ABOUT Jowar (Great Millet) Dosa RECIPE

Great Millet or Sorghum is popularly known as jawari in Maharashtra, Goa. It is one of the Indian staple food and consumed in various forms like Bhakari, Dosa, ghavan etc. It is healthy, highly nutritious and contains high amount of protein; fiber; the B vitamins niacin, thiamin and vitamin B6; and several dietary minerals. Dosa is been prepared using jowar, rice, fenugreek seeds and urad dal. As I have not fermented it, used baking soda as a rising agent. These dosas are quick spongy and easy to prepare, tastes amazing with a spicy curry or tomato chutney.
