The batter to make this nutritious and tasty Nachni Dosa is easier to make than regular dosas because we have used nachni flour. So, you just need to grind the urad dal.

Allow the batter to ferment well, so you get really crisp dosas. Serve it hot with chutney and sambhar for a satiating breakfast.

As a variation, you can even add grated carrots or finely chopped onions and green chillies to the batter before making the dosas.

  5. Heat a non-stick tava (griddle), sprinkle a little water on the tava (griddle) and wipe it off gently using a muslin cloth.
  6. Pour a ladleful of the batter on it and spread it in a circular motion to make a 225 mm. (9”) diameter thin circle.
