Brown Rice and Barley Dosa


This unique ingredient dosa came from a delightful blogger, Manjula of Dalitoy. She along with Shilpa and Vee has quite a lot of her authentic traditonal Konkani dishes and many other nutrition packed dishes too.
Not only the above dosa is nutrition and fibre packed, its equally a winner where taste is concerned...my kids love it as a crispy dosa and this is prepared every two weeks at my place.

Thanks to Manjula for posting this simple yet healthy dosa!

Ingredients :
1 cup brown rice
1 cup barley
1 cup urad daal
1 tsp methi seeds
Salt
Oil

Method :
Wash and soak brown rice and barley together for 10 hours. Wash udad daal and methi together and soak for same time. Grind the brown rice and barley with little water as water is sustained in these during soaking. Obtaining a rava texture is normal. Grind the urad-methi mixture with enough water to obtain dosa consistency, mix the two batter together adjust salt and water. Leave overnight or for 10-12 hours to ferment.
Prepare dosas frying both sides using oil sparingly, serve with chutney and sambhar or with any accompaniment of your choice.

Njoi hot dosas with a cup of tea/coffee !!!!

I have a pack of barley lying around that is not seeing light, so making dosa is a great idea.

Hi ISG! Barley was used as a home-remedy for stomach ache or cramps, boiling in water and consuming that water..but a dosa out of it was unique and awesome idea..tastes good..surely give a try!
