Wheat - Millet - Urid Dosa

Wheat - Millet /Jola - Urid Dosa is a healthy breakfast or snack food. It is simple and quick. It is diet, diabetic friendly Dosa and every one can enjoy having this dosa.


I have used urid dal, Wheat flour and Millet flour.
I have done in this way. Soak Urid dal and grind. In a bowl mix Millet and wheat flour with little water and grind it with required water. Now mix urid dal batter and mixed flour batter. Add required salt. Leave it for 5 minutes. Healthy Wheat - Millet - Urid dal dosa batter is ready to prepare dosa. The batter can be used as soon as you grind  or it can be fermented for 5 to 6 hours and then prepare dosa. The fresh batter turns dosa soft and the fermented batter helps the dosa to be crispy.
Diabetic Friendly, diet friendly, Millet Dosa / Dose is good for breakfast / snack or even dinner.
Let us see the recipe now :

Ingredients :

Urid dal : 1/2 Cup
Wheat flour : 1 Cup
Millet flour : 1 Cup
Salt : As required

Hello Every one ..Happy New Year 2019.

Let us begin the year with simple, healthy and quick Wheat Flour - Dry Fruits Laddu.


Laddu/Laadu / Unde all are the different names for sweet roundels.
Here I have tried wheat flour and dry fruits like anjur /figs, walnuts, raisins and coconut.
Added jaggery to give more sweet taste because wheat flour needs little more sweets. Dates do adds sweet and nutritious properties. I have added dates also.
These Wheat Flour Laddu is good to have at any time of the day. It is good for  kids snack box or as evening snack. Good for taking it for tour or when you are travelling. It is good for elders and diabetic people. ( Reduce the sweetness if you are serving to diabetic people.

Then add wheat flour and other ingredients. Adding more ghee is optional. Add more ghee if you find to make laddu. ( If it turns dry ). Adding rose petals adds to the taste and aroma.

Chapatis/Rotis/Indian bread is a staple food for many Indians.. That too it is a must food for some people. I have tried here some soft Chapatis and it is yummy too. You too try and enjoy that is what I want to say.

North India  and Punjabis and Chapatis, that is what it was to be. I mean only the North Indians and Punjabis used to have chapatis regularly. We South Indians rarely used to make chapatis in those days. Making chapatis was a big news and what ever you do it used to turn hard or dry in our home.
Punjab is known as wheat cradle since the growth of wheat is highest.
Making chapatis or eating chapatis are good for diet is a well known version now. These Indian breads of different varieties, have got very famous in these days. Even some doctors suggest the people to have chapatis instead of rice because rice digest easily and you get hungry soon. That might be true. Eating wheat helps to stay full for a long time.
Anyways chapati turns soft and fluffy and we have become experts these days.
Soft Chapatis are good for any age group and it helps to digest the food easily.
I have used wheat flour, little oil, very little coriander leaves and a boiled potato to prepare these soft chapatis. They are healthy and energetic. Remember boiled potatoes are good for every one. Even the diabetic people also can have boiled potato in limit proportion.
Adding boiled potatoes make the chapati really soft and fluffy.
