brown rice dosa recipe | crispy brown rice dosa healthy breakfast | brown rice dosa benefits | brown rice and urad dal dosa is a slightly healthier version than dosa made with white rice.

To make brown rice dosa, 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. 11/2 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 sambar.

Brown rice and urad dal 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. Unlike regular dosas that use only urad, here we have included a wee bit of chana dal to get a nice crispy texture.

Explore the brown rice dosa benefits. The use of dals and brown rice makes it a source of good quality protein. Brown rice is a tad healthier than white rice as it has little more fibre and thus is preferred than polished white rice. People with heart patients can opt for this dosa. However, diabetics we recommend oats dosa or quinoa dosa as compared to this brown rice dosa.

With the appetizing aroma of fenugreek, this crispy brown rice dosa healthy breakfast is just too good to miss. So, make sure you try it. Also do try other brown rice recipes like Curd Brown Rice and Roasted Vegetables with Brown Rice.

Tips for brown rice dosa. 1. Do not miss out on adding fenugreek seeds. They help in fermenting. 2. If you are using leftover batter from the fridge then bring it to room temperature and then make dosa. This is very important or else you won’t get brown crispy dosa. 3. Also try and serve it immediately on making.
