jowar dosai

#JowarDosai : When we were living in Bangalore, a few families of construction workers were our neighbours. They were from North Karnataka region. Daily morning we used to hear a rhythmic sound tappa, tappa.... tap.. tap.. tap....
We were wondering what that sound could be!! One day I asked them and they told that they were making roti from Jowar flour. Then I bought jowar flour from market and tried to make #dosai. The dosai came out nicely and tasty too.
Jowar is known as #cholam in Tamil. It is called #sorghum in English. The scientific name of #jowar is Sorghum bicolor.
Here is the recipe for jowar dosai and the ingredients are enough for 4 dosais.
