Jola-Urd dal Dosa (Sorgum ( Jowar - Urd Dosa)

 Jola (in Kanada ) or Jowar is one of the variety of millet. It is also known as Sorgum, in Tamil is  Theni, Cholam in Malayalam and Jowar in Hindi and Jonnalu in Telugu. It is a very healthy grain and it is one of the gluteen free grain. I tried this recipe the first time and I have used Urd dal, millet and a table spoon of rava . We al loved the way the dosa has come out. Its soft, tasty and healthy. So I thought of sharing the recipe with You all.

Jola or Jowar is, gluten free. It is highly nutritious and it is ideal for children. It is a great energy source. Millet is complete protein source when combined with legumes. (Pulses).
Urd Dal has protein, fat and carbohydrates which is required by the body. This dal is one of the richest source of proteins and vitamin B. It has iron, folic acid, calcium, magnesium, potassium. Urd dal is rich in fibre and it helps to digest food easily. It helps to reduce cholesterol.

We can have Jola-Urd Dosa for breakfast, as evening snack or for dinner too. It is soft and will liked by all age group. You can also prepare onion or vegetable Uttappa. That is onion Dosa which most of the people like to have for a change. Here is the recipe I am sure that every one will surely love to have Jola-Urd dosa. We can have this dosa with any kind of chutney, sambar, chutney powder, pickle and even jaggery.

No need to use methi (fenugrik seeds) seeds for this dosa.  Use a non stick pan for the better result. Use oil according to your wish. Remember that using oil is not a healthy practice.  You can also add Millet Flour to left over Rava - Urd Idli dough and prepare yemmy Millet -Urd Dosas.
