My second trial using thinai / foxtail millet is this Thinai Dosa. The previous one is of Thinai payasam. Dosa came out very crispy and tasty too.
Try it out to include this healthy millet in your daily routine for a healthy living!
Thinai / Foxtail millet - 1½ cup
Idli Rice - ½ cup
Urad dhal - ½ cup
Fenugreek seeds - ½ tsp
Salt – to taste
Directions:Wash and soak Thinai / Foxtail millet, rice, urad dhal and fenugreek seeds in water for about 4 to 5 hours.
Grind everything together to fine paste.
Transfer it to a separate container; add salt and mix well. Allow to ferment for nearly 5 to 7 hours or overnight.
Heat the dosa pan; pour a ladle full of batter and spread it in circular motion from inside.
Remove dosa from the pan and serve hot with Coconut Chutney ( with Red Chilli and Garlic)
or Tomato Garlic Chutney.
Thinai / foxtail millet dosa tend to ferment fast than our normal idli batter, check it according to your climatic condition.
You can also use raw rice instead of idli rice to prepare this dosa.
