Getting a Healthy Mix to the South Indian Dish: The Millet Dosa

Updated: Jul 4, 2022

Millets are essential for maintaining gut health because they are high in soluble fibre and micronutrients like iron, zinc, and selenium, which support immunity.


  • Finger millet rice - 140g

  • Kodo millet rice -140g

  • Little millet rice -150g

  • Barnyard millet rice -150g

  • Foxtail millet rice -150g

  • Black gram dhal - 250 g

  • Fenugreek seeds - 20 g Salt - as required

Please be aware:

Kodo and small millets contain the greatest levels of dietary fibre among healthy grains. Millets are significantly superior than most cereals in terms of their fibre content, coming in at close to 22 percent, making them the perfect choice for people trying to lose weight.

They aid in weight loss due to the bioactive substances and antioxidants they contain. The traditional side dishes to millet dosa are sambar and other chutneys. This crispy dosa sans rice is a nutritious and suitable breakfast for people with diabetes.


  1. Put all three millets in the first container, followed by the black gramme dal and fenugreek seeds in the second.

  2. After giving them a few cold water rinses and washes, soak them for eight hours.

  3. Poha (flattened rice flakes) should be soaked for 20 minutes.

  4. Dal, poha, and millets should all be drained of water.

  5. Now blend the millets, dal, and flattened rice flakes (poha) until smooth, incorporating a little water as needed.

  6. Put the batter in a container, cover it with a lid, and let it sit for a while to ferment.

  7. Once the batter has thoroughly fermented, add the salt and water as needed and thoroughly combine.

  8. When the dosa tava is hot, pour a ladle's worth of batter onto it and spread it out with the back of the ladle like a pancake.

  9. Spread 1 teaspoon of oil all over the dosa.

  10. When the dosa's base is crisp, gently fold it and place it on a plate after loosening it from the edges.

  11. Enjoy a hot, crispy dosa with your favourite chutney, sambar, or other side dish.


  • Batter should be stored in a container with enough space for it to rise while fermenting.

  • When grinding millets, less water is needed. So only add a little water when necessary.

  • Depending on the desired consistency, adjust the water.

  • The consistency of the dosa batter should be pourable. Verify that it is not too thick or too watery.
