Soy Beans Crepes (Dosa)

Soya Beans Crepes

I use soy milk and tofu quite regularly, but soy beans not so much. I have tried using it but was put off by the smell. The only dish we liked was the roasted soy beans until we ate these dosas. I have wanted to incorporate it while grinding for dosa but was not sure of the measurement. Luckily I saw this recipe for soy beans dosa in Red Chillies’ blog. I soaked the rice, beans and urad daal immediately and couldn’t wait to taste them the next day.

I was in a huge surprise because the dosa was unbelievably soft and tasted great. I also prepared the potato side dish for the dosa which was delicious too. I was able to taste the soy beans very very lightly, but when you have it with a spicy side dish you can’t notice anything. This dosa batter is so versatile. I made idlis too and it was very soft and spongy. I also tried appams with the batter. These soy beans appams had a crispy exterior and soft interior.

Also you can spread the batter so thin, it’s like a tissue paper. You would have heard of Rumali (handkerchief) roti but this one is rumali dosa. So instead of preparing round dosas, I made it square to make it more appealing for my son. He loved it very much. Because each dosa uses very less batter you can really make a LOT of dosas. Also this can be a very good recipe to start dosas for small children because it’s that soft.

Thank you very much for this awesome recipe RC.

    Hi Madhu,

    I googled and found your website, I’ve been making black soya bean milk everyday for my hubby and just thought if I could do something with the sieved soya beans.

    Also, are there any substitute for rice flour? Could I replace it with brown rice flour? or make the dosa entirely with soya bean instead?

    Bavani, I use brown rice instead of white rice while making dosas. It comes out well, so does idlis too. You can’t use just soy beans to make dosas. You need some other flour or rice to bind it. I prepare instant dosas with brown rice flour. It comes out good as well. You can try adding the crushed soy beans while grinding for adai.
