Sorghum-Dosai - Cholam-Dosai

#SorghumDosai  #CholaDosai : #Sorghum is known as #cholam in Tamil. It is called #Jowar in Hindi and #Jola in Kannada. Sorghum grows in dry area as rain fed crop and one of the widely grown #millet in India.
It has vitamins like niacin, thiamin, riboflavin and minerals like magnesium, iron, calcium, phosphorous, potassium and copper. Apart from vitamins and minerals it is also a  protein rich food.
We have already seen the method of preparing sorghum idli and cholam kuzhi paniyaram.
Here let me present the method of making dosai with sorghum.

Sorghum Dosai [ Chola Dosai ]


Ingredients :
To Soak :
1 cupSorghum [ cholam ]
1 cupIdli Rice
1/2 cupUrad dhall [ black gram ]
1/2 TspFenugreek
To add :
2 TbspRawa [ sooji ]
2 TspSalt

Method :
Take all the given ingredients in a vessel.
Wash two or three times with water.
Then add enough water and soak for 3 hours.

After three hours wash the wet grinder.
Then add the soaked ingredients and enough water.
Grind into a smooth batter adding water.

Transfer into a big vessel.
Wash the grinder with 1/4 cup of water and pour that also into the batter.
Add salt and mix well with hand.
The batter should be slightly watery than the sorghum idli batter.
Keep it closed in a warm place and allow to ferment for 6 to 8 hours or overnight.

After fermentation add rawa and mix well.
Allow the batter to stand for half an hour.

After that heat a tawa on a stove over medium heat.
Grease the tawa with oil.
Once the tawa becomes hot spread dosai batter on it using a ladle.
Sprinkle oil over and around the rim of the dosai.
Flip the dosai when edge becomes golden in color.
Then transfer on to a plate.
Again grease the tawa and make one more dosai.
Serve hot with any coconut chutney or sambar or kadappa.
