#ThinaiDosai #FoxtailMilletDosai : #Thinai is called #FoxtailMillet in English. We have already seen how to prepare dosai using the whole grain of Thinai. Here we are going to see how to prepare dosai using Thinai Flour ( Thinai maavu ). There is a taste difference between the one done with grains and the one done with flour.

Thinai Dosai [ Foxtail Millet Dosai ]


Ingredients :
3/4 cup                             Whole Wheat Flour
1/2 cup                             Thinai Flour
3 Tbsp                              Idly or Dosai Batter
1/2 Tsp                                      Salt

Mix all the ingredients with a cup of water and keep aside.
The batter should be watery. If required add some more water also.


To mix with batter :
1 or 2 Tbsp                                Onion nicely chopped
1 Tbsp                                        Carrot grated ( optional )

1 Tsp                                         Cumin
Oil to make dosai.

Method :
Mix all the above ingredients with prepared batter.
Heat a tawa over a medium flame and spread 1/2 Tsp of oil over it.
When tawa becomes hot pour a ladle of batter from outer to inner.
The method of making dosai here is different from usual dosai.
That is make dosai by forming an outer circle along the rim and then filling it up.
Sprinkle drops of oil over the surface of the dosai
When the rims of the dosai turns slightly golden flip and cook the other side.
When both sides are done transfer onto a serving plate.
