Ash Gourd Sweet Dosa

Ash Gourd Sweet Dosa

Ash gourd or winter melon or white pumpkin has so many health benefits and it is literally the most ignored veggie by all. In our native we prepare so many varieties of dishes from this white coloured veggie. This particular Dosa is prepared by using an inner core of the veg by removing its seeds. You can make it sweet or plain, that is your choice. I like the sweeter version. It is very soft and melts in your mouth. Today we will see how it’s made.



Dosa rice – 3 cups

Poha – 1cup

Fenugreek seeds – 1 tsp

Ash gourd inner soft part – 1 cup (you can use white part as well)

Coconut gratings – ½ cup

Turmeric powder – ½ tsp

Salt and jaggery- to taste

If you want sweeter versions , add jaggery or else you can omit.

Eno fruit salt – ½ tsp


-Wash, soak rice, fenugreek seeds with sufficient water by putting beaten rice as well.

-After 3 to 4 hours of soaking, grind this by putting Ash gourd, jaggery, salt, turmeric, coconut into smooth batter. Check for sweetness or salt.

– Keep this batter for fermentation. In Bangalore weather, I usually grind any batter around afternoon, so that the next morning it will be perfect.

-The next morning add Eno fruit salt, mix nicely and keep aside for 10 minutes.

– Then you can start making Dosa on the heated iron griddle. Take one serving spoon of batter and pour, don’t spread. Keep the gas flame in simmer, spread little ghee, close the lid and cook. Don’t flip the Dosa. Only one side cooking is needed for this. Here I have used a half serving spoon of batter for each small roundel. Personally I like to serve this as small cute roundels.

-This Dosa tastes good with honey or onion and coconut chutney with red chillies.
