Gluten Free Channadal Quinoa Dosa/Kadalaparuppu Quinoa Dosai

Quinoa, these tiny grains are becoming my recent favourite after Oats, as these grains are seriously very versatile to cook with. From any breakfast dish to desserts, you can just whisk some interesting dishes with this incredible grain. Quinoa is definitely an extra-ordinary grain to cook with, and my today's recipe is also one among my trial which turned into some super crispy healthy dosas. And trust me, this dosa batter calls for an easy preparation as well.Though channadal plays an important role in this dosa batter, i couldnt stop myself adding quarter cup of urad dal. Needless to say that this dosas are totally oil-less, definitely a protein rich crispy Indian crepes to enjoy with your favourite chutneys or sambar either for your breakfast or dinner.

Kadalaparuppu Quinoa dosa, Channadal  Quinoa Dosa

1cup Quinoa
1/2cup Channadal
1/4cup Urad dal
1/4tsp Fenugreek seeds

Soak the quinoa, channadal, urad dal, fenugreek seeds together in a bowl and keep aside for atleast 3-4hours.

Grind this quinoa-dals as a bit coarse paste. Add enough salt, mix well and keep for fermentation.

This dosa batter wont double in volume as like usual dosa batter and this batter will be bit thick the next day.

Add some water to turn the batter as pouring consistency.

Heat a nonstick tawa or a pan for making dosas, once the pan is hot.

Grease the pan with a paper towel and drop a ladle of this channadal-quinoa dosa batter and spread as a thin dosa.

Drizzle oil (if needed) i didnt add oil as i used non stick pan, flip and cook on both sides until the dosa turns crispy.

Serve warm with chutneys or sambar.
