Red Rice Dosa / Diet-Friendly Recipe

Red rice dosa is a healthy and nutritious breakfast, as the germ of the rice is left intact in red rice. The red rice has a nutty flavor which makes the dosa tasty. This is a perfect breakfast recipe and goes yummy with any varieties of chutney and sambhar. The same batter can be used for Idli and Kuzhipaniyaram.

Soak urad dal along with fenugreek seeds and Red rice separately in a water for 4 hours.

Grind urad dal first using Ice water or normal water till it turns soft and fluffy. Remove and keep aside.

Now,grind the soaked red rice to a smooth batter and add it to the urad dal batter.

Add salt and mix well. Leave it aside for fermentation ( over night).

Once done, mix well and prepare like regular dosa.
