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.

Ingredients :

2 Cups Red rice
1/2 Cup Urad dal
1 Tsp Feenugreek seeds / Methi
Salt to taste

Method :

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.

Serve hot.

Serving Options :

Serve hot with chutney and sambhar.

Note :

Same batter can also be used for preparing Idlis.
