It has been quite a while since I prepared dosas at home. I have been using quinoa very often these days and I was kind of getting a little bored with the routine Quinoa Biryani and Masala Quinoa. Don't we all resort to 'culinary experiments' only when we get bored of the routine? In that frame of mind,  I was thinking about how else I could use quinoa in our Indian style when I heard a friend mention about dosas with quinoa. Thats when I came up with this Multi grain dosa. I later came across many blogs where quinoa has been used to make dosas. One such blog is I am just about discovering the versatile nature of this wonder grain. And so I guess we could tinker around with the proportion of ingredients to get different textures. Here is how we ate dosas for breakfast.

Multi Grain Dosa

Ingredients - 

Rice 1 Cup
*Urad Dal 1/2 cup 
Rolled Oats 1/2 cup
Rolled Barley Flakes 1/2 cup
Quinoa Dry Roasted 1/2 cup
Fenugreek seeds (Menthulu) 1/2 tsp
Salt as per taste

*I used whole urad dal (the black dal with skin)

Method Of Preparation - 

Soak all the top 6 ingredients for about 3-4 hrs. (Whole urad dal needs atleast 12 hrs of soaking time).

Grind the soaked grains to a fine paste adding water as needed to make dosa batter. Add salt and mix well. The dosa tastes well if fermented for about 6-7 hrs but it is not necessary. (I tried both the ways and it didn't change the taste/texture of the dosas).

On a hot tava, drop a ladleful and spread the batter around in a circular shape quickly into a thin layer. Spray a little bit of oil if needed. (I don't use any oil as I use a non-stick pan)

After the dosa browns enough on one side, flip it onto the other side and let it cook for another 30 seconds or so and take the dosa off the pan.

Continue until required number of dosas are done. The left over batter can be refrigerated for further use.

Also sending these Dosas to Priya's CWF-WG:Quinoa Event.
