Quinoa Brown Rice Dosa

Crispy dosas with spicy coconut chutney are always my H's favourite eventhough he loved variety chutneys to enjoy along with his dosas...I tried out making a batter using quinoa and brown rice along with urad dal and fenugreek seeds which i kept for fermentation and enjoyed these healthy crispy dosas for our sunday's dinner...None will find out that these dosas are prepared with quinoa and brown rice, yep they turned out extremely crispy and ressembles quite like our usual dosas...Believe me or not we had a great dinner and enjoyed having these crispy dosas which turned almost like paper roast..

Quinoa & Brown Rice Dosa

1cup Quinoa
1cup Brown rice (long grain)
1/2cup Urad dal (deskinned)
1/2tsp Fenugreek seeds
Salt

Wash and soak the quinoa and brown rice together and urad dal along with fenugreek seeds separatly for 4hours..

Grind the urad dal,fenugreek seeds as smooth batter in a grinder with enough water, take off the batter in a vessel,now grind the soaked quinoa and brown rice together as bit coarse paste with the soaked water,mix both urad dal batter and quinoa-brown rice paste together with enough salt..Keep aside for fermentation..

Heat a tawa and spread this fremented batter as thick circles,drizzle oil as per need and cook on both sides.

Serve immediately with spicy coconut chutney.

These sound great! I love the idea of sneaking healthy ingredients into foods. I have never cooked quinoa before but just happened to have picked some up at the grocery store, not sure what I was going to do with it though..lol. I will have to try these.
