BM #134 Week 3 Day 1 - 

This week I shall continue the A-Z Dosa series with the starting letters of M, N and O.

Today's dosa can be made with regular Dosa batter using rice. I have made this with Kodo millet Dosa batter. The addition of methi leaves enhances the flavor and I am sure this will occupy a special place in our menu from now on.

Ingredients - 

Methi leaves finely chopped 1-1.5 cups
Onions finely chopped 1/2 cup
Coriander leaves finely chopped 1/4 cup
Ginger, grated 1 tsp
Green Chilies finely chopped 2 tsp
Cumin Seeds 1 tsp
Asafotida 1/4 tsp
Oil to shallow fry Dosas
For Dosa Batter - 
Urad Dal 3/4 cup
Koda Millet 2 cups
Chana Dal handful
Poha handful
Methi Seeds 1 tsp

Method Of Preparation -

Wash and soak Kodo millet for about 4-6 hours.

Wash and soak Urad Dal, Chana Dal and fenugreek seeds for about 4 hours. Wash and soak poha for 10 minutes.

Drain and blend the urad dal - chana dal - methi seeds mixture into a fine batter adding as little water as needed.

Drain and blend the Kodo millet and poha into a coarse batter adding as little water as needed.

Combine both the batters, add salt as needed and mix well.

Cover and set aside in a warm place for a few hours for fermentation. [I fermented it for 14 hours].

When it is Dosa time, mix in the Methi leaves, Onions, Coriander leaves, Ginger, Green Chilies, Cumin Seeds and Asafotida into the batter. Add the salt as needed. Mix well and add water to adjust the batter consistency.

On a hot griddle / tawa, pour a ladle full of batter and spread it into a thin circle. Spray some oil all over. Cover, and 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.
