BM #96 Week 1 Day 2 - 

"What is for dinner?", this is a common question many of us face. If you are avoiding rice for dinner and looking for alternatives, these dosas are perfect.

My kids prefer dosas to idlis and the adults in the house prefer the other way. So it is always a battle to please everyone at home at the same time. I end up making what the kids want and so Dosas are always the winners. But these dosas were a surprise. They came out really well.

Ingredients - 

Cracked Wheat 1 cup
Urad Dal 1/2 cup
Poha 1/4 cup
Fenugreek Seeds 1 tsp
Salt 1 tsp
Oil as needed 

Method Of Preparation -

Wash and soak cracked wheat, urad dal, fenugreek seeds and poha for 4-5 hours.

Drain and grind into a fine batter.

Add salt and set aside in a warm place for fermentation.

Whenever ready to make dosas, add sufficient water to adjust the consistency.

On a hot griddle, pour a ladleful of batter, spread it in circular shape and drizzle oil as needed.

Cook on both sides and repeat the process for more dosas. 

Serve with Chutney and Aloo Sabji.

Store the unused batter in the refrigerator.


Preparation Time 12 hours + cooking time 30-40 minutes
Makes 30-40 dosas
