Little millet dosa | No rice dosa

Just finished sending off my little girl to school (she has classes every alternate week) and before my son wakes up in a while, I thought of finishing off this blog. As soon as he wakes up, all he would want is to cuddle me and sit like that for an hour (Wish I could share a picture of that scene 😍) until he gets hungry, asking me to go make “bobbo” (dosa) for him. 😄 This tiny man of mine is such a loving one that I call him my “lover boy”. 😍 Seriously, the way he hugs me, holds me and kisses me, I feel so so loved. I realize how these moments matter in our lives and how kids can brighten our day by their sweet gestures. ❤️

Talking about gestures, as you can see from the picture of the dosa, my daughter is holding the plate. It was supposed to be my usual (boring 😁) kind of click until this girl saw her Amma clicking in the regular way and being the typical Aquarian (An unique sign ❤️) that she is, said, ” Amma, let me hold this and see, how many likes you will get for your blog!” 🤣🤣

She is a huge fan of vlogs and loves making videos herself. Looking at her interest at making videos, I wonder from where she has got this. I can’t imagine facing camera and dread taking even my pictures, let alone videos. 😂 But the confidence in which she presents herself, talking with so much enthusiasm, makes me feel proud of her. Atleast she is not camera shy like me and loves herself. Hope she can be a YouTuber like she wishes to be in future. ❤️

So here’s the little millet dosa presented by my soon to be 6 year old daughter. You can never say it is made of millets and tastes just really delicious. A great way to add the healthy millet in your diet. Hope you all try this. Happy and healthy cooking! ❤️

RECIPE:

Ingredients: { About 10 to 12 dosas }

1 1/2 Cups Little millet (Kutki/ Saamai)

1/2 Cup Urad dal (I use split ones)

1 tsp Fenugreek seeds (Methi)

Salt to taste

Ghee or oil to cook the dosas

Step by step recipe:

1. Soak Urad dal with Methi in a large bowl for about 4 hours. Also soak little millet in another bowl for 4 hours.

2. Now drain water from both completely. Grind Urad dal- Methi with about 3/4 Cup water to a smooth paste. Pour in a large vessel. Now add the soaked millet with about 1/4 Cup water in the mixer.

3. Grind the millet to a smooth paste too. Add this to the Urad dal dal paste. Add salt and mix well with hands.

4. Keep covered at room temperature for about 8 hours. Might take longer during winters. Always love to look at the well fermented batter in the morning. 😍

5. Now heat a dosa tawa and pour a ladle of dosa batter. Spread using behind the ladle like regular dosas. Add ghee or oil and cook till the dosas turn crisp.

6. Remove and serve with a chutney of your choice.

Notes:

* As can be seen from the picture, I have used Manna brand of Little millet which is readily available here, in Qatar. For readers’ from Qatar who ask me the source, I got them from Lulu hypermarket, Barwa City. Also available in Grand hypermarket, Wakra and all Lulu outlets.

* This dosa comes out crispy when cooked one side till the underside turns brown.

* Making this dosa with ghee adds such a wonderful flavour to this dosa.
