Preparing healthy breakfast is one of the task for ladies who have adopted some healthy concepts. Thinking of healthy, protein rich and yummy dish that should accommodate each member of the family. I my self think some healthy options and do prepare healthy breakfast for my family. This is such one dish which is very healthy.


I have used millet flour, moong dal, urid dal and a special chutney which is very easy to prepare and healthy to eat it.

Having  Pepper in your diet helps to keep away Alzheimer disease.

This dosa is filled with proteins and less carbohydrates and easy to prepare, healthy to have them and is one of the diabetic friendly Dosa.
Let us see the recipe now :

Things Needed :

Moong dal : 1/4 Cup
Urid dal : 1/2 Cup
Millet flour : 1/2 Cup
Pepper pods : 2 to 4.
Salt : As required
Curd : 2 Tablespoons
Oil : 2 to 3 Tablespoons

Method :

1. Wash and soak moong and urid dal together for 2 hours and grind it with 2 to 4 pepper pods.


2.Use required water to grind and remove the batter to a big bowl.

3. Put little water and mix millet flour and add this batter to moong - urid batter. Add required salt,          2 tablespoons of curd and mix it well.


4. Add little water to the batter and mix it well and the consistency should be normal dosa batter.

5. Keep a pan on the fire and heat. Clean the pan nicely with a kitchen tissue. ( Let the flame be low ).
6. Take a ladle full of dosa batter and spread it on the pan in circle shape.

7. Sprinkle little oil on the top of dosa and cook on medium and low flame for 1 to 2 minutes.
8. Turn dosa on other side and cook for 20 to 30 seconds.

9. Dosa is ready to serve. Serve with your choice of side dish.

10. Repeat the same with remaining dosa batter.

11. You can ferment the batter for 5 to 6 hours and then prepare dosa. It turns crispy and golden colour.

12. We had these Millet /Jola - Moong - Urid Dal Dosa with  chutney pudi chatney and jaggery. .


Note :

Adding curd to batter turns the batter bit soft. You can add little cooking soda. ( Optional, I have not added). Add little water to millet flour and mix it well and then add it to urid - moong dal batter. It helps to mix all the ingredients well. Use of ghee instead of oil is optional. I have used oil.
Sprinkle water on tava each time and clean the tava, it helps to reduce the heat of the pan and you can spread the batter nicely on tava/pan. One should adjust the batter to dosa batter consistency and then make dosa. Do not pour batter on hot tava, it sticks to the ladle and you may not be able to spread the batter into thin dosa. ( Do not put your weight on ladle.
Sprinkle oil on the dosa not on pan. Sprinkle oil on tava will not allow you to spread the dosa easily. It turns thick  and the batter sticks to ladle. Let the flame be low while pouring the dosa batter to tava. And then spread it easily and lightly.
Time : 2 hours + 30 Minutes.
Serves : 2 to 3 

Curd - Chutneypudi Chutney :

Mix 2 to 3 tablespoons of chutney pudi to 2 to 3 tablespoons of curd and mix it well. Season with mustard, curry leaves and ingh. Add this seasoning and little salt to the chutney you prepared and serve.
Time : 5 Minutes.

Navane /Foxtail Millet Crispy Dosa

Dosa/Dose is one of the good breakfast dish that most of us love to have it. It is healthy and loaded with urid dal and it is full of protein and energetic pulse. This time I have added  toor dal and channa dal to the batter while grinding. Dosa has tuned crispy and got golden colour.


The other secret is that you should keep the dough in the fridge at least 10 minutes before you prepare dosa. (After fermentation).
Fox tail millet is full of fiber, energetic and it is one of the siri dhanya/Millet. Millets help us to control blood pressure and is good for people who are suffering from diabetic problem.
Let us see the recipe Now :

Ingredients : 

Navane/Foxtail millet : 4 Cups
Urid dal : 1 Cup
Methi : 1 Teaspoon
Channa dal : 1 Tablespoon
Toor dal : 1 Tablespoon
Avalakki /Aval/Flattened rice : 2 to 3 Handful /3/4 Cup
Salt : As required
Oil /Ghee : 3 to 4 Tablespoons


Method :

1. Clean and wash Navane /Fox tail millet, methi seeds, avalakki, toor dal, channa dal and  urid dal.
2. Grind all the ingredients nicely till paste.( I have used the grinder to prepare the batter).
3. Remove it from the grinder and add salt. Mix it well and let it ferment well. (Over night).


4. Next day morning keep this fermented the fridge for 20 minutes.
5. Take the batter out from fridge and mix it well.

6. Keep tava/dosa pan on the fire. Let it get hot.
7. Reduce the flame. Sprinkle little water on the hot tava and clean it well.
8. Mix dosa batter well and take a ladle of batter and put it on the tava.
9. Spread the batter around the pan and put a teaspoon of oil on the dosa. (Sprinkle oil on the top).


10.Cover and cook dosa for a minute. Turn the other side and cook for a minute. (Optional).

11. Dosa is ready to serve. Serve with your choice of side dish. Repeat the same and prepare the rest of the dosas. (Remaining batter).


12. Add a spoon of fresh ghee just before serving hot dosa.


Note : 

Do not try to spread dosa batter on very hot tava. It might stick to the pan and the ladle and it will be messy. Decrease the heat by sprinkling some normal water on tava and reduce the flame to low. Clean the tava completely with a kitchen tissue or clean towel. Adjust the batter consistency and pour the batter and spread it slowly
  Add little water if the batter is so thick. It should be into running consistency. ( Not very watery). Keep the flame very low while pouring the batter to the pan. Do not add oil first. Spread the dosa batter around and then sprinkle oil. This helps the dosa to be crispy.
Adding little channa dal and toor dal helps the dosa to be crispy. Keeping the ferment batter in the fridge helps in turning dosa very crispy and adds the golden colour.
cooking dosa on one side is optional. ( It gets cooked nicely once you cover the lid while cooking).

Time : Soaking Navane and urid dal 3 hours + grinding 20 minutes + fermentation Over night/5 to 6 hours and dosa preparation 30 Minutes.
Serves : 20 to 25 Dosa.
