There are several forgotten gems from South Indian cuisine, which people are vehemently attempting to bring back to the fore now. This delicious Farali Dosa is an example. While people commonly make regular dosa or quick-fix ones out of wheat flour or semolina, they forget that very tasty dosas can be made out of millet flours too! The combination of sama and rajgira flour gives rise to a sumptuous dosa that is sure to please your palate on a fasting day. Sour buttermilk is added to the batter to help in fermenting. The fermentation time is just two hours, so you do not even have to plan for this dosa the previous day itself. This Farali Dosa has a wonderful, crispy texture if made thin and had immediately. If you make it too thick or have it later, it might be chewy. Enjoy this hot and fresh with Peanut Curd Chutney or Farali Idli Sambhar. You can also try other faraali recipes like the Maharashtrian favourites – Upvaas Thalipeeth and Farali Misal, or the popular Gujarati Layered Handva Recipe.
