BM #137 Week 4 Day 2 - 

For today, I present these Watermelon Rind dosas which has been in my to-do list forever. They are also known as Kalingana Polo,  I have adopted a mixture of recipes from the web to come up with my own combination of ingredients to suit our dietary needs.

I have substituted foxtail millet for idli rice and have fermented only for 5-6 hours. There was no after taste of the watermelon if anyone is wondering. :)

Ingredients - 

Foxtail Millet 1 cup
Watermelon rind, shredded 1 cup (Only the white part)
Coconut, shredded handful
Salt as needed
Oil to shallow fry the dosas

Method Of Preparation -

Wash and soak foxtail millet for 5-6 hours. Grind into a fine batter adding shredded coconut and shredded watermelon rind.

Set aside the batter for fermentation.

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 30 minutes + Batter prep time and fermentation time 10 hrs 
Makes 10-12

  4. I have made this dosa with rice. Making with millets is a good idea as it is more nutritious. I would give a try and I love the entire series of dosa. I feel like moving right next to you. Awesome recipes!
