BM #136 Week 3 Day 3 - 

I thought I hit a road block with the Dosa for the letter U. I had Ulavala Dosa (Horsegram Dosa) noted down for the letter U. But I had made Horsegram Dosa earlier in the series. So I had to revise my list again and look for another recipe.

But a simple google search took me to this site where I came to know about Uppu Huli Dosa. Apparently it is a very famous recipe from the Udipi region. It is a sweet, spicy and tangy kind of dosa and is a very treasured recipe of the region. 

The original recipe used only rice, urad dal and fenugreek seeds for the Dosa batter. I have used the foxtail millet dosa batter instead. Also please note that the original recipe is a no ferment recipe whereas I am using a fermented Dosa batter.
