This versatile and healthy dosa is easy to prepare and a great substitute for whole wheat bread. Buckwheat provides a hearty, slightly nutty flavor that goes well with a variety of fillings, and the simple ingredients used means you can avoid the fillers and additives used in most store-bought bread. We use this dosa for breakfast, lunch, and dinner!
Note: This recipe requires the batter to stand for at least 4 hours to allow the flours and water to combine. We prepare this and let it stand overnight so it’s ready to use the next day. You can store the batter in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
