10 dosas

Dosas are traditional Indian pancakes or crepes made from soaked and fermented whole grains and beans. They make a great bread replacement! Making dosas is a two-part process—first you soak the grains and beans overnight, then you blend them into a batter and let it ferment. This is one of the most digestible ways to prepare grains and beans. Replace the black beans with adzuki beans, mung beans, black-eyed peas, or chickpeas if desired.

Preparation Note

At least 48 hours before you would like to cook the dosas, soak the grains and beans for 24 hours. Then blend the grains and beans to make a batter and let this ferment for 24 to 48 additional hours (see directions).


Day 1

1½ cups uncooked quinoa
¾ cups uncooked adzuki beans
1 tablespoons raw apple cider vinegar
warm filtered water (to cover)

Day 2

1½ cups filtered water
1 teaspoons sea salt
