Chola dosai|Jowar Dosa|Sorghum Dosa Recipe:

When you get super bored of usual breakfast and dinner recipes, you can make some quick instant dosa like wheat dosa, ragi dosa and here is another healthy instant dosa of sorghum/jowar/cholam. You can either have these flours prepared at home and choose to buy organic flours. I generally don’t opt for instant menus as most of them don’t happen to be healthy. But when it comes to these recipes, they are super powerhouses of nutrition. I have always loved to include millets in my recipes and do read my detailed insight on millet with recipes here.

Be careful while adding water.

Don’t make it too runny. The dosa might not turn well.

I skipped adding green chilly.

This cholam is not the corn flour we use. The millet image is in the topmost picture.

Millets for babies is again a debated topic. Few offer it as early as 6 to 8 months while few recommend to delay till 1 year.  But any millet needs perfect processing and complete cooking for digestion.

Always have a word with your paediatrician before introducing any new food.

Millets are rich in nutrition,gluten-free. Check all recipes of different millets here.
