Upwas Dosa (Ghavane) (Ghavan)

Very few people know about this recipe. This is our traditional recipe and is also known as Ghavane. It is a medium spicy, tasty but, a very delicate dish and my husband just loves it.


  • Samo rice (Wareeche tandul)  – 2 bowls
  • Groundnuts (Shengdane) – Roasted and peeled – 1 bowl
  • Cumin seeds (Jeera) – 3 tbsp
  • Green Chilli (Mirchi)  –  7-8
  • Coriander Leaves (Kothimbeer)  – 5 tbsp finely chopped
  • Salt  to taste
  • Oil  as required

  1. Soak Wareeche tandul, Cumin seeds and groundnuts together for about 8-9 hours.
  2. For the batter we have to grind all ingredients except salt into a fine paste.
  3. Grind it well and then add salt and water to make it .
  4. The batter should be very smooth and the consistency should be loose.
  5. You have to add more water into it.
  6. Now keep the pan(tawa)  on medium flame and put some drops of oil.
  7. When the pan is hot use a big spatula or a small bowl to pour batter on it.
  8. You should be very fast while doing this when u pour batter rotate the pan to spread it all over.
  9. Now put the lid on and turn it upside after 3-4 min.
  10. Then take it on a plate after 2 min. Serve hot with cold curd or chutney.

Please be careful while doing this. Whenever you pour batter on the pan it will pop some drops outside or sometimes on your hands too.First dosa might stuck to the pan but afterwards it will come out easily. This happens in any kind of dosa preparation because after 1 or 2 dosa the pan becomes greecy. So try this you will like the taste as it is different and the speciality is this can be eaten for upwas.

  2. Hi Swati,

    Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Hope your husband liked it.

    I am Darshan, Gauree's husband. In fact, Gauree is 8 months pregnant and so can't update her blog as of now. She will be most probably delivering next month and will resume posting, replying to comments after that. Please bear with us and pray for us. Thanks. Darshan Jog

  3. Much as I would like to try out this recipe, I am hesitant in view of the measures you suggest.

    What quantity constitutes “2 bowls” or “1 bowl?”
    I am more familiar with cups (USA).
    Await your reply. Thanks.

  4. Hey hi..
    Sorry am replying a little late. Dont be so confused its very easy to do recipe. About measures whenever i write 1 bowl it means whatever you are using cup or bowl proportion must be the same. If you take 1 cup of samo rice then take half a cup of groundnuts. Only be careful while using groundnuts bcoz if you use a little more groundnuts than this then it will make your dosa stick to griddle. Thats it please do try and surely let me know.

  5. do i need to soak all those things really for such a long time? can’t it be prepared in a short time?
