Millet Dosa for Blog Birthday



I started this blog in 2008, and this is the first  time I'm celebrating it. I started cooking only after marriage and I'm no expert in cooking. I have a long way to go. But this journey has been nice, I have met so many people who have gone on to become very good friends. I must thank the blogging community for all the support, I could not have done much with out you guys. I thank all my readers and blog friends who encourage me with their constant comments.  Instead of making something sweet I decided to do something healthy for a change. Do check the recipe.

Ingredients

Millets
Thinai (Italian Millet)-1/4 cup
Samai (Little Millet)-1/4 cup
Varagu (Kodo Millet)-1/4 cup
Ragi (Finger Millet)-1 fistful
Kambu(Pearl Millet)-1 fistful
 
Dals
Bengalgram Dal-1 fistful-(optional)
Green Gram Dal-1/2 cup
Toor Dal-2 fistfuls
Urad Dal-2 fistfuls

Other ingredients
Asafoetida-2 pinched
Red Chillies-3-4
Garlic-4-5pods
Pepper-1 teaspoon
Ginger-Half an inch
Coriander and Curry leaves
Salt to taste

Soak the millets and dals for four to five hours. Grind all ingredients to a smooth consistency and prepare thin dosas. This is an incredibly healthy recipe. Thinai, Samai and Varagu are traditional millets and are a good source of proteins, fibre and calcium. They are also filling and is good for diabetics. Even Barnyard Millet or Kuthiravaali millet can be added to make dosa. Serve with chutney of choice.
