Barnyard Millet Adai Dosa /Kuthiraivali Adai Dosai

For the day 2 of Blogging Marathon#49 under Indian bread basket theme I am sharing an instant dosa/adai with millet.
As dosa is also considered as flat bread we are allowed to share a dosa recipe for the theme.
Coming to the recipe,I made the adai/dosa with the ingredients,used to make regular adai instead rice barnyard millet is used.
This adai can be made thick like the regular adai as well as thin crepe.I made both the ways and tastes delicious.Addition of shallots make this adai so flavorful and yummy,if not substitute with the regular onion.Lets move on to the recipe...............................

  • Wash and soak the dhals and barnyard millet separately,even add the add red chilly also with the dhal or rice.Let it soak for 2- 3 hours.After soaking completely drain the water and grind the red chilly and barnyard millet for 30 seconds with little water.Now add the soaked dhal and grind it to a bit coarse paste.

  • Transfer the ground batter to a bowl,to this add the finely chopped shallots,curry leaves and coriander leaves. Add in salt and asafoetida and mix it well,adjust the consistency with water. Heat a griddle in a medium flame,once the griddle becomes hot pour a ladle full of batter and spread it. 

  • Drizzle a tsp of oil and cook it for a minute or two,till it becomes golden.Flip it to the other side and cook it for couple of minutes,drizzle another tsp of oil. Remove it from the flame.

  • Serve it with coconut chutney and sambar or pickle.

  • To make it like a crepe,make the batter slightly thin and pour it from outside of the griddle to in and fill the gaps.
  • Keep the flame in a medium to get a nice crispy edges.
  • Grated carrot and coconut can also be added.
  • Here I didn't add ginger or garlic,if you want feel free to add a clove of garlic and a small piece of ginger. 
  • As my red chillies are not spicy I used 6.
