Top 7 Best Non-Stick Dosa Tawas in India

 

Dosa Tawa is a popular kitchen tool in every Indian household. Originally, it was used only in the south Indian homes for cooking dosas, a common diet there.

Around some 50 years ago or so, dosa or dosa tawas were unknown to north Indian homes.  But, now it is not the case; both have become popular across the subcontinent.

A dosa is a rice pancake prepared from a fermented batter, a mixture of rice and black gram. It is served hot along with sambar (a lentil-based vegetable stew)  and chutney (a type of sauce made of coconut or dal).

To prepare dosa,  you need a dosa tawa also spelt tava. Dosa Tawa is a flat or concave disc-shaped frying pan or griddle.

Tawas are usually made of cast iron, aluminium, or carbon steel.

Non-stick Dosa Tawa

Non-stick Dosa Tawa comes with a special coating of polytetrafluoroethylene, also known as Teflon.  So, it is very easy to use and clean.  The special coating prevents food bonding with the surface of the dosa tawa.

It also allows you to cook food using a little or no oil.

But one main complaint about non-stick dosa tawa is that Teflon is toxic and harmful. Then, this complaint is common against all non-stick cookware and based on some unfounded facts and reports.  About the toxic story, there are also consumer reports that the problems with nonstick pans occur only after overheating the cookware.

Nevertheless, some poorly done coating runs the risk of flaking and getting ingested with food items. Also, while using metal tools for cooking dosa can scratch the surface of the tawa and hurt the coating and reduce its thickness.

However, reports reiterate the finding that faking or ingestion usually does not pose dangers to your health.

Still, you have to be careful with cheaper or poor-quality non-stick dosa tawas.
