Sanna Pole (Cabbage dosa with Pulses)

This is a konkani dish that you may have never heard of before but many konkani people(people from karnataka-India) love is a batter where u prepare dosa(similar to pancakes) with cabbage and pulses.Try it i bet you will love it.


1/2 Cup split red lentils
1/4 cup rice
1/2 cup grated coconut
3-4 whole red chillies
1 cup cabbage shredded
1/2 cup onions chopped
1/4 tspn tamarind paste
1/2 inch ginger finely chopped
1/2 tspn turmeric powder
2 tbspn rice flour
A pinch of asefotida
Salt to taste
Oil for frying


Soak rice-redlentil pulses overnight or minimum of 5-6 hrs.

Wash and grind it in a fine paste.Dont use much water at once while grinding add little by little as much as required. Keep aside.

In a mixer take coconut, tamarind, red chillies, turmeric powder, asefotida and grind it.Take 1-2 scoops of above rice-lentil paste add it and grind it once more.Add this paste with the remaining rice-lentil paste.

Add chopped cabbage, onions, ginger , rice flour, salt to it and mix it well.

See the photo below for understanding the consistency of this batter.

Take a pan pour 1 tspn of oil at a time, pour a scoop of this batter and spread it on the pan.Pour little oil from side of the batter.Turn when it is brown from bottom and let it cook on the other side till brown.You may need to take guess when you want to add more oil from sides again.

See fried cabbage dosa pic above.

Remove it on paper towel to remove excess oil.

I make these dosa's small so it is easier to turn, you can also make small cutlets and fry if you wish.

Serve it with rice and curry or u can eat it as snack.....choice is your's to make.
