Instant Millet Flour Dosa Recipe - Easy Millet Recipes

Instant Millet Flour Dosa Recipe
Millet Flour Dosa is instant and quick to make for breakfast.Amma bought a pack of millet flour and bajra flour last month and both of the packs were sitting idle, so she asked me to use it.So today morning I made millet flour dosa and it came out so good that hubby liked it soo much.I adapted the recipe given at the back of the pack with few adjustments to suit our taste.I served it with spicy poondu chutney and idli podi.

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.

My Notes:

  • 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.
