BM #94 Week 1 Day 1 - 

Welcome to yet another edition of BM. In the first week of this edition, I have chosen to highlight some recipes where millets can be used.

Sanna Polo happens to be a Vegetable and Rice based Dosa from the Konkani cuisine. Here instead of rice, my friend and fellow blogger, Sowmya has substituted some of the rice portion with millets and I found it to be very interesting and tried it right away. 

In these dosas, cabbage has been used but it can be substituted with drumstick leaves, palak, or any other vegetable of your choice. The play of the spices and vegetables definitely alters the taste and can enjoy the goodness of the ingredients.

I served this for breakfast and is a perfect one for a weekday breakfast. This is a no-ferment dosa.

Ingredients - 

Foxtail Millets 3/4 cup 
Rice 1/2 cup
Grated Coconut 3 Tbsp
Dried Red chillies 2
Tamarind extract 1 Tbsp
Cabbage, Shredded 1/2 cup
Onion, finely chopped 1/2 cup
Coriander Leaves, finely chopped 2 Tbsp
Salt as needed
Oil for shallow frying as needed

Method Of Preparation -

Soak rice and millets overnight. 

Grind them with as little water as needed adding grated coconut, red chilies, tamarind extract and salt.

Into the batter, add the finely chopped cabbage, onion and coriander leaves.

Adjust the consistency of the batter so it is pourable.

On a heated griddle, pour a ladleful of batter and spread in a circular fashion .

Drizzle oil as needed and allow it to cook. Once the underside is cooked through, flip it carefully and cook on the other side as well drizzling oil as needed.

Remove on to a serving platter and continue with the rest of the batter.


Preparation Time 20 minutes
Makes 10-12
