bun dosa recipe | soft spongy thick dosa | how to make soft bun dosa with step-by-step photo and video recipe. dosa and idli are one of the most breakfast recipes from south indian cuisine. perhaps it is one of the musts for many south indians if not for the larger indian audience. evidently it has to lead to many types of variants and one such popular variant is the bun dosa recipe known for its soft and spongy texture.

as i was trying to explain, the texture and thickness are very similar to the bread bun and hence it is referred to as bun dosa. in addition, the batter is prepared with only rice and no urad dal is added to it. the rice-based batter is later fermented and this helps to attain the bun-like texture. adding urad dal lentil may not help to attain this shape and texture. it would give a flat and spreadable texture to it. moreover, the addition of coconut brings a new flavour altogether. you may feel it is very similar to neer dosa but has its own feature and characteristics. in addition, the additional tempering to the dosa batter makes it special and unique from all the other dosa recipes.

furthermore, i would like to add some additional tips, suggestions, and variants to the bun dosa recipe. firstly, the rice-based batter has to be fermented thoroughly and do not compromise with 8-12 hours of resting. if you live in cold weather, keep it in sun heat or in preheated oven. secondly, use appam pan to cook the dosa in it. the curvy shape of the dosa pan helps, to easily spread by itself and achieve the thick shape like a bun. lastly, the combination of chutney and spicy coconut sambar is ideal for this soft dosa recipe. you may very well prepare it overnight and use it for next morning breakfast to save time.

notes:

  • firstly, adding tempering to the batter is optional. however, it enhances the flavour of sponge dosa.
  • also, make sure to use raw rice to have super soft and spongy dosa.
  • additionally, if the pan in thick then you can cook on medium flame. make sure not to burn the dosa.
  • finally, i have not added baking soda in the bun dosa batter as i have naturally fermented the batter.
