Watermelon Dosa

Interesting enough that Watermelon is a vegetable but its sweet and loved by everyone at home. Watermelon is 92% water. I had read in a magazine (about 15 years ago) about watermelon rind dosa, and thought of trying it at home.


4 cups watermelon rind (white part)
salt to taste2 cups whole wheat flour
1/4 cup maida
3 tbsps rava
1/4 cup finely chopped onions (optional)
5 finely chopped green chilies (optional)
3 tbsps chopped cilantro
1 tbsp cumin seeds
Water if needed
oil or oil spray to sprinkle

  1. Add salt to the grated watermelon rind, onions and green chilies. Keep it aside for 30 minutes.
  2. Add wheat flour, maida, cumin seeds, cilantro and rava. Mix well. If the batter is thick, add water for consistency.
  3. Heat the skillet and spread the batter on the skillet as you spread dosa (but watermelon dosas will not be think and crispy).
  4. Sprinkle a 1/4 tsp oil or use oil spray to spread little oil. Bake dosa for two minutes on medium high. Flip dosa and bake on the other side for two minutes.
  5. Serve hot with coconut chutney.
Note: You can freeze grated watermelon rind divided in required portions and thaw before using.
