Schezwan Dosa Recipe

Schezwan Dosa Recipe is an Indo Chinese twist to the regular South Indian dosa. This Dosa is simply filled with Stir-Fried Vegetables and Schezwan Sauce.


  • 2 cup Dosa Batter
  • 1/2 cup Schezwan Sauce
  • 1 cup cabbage, shredded
  • 1 small onion, sliced
  • 1/2 cup carrot, shredded
  • 1 capsicum, sliced
  • 2 green chilies, finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger, finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp Soya sauce (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon oil for cooking the filling of dosa
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil or butter to roast dosa


  1. Take about 2 cups of dosa batter, adjust with some salt and mix well. Make it lump free and keep it aside.
  2. Heat 1/2 teaspoon oil in a pan/kadai and add 1/2 teaspoon chopped ginger and 1/2 teaspoon chopped garlic. Saute for a few second and then quickly add 1 cup shredded cabbage, 1/2 cup shredded carrot, 2 fine chopped green chilies, 1 small sliced onion and 1 sliced capsicum. Toss the vegetables with some salt on medium high flame, just like we do for making other Indo-Chinese Recipes.
  3. Add 1/4 teaspoon soy sauce and 2 tablespoon of Schezwan Sauce. Mix well and leave to cook for 2-3 minutes on low flame. The crunchiness of vegetables is to be maintained and hence do not over cook the vegetables.
  4. Now turn off the gas and heat a griddle or tawa for making dosa. Clean the tawa with water and damp it with clean kitchen napkin. Pour about one ladle (Big Spoon) of dosa batter in the middle of tawa and spread in a circular motion to form a thin sized dosa. Cook it over high heat for a couple of minutes, just like we do for making other Dosa Recipes.
  5. Drizzle few drops of oil on all over the edges and keep cooking.
  6. Now when dosa is almost ready, slow down the flame and sprinkle about 1/4 teaspoon of oil or butter over it, spread 1 teaspoon of schezwan sauce in the center.
  7. Spread about 1 tablespoon of prepared Schezwan Veggie mixture on it and let it roast for one more minute, till it turns golden brown and crispy. Do not over roast it, as it will be difficult to fold then.
  8. Remove it from the tawa and cut into desired pieces.
  9. Serve it either as it is or you can serve this dosa with Coconut Chutney and Sambar.
  10. Make rest of dosas in similar way and serve them immediately.


Cut the rolled dosa and serve hot immediately. You do not need any side dish for this dosa.

Chef Tips:

  1. You can use homemade or ready available batter of dosa for making this dosa at home, but make sure to spread it very thin.
  2. You can add boiled noodles in schezwan stuffing. Kids will love it.
  3. Spring onions can be also added in the stuffing. It gives more flavor to the dosa.
  4. If you want your dosa to be super spicy, then you can add a tsp of Red Chili Sauce while making the veg schezwan filling.
  5. I used my non stick tawa to prepare this dosa, because my usual roti making tawa would make it very crispy, and then it would have become difficult for me to fold it or cut it, so if you have dosa making tawa or a nice non-stick tawa/pan, then please go ahead with that.


  1. I often make these kind of dosa’s. One think you will not be able to get is the crust of dosa, which requires lots of experience.
