Pearl Millet Dosa/Kambu Dosai

Am an ardent fan of wholegrains and never failed to add them in my dishes, eventhough sometimes its quite a hard task for me to feed my kids, i do play with wholegrains with their favourite dishes and try to feed them atleast thrice a week. I know sometimes they may notice the addition of wholegrains but somehow i'll manage and explain them how healthy these fibre rich grains are. Few days back, i prepared some dosa batter with pearl millet aka kambu, i used whole pearl millet in this recipe and trust me this dosas turned out extremely fabulous.

I have tried some non fermentation dosas or adais with pearl millets,but preparing a dosa batter which need fermentation with whole pearl millet,am trying for the first time. Using pearl millet flour is definitely easier than than whole grains, coz whole pearl millet need to be soaked for a long and washed thoroughly to remove the impurities and small stones from it. If you feel lazy, you can go definitely for pearl millet flour and i'll share the recipe soon.


2cups Pearl millet/Kambu
1cup Brown rice or par boiled rice
1/2cup Urad dal
1tsp Fenugreek seeds

Wash well and soak the pearl millet with enough water for 5-6hours.

Soak the rice and urad dal with fenugreek seeds separately for 4-3hours.

Drain the water from urad dal and grind it as fine paste.

Transfer the urad dal batter to a vessel and grind now both the soaked pearl millet and brown rice.

Grind them as bit coarse paste.

Now mix both the urad dal batter with rice-pearl millet batter, add salt and keep aside for overnite.

After fermentation, give a stir and cook as dosas on both sides by drizzling oil or without oil in a non stick pan.

Serve with chutney or sambar.
