Chola Dosai/Sorghum Dosa/Jowar Dosa Recipe

Chola Dosai-

Chola Dosai/Jowar Dosa/Sorghum Dosa is made with the white millet cholam/sorghum/jowar. Chola Dosai is so filling, soft and gluten-free. Chola Dosai has several nutrients like phosphorus, iron, calcium, and protein. I have the habit of including millets to my routine diet in various formats. And this chola dosai recipe is how grandmom makes the chola dosai traditionally. You can also make idlies with them. Babies above 6 months can be offered with this. I couldn’t source whole millet easily here. So I kept making it with the flour.Find one more version of Chola dosai|Jowar Dosa|Sorghum Dosa here
