Brown Rice Dosa is a delightfully crispy, golden brown dosa that tastes awesome! On the other hand, it is amazingly healthy as we have used a combination of unpolished brown rice and two dals to make this dosa.
Make sure you use unpolished rice and not the regular Basmati; otherwise you will lose out on the health benefits. Unlike regular dosas that use only urad, here we have included a wee bit of chana dal to get a nice crispy texture.
With the appetizing aroma of fenugreek, this dosa is just too good to miss. So, make sure you try it.

- Combine the brown rice with enough water in a deep bowl. Cover with a lid and keep aside to soak for 4 hours.
- Combine the urad dal, chana dal and fenugreek seeds in a deep bowl. Cover with a lid and keep aside to soak for 4 hours.
- Wash and drain the brown rice and blend in a mixer to a smooth paste using approx. 1½ cups of water. Transfer the mixture into a deep bowl and keep aside.
- Wash and drain the urad dal- chana dal mixture and blend in a mixer to a smooth paste using approx. 1½ cups of water. Transfer the mixture into the same deep bowl with the brown rice mixture. Add the salt and mix very well.
- Cover and ferment in a warm place for 8 hours.
- Heat a non-stick tava (griddle), sprinkle a little water on the tava (griddle) and wipe it off gently using a cloth.
- Pour a ladleful of the batter on it and spread it in a circular motion to make a 175 mm. (7”) diameter thin circle.
- Smear a little ghee over it and along the edges and cook on a high flame till the dosa turns brown in colour and crisp.
- Fold over to make a semi-circle or a roll.
- Repeat with the remaining batter to make 34 more dosas.
- Serve immediately with coconut chutney and sambhar.
