Multigrain Dosa

IMG_0258

This crisp and yummy multi grain dosa is packed with healthy grains like flax seeds, rye, corn meal, barley, wheat bran, whole wheat, sunflower seeds apart from the rice-urad dal batter. I got this recipe from my mom’s collection. The original recipe is by Chef Pratish Nair (ITC hotels). The dosa batter preparation involves making a dosa batter using basmati rice and urad dal, and a grain mixture using all the healthy grains I mentioned above. Using basmati rice gives the dosa a nice crisp texture. Since flax seeds are packed into this batter, the seeds release enough oil and you can make your dosas without using any oil or ghee 🙂 The dosas come out really crisp, perfect and delicious. I enjoyed my dosa with cranberry thokku and molaga podi :). Here’s the detailed recipe:

Ingredients

  • FOR THE GRAIN MIX
    • 8 tbsp flax seed
    • 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
    • 1/3 cup wheat bran
    • 1/2 cup soya bean flour
    • 1/3 cup barley
    • 1/8 cup sunflower seeds
    • 1/3 cup corn meal
    • 1/4 cup rye flour
    • 1/3 cup old fashioned oats or 1/4 cup oatmeal flour
    • 1 tbsp white sesame seeds
    • 1 tbsp cumin seeds
    • Salt to taste
  • FOR THE DOSA BATTER
    • 4 cups basmati rice
    • 1/2 cup urad dal

Method:

  • For the dosa batter
    • Soak the rice and urad dal separately for 5-6 hours
    • First grind the urad dal for 5-7 minutes and then add the rice and grind to a fine paste
    • Leave the batter to ferment overnight
  • For the grain mixture
    • Soak all the whole grains – flax seed, sunflower seeds, oats, sesame seeds, jeera for 10-15 minutes in warm water
