When you get super bored of usual breakfast and dinner recipes, you can make some quick instant dosa like wheat dosa,ragi dosa and here is another healthy instant dosa of sorghum/jowar/cholam. You can either have these flours prepared at home and choose to buy organic flours. I generally don’t opt for instant menus as most of them don’t happen to be healthy. But when it comes to these recipes,they are super power houses of nutrition. I have always loved to include millets in my recipes and do read my detailed insight on millet with recipes here.
- Jowar/Sorghum Flour/Chola maavu-1 cup
- Salt-To taste
- Oil-To grease
- Onion-1/2 cup(finely chopped)
- Cumin seeds-1/4 tsp
- Green Chilly-1(chopped)
1. Add the flour in a vessel and mix well by adding water and salt.
2.Add chopped onion,cumin seeds,cashews and green chilly.
3.Mix well and make the batter slightly flowing in consistency
4.Leave it aside for 20 minutes(Optional).
5.Grease the dosa pan and spread the batter.
6.Close the dosa with the lid and cook well.
7.Flip sides and cook the other side.
8.Repeat the same for the remaining batter.
9. Serve it hot with any chutney.
Be careful while adding water.
Don’t make it too runny. The dosa might not turn well.
I skipped adding green chilly.
This cholam is not the corn flour we use. The millet image is in the top most picture.
Millets for babies is again a debated topic. Few offer it as early as 6 to 8 months while few recommend to delay till 1 year. But any millet needs perfect processing and complete cooking for digestion.
Always have a word with your pediatrician before introducing any new food.
Millets are rich in nutrition,gluten free. Check all recipes of different millets here.
