Bajra Dosai

#BajraDosai  #KambuDosai : #Bajra is called #Pearlmillet in English. It is known as #kambu in Tamil. In market we get bajra flour, broken bajra and bajra grain. Porridge and Pongal can be prepared from broken bajra. Bajra grain can be cooked like rice and  taken with sambar. I usually prepare #dosai with bajra flour combining with whole wheat flour.
Here let me present you the method of preparing dosai from bajra flour.  The given ingredients are enough to make approximately 8 dosas.

Keep the prepared batter aside for half an hour.
