BM #133 Week 3 Day 3 - 

Here is another millet based dosa which is a regular at home. These turn out just as the regular rice based dosas. I find it is very easy to introduce millets to the family in the form of Dosa and Idli.

Here are the posts in the A-Z Dosa series so far..

Ingredients - 

Little Millet 1 cup (240 ml cup)
Urad Dal 1/2 cup
Poha/Atukulu handful
Fenugreek Seeds 1/2 tsp
Salt as needed

Method Of Preparation -

Wash and soak Little millet for about 4-6 hours.

Wash and soak Urad Dal and fenugreek seeds for about 4 hours.

Wash and soak poha for 10 minutes before grinding.

Drain and blend the urad dal - methi seeds mixture into a fine batter adding as little water as needed.

Drain and blend the Little millet and poha into a coarse batter adding as little water as needed.

Combine both the batters, add salt as needed and mix well.

Cover and set aside in a warm place for a few hours for fermentation. [I fermented it for 14 hours].

On a hot griddle / tawa, pour a ladle full of batter and spread it into a thin circle. Spray some oil all over. Let the dosa cook.

Flip onto the other side and allow it to cook for a few seconds. 

Remove and continue with the rest of the batter. 

Serve it hot with a chutney of your choice.


Preparation Time 20 minutes + Soaking time 4-5 hours + Fermenting time 14 hours
Makes 16-20
