Brown Rice & Quinoa Dosa

Quinoa is rich both in fiber and protein, had fewer calories and carbohydrates than white rice. On

 the other hand brown rice is recommended for a healthy diet because it contains extra nutrients,

 extra protein and fiber. It also lowers cholesterol and controls blood sugar levels. Today I will be

 preparing dosa with these 2 ingredients - Brown rice & Quinoa. Just as regular this needs to be

 soaked over night , grind to smooth batter and then ferment over night. This recipe goes to Week 4

 day 3 of Blogging Marathon 120 under the theme  "Kids Delight - Healthy Breakfast".


Brown rice 2 cups

Quinoa 1 cup

Udad dal 1/2 cup

Fenugreek seeds 1/2 tsp


Wash all the ingredients twice or thrice.

Soak in water for 8 hours or over night.

Blend the ingredients nice and smooth with little water.

Cover and let it ferment for 8 hours or overnight.

Once the batter is fermented well, add salt and mix well.

Heat a non stick tawa or dosa pan, pour 1-1 1/2 ladle full of batter and spread it in a circular motion.

Add some oil or ghee on top and let it cook for a minute or so.

When you see the dosa leaving the edges, slowly lift it with a spatula to flip on to other side.

Cook for a 30-40 seconds fold and serve hot.

Serve with potato curry, sambar or any type of chutney.
