Millet (Jola) & Urid Dal Dosa

Millet (Jola) & Urid dal dosa is a healthy dish and we can enjoy these dosas for breakfast or as an evening snack. Millet is one of the best grain which has no gluten in it.

I have used Urid dal, millet flour and prepared dosas. I tried dosas just after mixing it. (with out fermentation), and after fermentation also.You can have your imagination in healthy way and prepare dosas and enjoy.
Lets see some benefits of using Millet in our diet.
Millet helps to protect our heart health, diabetes and improve digestive system. It boost respiratory health and increase our energy level. They are full of B vitamin, iron, calcium, potassium, Zinc and magnesium. They also contain essential fats. Millet is full of dietary fiber and protein. They help to control blood pressure level and cholesterol level in our body.

There are three varieties of dosa with same dough. First one is, I have tried dosa immediately after grinding. The second one is left the dough to ferment and then prepared dosa. The third one is I have used some carrots, coriander leaves, coconut and curry leaves. Just top up and prepared dosa. All the varieties are nice and you can try and enjoy these healthy dosas.
