Navane /Foxtail Millet Crispy Dosa

Dosa/Dose is one of the good breakfast dish that most of us love to have it. It is healthy and loaded with urid dal and it is full of protein and energetic pulse. This time I have added  toor dal and channa dal to the batter while grinding. Dosa has tuned crispy and got golden colour.


The other secret is that you should keep the dough in the fridge at least 10 minutes before you prepare dosa. (After fermentation).
Fox tail millet is full of fiber, energetic and it is one of the siri dhanya/Millet. Millets help us to control blood pressure and is good for people who are suffering from diabetic problem.
Let us see the recipe Now :

Ingredients : 

Navane/Foxtail millet : 4 Cups
Urid dal : 1 Cup
Methi : 1 Teaspoon
Channa dal : 1 Tablespoon
Toor dal : 1 Tablespoon
Avalakki /Aval/Flattened rice : 2 to 3 Handful /3/4 Cup
Salt : As required
Oil /Ghee : 3 to 4 Tablespoons


Method :

1. Clean and wash Navane /Fox tail millet, methi seeds, avalakki, toor dal, channa dal and  urid dal.
2. Grind all the ingredients nicely till paste.( I have used the grinder to prepare the batter).
3. Remove it from the grinder and add salt. Mix it well and let it ferment well. (Over night).


4. Next day morning keep this fermented the fridge for 20 minutes.
5. Take the batter out from fridge and mix it well.

6. Keep tava/dosa pan on the fire. Let it get hot.
7. Reduce the flame. Sprinkle little water on the hot tava and clean it well.
8. Mix dosa batter well and take a ladle of batter and put it on the tava.
9. Spread the batter around the pan and put a teaspoon of oil on the dosa. (Sprinkle oil on the top).


10.Cover and cook dosa for a minute. Turn the other side and cook for a minute. (Optional).

11. Dosa is ready to serve. Serve with your choice of side dish. Repeat the same and prepare the rest of the dosas. (Remaining batter).


12. Add a spoon of fresh ghee just before serving hot dosa.


Note : 

Do not try to spread dosa batter on very hot tava. It might stick to the pan and the ladle and it will be messy. Decrease the heat by sprinkling some normal water on tava and reduce the flame to low. Clean the tava completely with a kitchen tissue or clean towel. Adjust the batter consistency and pour the batter and spread it slowly
  Add little water if the batter is so thick. It should be into running consistency. ( Not very watery). Keep the flame very low while pouring the batter to the pan. Do not add oil first. Spread the dosa batter around and then sprinkle oil. This helps the dosa to be crispy.
Adding little channa dal and toor dal helps the dosa to be crispy. Keeping the ferment batter in the fridge helps in turning dosa very crispy and adds the golden colour.
cooking dosa on one side is optional. ( It gets cooked nicely once you cover the lid while cooking).

Time : Soaking Navane and urid dal 3 hours + grinding 20 minutes + fermentation Over night/5 to 6 hours and dosa preparation 30 Minutes.
Serves : 20 to 25 Dosa.

Foxtail Millet & Mixed dal Dosas

Here I have tried using dals and foxtail mellet. 
varities of dosas can be prepared using this dough, like plain dosas (Crispy as choice), Masala dosa, (Using potato dry curry), paddu, onion dosa etc.
You can even prepare dosa as soon as you grind the dough. ( Optional) (Fermented is better and good).
Foxtail millet/Navane is one of the healthy Millet and using millet in daily life has become more popular these days .Millets are getting more and more popular. I have used mixed dals & Foxtail millet and prepared plain dosa and Masala Dosa. Dosa  came out crispy, yummy and need not to say we loved it. I even tried the fresh ground dough which was just ground and it turned soft and nice.
I have used foxtail millet, moong, toor, urid and channa dal with little Avalakki/flattened rice.
Millets are known as "Siri Dhanya " in Kannada langurage/Karnataka/India. This foxtail millet is known as Navane or Navanakki in Kannada. (ನವಣೆ ಅಥವಾ ನವಣಕ್ಕಿ), Kaon dhana in Bengali, Kooralu in Telugh and Kangani in Hindi.
Millets are known for their healthy properties, they are gluten free, rich in fiber and helps to control diabetes and high blood pressure.
Adding  little dry ginger powder helps to avoid the gas contained in dals. It acts as antioxidants and helps to digest the food easily.
