Thinai Dosai

#ThinaiDosai  #FoxtailMilletDosai : #Thinai belongs to millet family and it is called #FoxtailMillet in English.

Millets are nutritious, non-glutinous & not acid forming foods.
I bought thinai from Nilgiris supermarket, Chennai and tried various recipes.
But this dosai came out very well and tastes very good.
