I know this dosa might be new for most of you. Don’t worry, it’s the same with me too. πŸ˜„ Never knew dosas could be made with Barley. I usually make this Barley Carrot soup and Salad but dosa idea never dawned upon me (which is quite a surprise in itself as I see dosa in every grain, every lentil that I see πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Talk about Dosa Pyaar 😍).

Few months back, as I was organizing my pantry shelves (which is my favorite timepass when I have extra time after my chores and my kids are playing on their own = Rare blue moon occasions πŸ˜…), I found this little packet of Barley lying in the corner of the cupboard smiling at me, as if happy to be found. 😍 As I was about to soak it to make salad and soup, I remembered I had to soak for dosa batter too. A quick Google search and next day, Barley dosas were born in my kitchen for the first time. 😍

These dosas come out so tasty and you can never say it has Barley in it. If you are looking to include this healthy grain in your diet, dosa is the best way. My kids love it so much that they have more dosas than usual when I make them. ❀️

Hope you all try it too. Happy and healthy cooking! ❀️

RECIPE:

Ingredients: { Makes about 10 dosas }

1 Cup Urad dal (I use split ones)

1/2 Cup Barley

1/2 tsp Methi seeds

Salt to taste

Step by step recipe:

1. Take Urad dal, Barley and Methi seeds in a large bowl.

2. Wash it well and soak in enough water for atleast 2 to 4 hours. Now drain the water and add to a mixer jar.

3. Add salt and little water. Grind to a smooth paste. Pour into a large vessel.

4. Keep covered at room temperature for 8 hours or overnight.

5. Heat dosa pan and pour a ladle of dosa batter over it. Spread using the back of the ladle like regular dosas. Cook till the surface cooks. Add ghee or oil. You can either cook only one side or flip and cook both sides.

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

Notes:

* I served it with Sambarpalli leaves Chutney. Makes a great combination with this dosa.

* Barley dosa made this way comes out very soft. You can cook both sides to make it crispy.

* Barley is very good for health, mainly for intestines and is rich in vitamins. Here is the Barley Salad and Soup recipe that I make with Barley.
