Visiri Dosai | Chettinad Visiri Dosai

Visiri Dosai

Visiri Dosai from Chettinad is a lacy crepe made with different flours and is an instant dosa variety. This means there is no fermentation needed and if you are in a hurry to make something, this is the dish you will opt for!

I adapted it from this recipe and I have no clue why this dosa is called as Visiri. Visiri means a hand fan in Tamil though I hardly think this dosa has any resembles or reference to the hand fan. Whatever may the reason be for the name, this is one quick Dosa you can make and it really turns out really good. Though yes the recipe calls for 2 hours of resting period, I only did for an hour and it still turned out lacy.

Visiri Dosa is a wonderful option for this alphabet, while I did have other picks like Vermicelli Dosa, Vendiya Dosa and how does Vegan Dosa sound?

Anyway, though we have always been making some instant dosa variety or the other, the ones I have made for this series are outstanding and very delicious. I especially found these instant dosas very good and Hubby dear has said I should repeat these again. I will for sure do.

The days are hectic with hardly any time to pause or even think. Updating both the blogs are always on top of the mind and I haven’t even checked how my fellow marathoners are doing. I should surely catch up soon.

Meanwhile, you can check this easy to make dosa that I made for V, which is Visiri Dosa in the AtoZ Flatbread and More, where I am doing AtoZ Dosa Varieties. I had another funny incident when I realized what I did for V in the AtoZ Indian Flatbread, do check it out.

  1. There are so many dosas that I haven’t heard of , including this Virsi Dosa . This marathon has been a true learning experience . I wonder how I would have coped up if I had picked this theme !
    The Dosa looks crisp and the addition of onion shallots makes me drool .

  2. This is so much like the crispy rava dosa we make. The only difference is the addition of wheat flour. Never heard of this name before, but this would definitely be a delicious dosa for sure.

  3. I’m very fond of South Indian food and never knew there are such a huge varieties of dosas. I should have born in South to enjoy these dosas everyday 🙂 Anyway, now you are helping me by introducing all those dosas. Thanks Valli for all these lovely dosas

  4. A perfect dosa recipe to make as it needs no fermentation. I also love the tempering ingredients, makes it so flavorful. Can have it on its own with chutney. Fan shape or not, its a useful recipe.

  5. such a yummy dosa with flavorful tempering. does not look like made with rice flour. Loved it as instant and no fermentation required.
