Millets have been a staple in rural India from times immemorial, though the urban crowd has realised its benefits of late. They are a healthy option to eating rice or other carb rich food. This little millet and sago dosa is a crisp and crunchy one which can be enjoyed with fresh home made butter or with a coconut chutney. A special thanks to my sister in law Roopa Prabhu for her recipe.
- 500 gms Little millet/Varai/Samai
- 250 gms Sago Pearls/Sabudana
- 15 Green chillies
- 2 inch piece of ginger
- 1tbsp of Asafoetida /Hing
- 5 sprigs of curry leaves
- 1tbsp Cumin seeds /jeera
- A small bunch of coriander leaves
- Oil to roast the dosa
Soak the little millets and Sago for four hours. Grind to a smooth batter. Make a coarse paste of the green chillies and ginger. Chop the curry and coriander leaves fine. Tip in the ginger chilly paste, the chopped leaves, jeera, hing and salt into the batter. Add enough water to get a batter of free flowing consistency. It should be neither too thick nor runny. Keep it aside for an hour for the flavours to infuse. Heat a tava/skillet. Drizzle oil. Pour a ladleful of the batter and swish the Tava to spread the dosa. Do not use the ladle to spread. Drizzle with oil. Roast to a golden yellow. Flip and roast on the other side too. Serve hot with chutney.
