Kambu(கம்பு தோசை) / Bajra Dosa / Pearl Millet Dosa

Kambu is a highly nutritious and tasty cereal.   It is easy digestible and is rich in fibre, minerals and vitamins. 

It is known by many names Sajje in Kannada, Kambu in Tamil, Bajra in Hindi, Sajjalu in Telugu, Kambam in Malayalam and Pearl Millet in English.


Pearl Millet / Kambu – 3 cup
Rice – 1 cup
Urad dhal – ½ cup
Fenugreek seeds – ½ tsp
Salt – to taste


Wash and soak rice, kambu, urad dhal and fenugreek seeds in water for nearly 4 hours.

Grind everything together to fine paste.

Transfer it to a separate container; add salt and mix well. Allow to ferment for nearly 8 to 10 hours or overnight.

Heat the dosa pan; pour a ladle full of batter and spread it in circular motion from inside.

Drizzle some oil over the dosa, close with the lid and allow it cook.

Remove dosa from the pan and serve hot with any spicy chutney, I prefer to have it with Tomato Garlic Chutney.
