(Vermicelli) Semiya Dosa

(Vermicelli) Semiya Dosa

My 36th recipe “Semiya Dosa (Vermicelli Dosa)”, an interesting recipe with the fusion of upma and dosa tastes. Today I felt like having dosa for breakfast, but I didn’t have any dosa batter left in my refrigerator. RK suggested to make vermicelli upma for breakfast, since it is one of his favorites and I can make that quickly as well. But for some reason I was in no mood to eat upma and wanted to have my dosa. Suddenly this idea of fusing vermicelli into an instant dosa twinkled in my mind. Though I was little apprehensive to start with, this semiya dosa came out very well and tasted even better than the regular dosa. It looked very tempting as well, that it was very difficult controlling myself to not eat it until I had taken the photos 🙂

Notes | FAQ

- I used roasted vermicelli. If you dont have roasted vermicelli, you can just dry roast the one you have and let it come to room temperature before adding to the mixture.
- Do adjust the water quantity accordingly, to get a batter consistency as shown in my pic. The batter should be thin similar to rava dosa batter consistency.

Are you using roasted vermicelli without cooking it or will it soak in the batter and become soft ?


Tuesday 3rd of July 2018

Correct Veena, it will be sufficient for the vermicelli to soak in the batter.
