After trying kambu dosai, I am yet to try idli dosa by grinding other millets but this instant millet dosa sure was a great quick fix for our breakfast and is handy when you don’t have idli dosa batter in hand.
Millet Flour Dosa Recipe
Recipe Category: Breakfast | Recipe Cuisine: South Indian
Millet Flour – 1/2 cup
Rice Flour – 1/4 cup
Big Onion – 1 small sized finely chopped
Curry Leaves – 1 tbsp finely chopped
Green Chilli – 1 small chopped finely
Water – 3/4 to 1 cup(adjust)
Oil – as required to toast
Salt – to taste
- In a mixing bowl – add millet flour,rice flour,onion,curry leaves, chilli and required salt.Mix it well.Then add water little by little.
- Mix it well using a whisk without any lumps.It should be runny so that while we pour the batter should spread by itself.Now the batter is ready.
- Heat a dosa tawa, take a laddle full of batter and pour it first in the outer circle, then pour to fill in the center to fill the uncovered areas like how we do for rava dosa.Cook in mediium flame.The dosa should be thin so don’t pour over then we will get thick dosas.Drizzle oil and cook until the top looks cooked.Fold and serve hot.
Your dosa is ready! Serve with idli podi / any chutney of your choice.
- You can use any millet flour for this even ragi flour.
- The batter should be very runny.The water measure I’ve given is not accurate, I’ve given it just to give an idea.
- Also you should not spread the batter, the laddle should not touch the dosa tawa itself.Hold the laddle about 10 cm height above the dosa tawa and start pouring.
- Always use a deep curved laddle while pouring as it holds more and will cover the puter circle fully in one go.Then again you can take the batter another time to fill in the center areas.
- It is very important that the dosa tawa should be really hot. When you pour you should see the batter spreading by itself with tiny holes in it that the right contistency of the batter and it shows the dosa tawa is perfect for making dosas.
- You can even pour few drops of water to check if the dosa pan is hot.If you hear a bold shh sound then the dosa tawa is ready.
- After you make 2-3 dosas check the batter, if it becomes thick adjust by adding little water.
- I didn’t flip the dosas as it got cooked easily but if you can flip over cook and serve.
- I used my cast iron dosa pan.
