Barnyard Millet Dosa

Serves: 3-4


  • 1½ cup kuthiraivali or barnyard millet
  • 1 big boiled potato, grated
  • 2 green chillies
  • 1-inch ginger, ground
  • Rock salt or regular salt, to taste
  • Ghee or oil, for frying
  • Mint, coriander chutney and sabudana khichdi, to serve


  • In a channi or colander wash the millets well under running water to remove any impurities.
    Transfer in a big pot filled with water and soak for an hour.
    Drain off the water and wash once the millets again before transferring into a grinder jar.
    Add some water, ginger paste, green chillies, salt, boiled potatoes and pulse until you get a smooth consistency.
    Add more water if required. Make sure the batter is not too thick nor too runny.
    Transfer into a bowl and keep aside.
  • Heat a little of the oil or ghee in a griddle or heavy-bottomed frying pan over medium-high heat.
    Pour a ladleful of batter onto the centre of the pan and spread it outwards in a circular motion.
    Pour a tsp of ghee or oil around the edges of the dosa and let it cook for a few minutes.
    Flip and let the dosa cook until light brown.
    Fold, take off heat and place on a plate.
    Serve warm with freshly ground mint and coriander chutney and sabudana khichdi on the side.
