Cornmeal Dosa

Cornmeal dosa

Yellow yellow yummy fellow!! :)

Corn meal is a really healthy and tasty ingredient that we can use in a variety of dishes. This dosa was a mere experiment to me but I just loved it. :) It came out so well and its a simple and healthy breakfast.

Cornmeal dosa1


Cornmeal - 1 cup
Rice flour - 3/4 cup

Maida(all purpose flour) - 1/4 cup

Onion - 1
Chillies - 2

Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp

Salt - for taste

Cornmeal dosa3


Take a tsp of oil in a pan and crackle cumin seeds. Then add finely chopped onion and chillies and saute for a while until the onions turn golden brown.

In a bowl, mix corn flour, rice flour, maida and salt together and dilute it pouring in enough water to it. Now add the onion cumin mixture to it and mix well. The batter should be of rava dosa batter consistency.

Heat the skillet and pour a ladle full of batter starting from the edges in a circular way filling the empty portions in the center by pouring little batter. Pour little oil and turn over and roast till it becomes crisp on the sides.

Cornmeal dosa is ready to eat. Serve it hot with chutney. Happy making :)

First time on your blog, I love making dosas innovative types I would love to try this . I have a question Can i use Makai ka atta to make these dosas

Nithya said...

@Mahek - You can definitely use Makai ka atta. Infact it is exactly what is used in this dosa :)
