fresh or frozen)
  4. 3 green chillies
  5. 2 tsp cumin seeds or jeera
  6. 2 tsp sugar
  7. Salt to taste
  8. Oil for shallow frying the bhakri
  9. Ghee or fresh butter for serving


  1. Dry grind coconut and green chillies in a small blender jar coarsely, until jut mixed. Do not grind too much.
  2. Mix suji and whole wheat flour or atta in a large mixing bowl. Add the coconut mixture along with cumin seeds. Mix well.
  3. Add 3 to 4 cups of water depending upon how thick you want the batter. This bhakri batter is thick, but flowing. Stir in salt to taste and sugar to make it mildly sweet. Adding sugar is totally optional.
  4. Heat a cast iron dosa griddle. Sprinkle some water on it and once dry, smear a bit of oil all over it. Take a large ladle of bhakri batter and gently spread in circular motion on the griddle to make a thick dosa.
  5. This step of spreading on griddle can be done by patting a small ball of thick dough onto hot griddle and patting with fingers to form a disc. Drizzle oil on bhakri and cook covered on medium heat until bottom is light brown. Flip it over.
  6. Cook the other side; you may add some more oil or ghee if preferred and then cook until done and well roasted on both sides.
  7. Remove and make more bhakris as needed. Serve hot with fresh ghee or homemade butter on top! I love to eat this with some hot Indian pickles, some chutney powder or even Schezwan Chutney!
  8. Enjoy these easy, instant homemade Suji Bhakris with a hot cup of coffee or tea!
