BM 138 Week 3 Day 1 - 

This week I shall conclude the A-Z Dosa Series for this year. So to include the dosa starting with Y, I have chosen to use the letter yellow for this unique chana dal dosa where I have replaced rice with millet.

I have used Kodo Millet here but any other millet can be easily substituted. Rice was used in the original recipe.

Ingredients - 

Chana Dal 1 cup
Kodo Millet 1/2 - 3/4 cup
Urad Dal 1/2 cup
Fenugreek Seeds 1 tsp
Turmeric 1/2 tsp
Salt as needed
Oil to shallow fry the Dosas

Method Of Preparation -

Wash and soak Chana dal, U
rad Dal and fenugreek seeds in a pot with about 6 cups of water for 5-6 hours.

In another pot, wash and soak the millet for 5-6 hours.

Drain the dals and blend into a fine paste. Add the drained millet and blend until grainy. Add as little water as needed.

Add salt and set aside in a warm place for fermentation. Depending on the temperature of the location, fermentation might take anywhere between 5-15 hours. It usually takes about 8-10 hours for me.

After the batter is fermented, adjust the consistency of the dosa. It should be slightly runny. Mix in the turmeric and whisk well. 

On a heated tava(griddle), pour a ladleful of batter and spread it thin in a circular motion. Spray some oil to the edges of the dosa. 

Gently flip the dosa and cook for a few seconds so the underside is just about cooked.

Continue with the rest of the batter. Refrigerate any left over batter.

Serve with any choice of chutney.


Preparation Time 30 minutes + Soaking, grinding and fermentation time 15-16 hours
Makes 20-24 dosas
