Dosa Batter/How to Make Dosa Batter/How to make Dosai Maavu

Today, I am going to share a very basic dosa batter. To make this batter you don’t need a grinder, you can just grind it in mixer and still make perfect and tasty dosas. The key to make perfect dosa batter, is you need to choose good quality idli rice and raw rice. Urad dal also should be of good quality for perfect idlis and dosas. Add aval/poha when making the batter makes it easier to spread and make the dosa. Adding fenugreeks/vendhayam acts as natural coolant and makes a soft batter. Do try out this easy to make Dosa batter and post your comments here. This dosa can be served with thengai chutney or any chutney of your choice, sambar  or idli milagi podi etc. Meanwhile do check out other interesting and traditional Breakfast recipes here.

Pesarattu/Green Gram Dosa

Pesarattu is a very unique and a delicious dosa/crepe from Andhra Pradesh. It is made with whole green gram, the kids fall in love with this pesarattu  for its green color. It is very healthy and protein packed breakfast. This dosa does not need fermentation, can be made immediately after grinding.

Health benefits: It is highly rich in  fiber and protein. One cup of cooked green gram contains about 15 g of fiber and 14 g of protein. It has both insoluble and water soluble fiber. The water soluble fiber helps in reducing the cholesterol level. It digests slowly and gradually releases glucose, there by stabilizing the blood sugar level. Now lets see how to make pesarattu.
