Savoury Muffins from Dosa Batter

Dosa muffins1


These are tasty, light and flavoursome as well they’re incredibly easy to make if the dosa/crepes batter is handy. Personally, I’m particularly partial to a savoury muffin. You can whip up a batch in half an hour and have a perfect homemade offering to tuck into lunchboxes and picnic baskets, to enjoy as a mid-morning or mid-afternoon snack, or to serve with soup as a quirky alternative to a bread roll.

This recipe is versatile and can be adapted to be flavoured with whatever you might have on hand. You can include any veggie/greens for more

Makes: 10-12 muffins
Baking time:
18-20 minutes
Preparation time:
10 minutes


  • Leftover Dosa batter-2cup
  • Carom seeds-1tsp
  • Finely chopped chilli-1tbsp
  • Finely chopped onion-1num
  • Grated carrot-1/2cup
  • Chopped coriander-a handful
  • Oil-to grease the muffins
  • Baking soda-1/4tsp
