Whole Wheat Dosa – This recipe was totally a new one when I came to know initially. Whole wheat contains the complete nutrition compared to atta flour. This was first tried by my friend cum sis Karthika where she told that it came out really excellent and perfectly tasty too. I am totally against wheat dosa made from atta/wheat flour but this recipe has totally driven me into the side.
Ingredients of Whole Wheat Dosa:
- Whole wheat – 200 gms
- Urad dal batter – 2 handful (I usually take the this while grinding for idli batter)
- Salt – 1 tbsp
Method of Preparation of Whole Wheat Dosa:
- Measure the whole wheat.
- Wash well in water.
- Soak for about 8 hours or overnight
- Grind using a wet grinder.
- Sprinkle adequate water in between the process and grind until smooth.
- Take out the batter and keep aside. (Do not be panic if the consistency is elastic)
- Next step I grind urad dal for making Idli batter. (From this we have to take 2 handful as stated in ingredient)
- Take the urad dal batter into the wheat batter and mix well nicely.
- The batter consistency would be normal flowing.
- Heat a dosa tawa and spread the dosa with a spoon of batter.
- Flip other side too and let it cook.
- Serve with any Kuzhambu/Curry varieties which would be a suitable combination.
- Whenever I grind batter for Idli I regularly grind variety of batter for making dosa like Millets dosa batter, Chollam dosa batter, Red Sorghum/Sivappu Cholla dosai batter
- I usually gring so to get additional ingredient in diet also in one shot I can finish of cleaning my grinder.
- If you wanted to grind only for wheat dosa, Just wash 1/4 cup of urad dal and add to the grinder along with wheat.
- This batter does not require any fermentation so your dosa batter is ready once you finished grindings
- Its more healthy and tasty too. This dosa doesn’t get dry soon.
