#KuthiraivaaliNeerDosai : Ever since I made #NeerDosai sometime back I have become a great fan of it. It is very easy to make and no need to ferment the batter. It only requires the time to get soaked in water. #Neerdosai can be made as soon the batter has been ground. Its very tasty and goes well with any spicy chutney or gravy.
Last week again I tried neer dosai using #Kuthiraivaali. Kuthiraivaali is known as #Barnyardmillet in English. Generally millets are non glutenous and non acid forming cereals. Barnyard millet is rich in minerals especially its iron content is more compared to other generally used cereals like rice and wheat. It is advisable to include millet in our daily diet.
Here comes the recipe to prepare Kuthiraivaali neer dosai.
Approximately 15 - 20 dosai can be prepared from the ingredients given here.

kuthiraivaali neer dosai [ barnyard millet neer dosai ]

Ingredients :
2 cupKuthiraivaali [ Barnyard millet ]
1/2 cupCoconut scraping
2 TspSalt
1 TspSugar

Oil to make dosai.
[ I used gingelly oil { til/sesame oil} which gives a nice aroma and taste to the dosai. ]

Method :
Wash kuthiraivaali thoroughly 2 to 3 times.
Then soak for 3 hours adding enough water.
After 3 hours grind soaked rice and coconut into a very very smooth batter.
Add salt, sugar and mix well.
The batter should be watery. No need to ferment.
Dosa can be prepared immediately.

Heat a tawa on a stove over medium flame.
Spread oil on the tawa.
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 and 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.

Serve hot with tomato sambar or tomato chutney or garlic chutney.
