Thinai-Neer-Dosai

#ThinaiNeerDosai  #FoxtailMilletNeerDosai : #Thinai is known as #FoxtailMillet in English. It is gluten free and non acidic forming food just like any other millet. It is rich in protein, iron and other minerals. Thinai is sweeter in taste compared to all other millet.
I tried Varagarisi Neer dosai a few days back. In the same way, this time I made neer dosai with Thinai. But added little sugar to the batter that gave a unique taste to the dosai.
Now over to the preparation.
Approximately 10 - 15 dosais can be prepared.

Ingredients :
1 cupThinai [ Foxtail Millet ]
1/3 cupCoconut scrapings
3/4 TspSalt
1 TspSugar
Gingelly Oil [ till/sesame oil ] to make dosai.

Method :
Take thinai [ foxtail millet ] in a vessel and wash two or three times.
Add enough water and soak for 2 hours.

After 2 hours wash the grinder.
Put soaked thinai and coconut scrapings into the grinder.
Grind into a smooth batter adding required amount of water.
The batter should be watery to get paper thin dosai.
Add salt & sugar and mix well.

Heat a tawa on a stove over a medium flame.
Grease the tawa with oil and allow to get hot.
When tawa becomes hot make dosai by pouring batter from rim of the tawa to its center.

Sprinkle oil over the dosai.
Allow it to cook until the rim becomes slightly golden color.
No need to flip the dosai to cook the top side.
Gently spread the oil using dosa ladle that we had sprinkled earlier over the top of the dosai.
Otherwise the dosai would become dry and develop cracks.
Transfer on to a serving plate.
In the same way make dosai one by one.
Arrange over a serving plate.
Serve hot with any spicy chutney of your choice or kurma.
