Dosas have earned quite a reputation. Also consumed as savory pancakes abroad, this food recipe is gut-friendly and nutritious. Processed in a food processor and combined with water, the mixture makes a thin batter that ferments until flavourful. The batter is spread out on a hot pan and cooked similar to a crepe until crisp and delicious. I just used the regular dosa recipe but enhanced it nutritionally with barnyard millet to it and it tases so well. This no-rice, barnyard millet dosa, is the best way to start if you haven’t yet included millets in your diet as they are gluten-free and diabetic friendly as well.

I have been trying different millet recipes like Organic Brown Rice Khichdi and Millet And Mushroom Risotto.

Here’s presenting to you a tried and tested recipe for barnyard millet (‘Kudhiravaali’ in Tamil) dosa, which all of us in our family love. These dosas contain absolutely no rice, and taste just like the regular ones – no one can tell the difference! They are supposed to be more filling, yet lighter on the digestive system than the rice-based dosas.
