Rajamudi Rice Dosa ( Red Raw Rice Dosa )

Dosa/Dose is all time favourite food for me and our family. Dosa/idli and Indian breakfast are really healthy. There are different varieties of dosas, idlis. Rajamudi Rice is said to be healthy rice and I have tried dosa with this Rajamudi Rice and urid dal.
Rajamudi Rice has a long history. Rajamudi  Rice was used by Mysore Odeyars (Kings) and they punish the farmers who failed to pay tax to grow this variety of rice and given it to the Kings Court. It is a healthy rice which keeps your stomach filled for a long time. It is fiber content.

We normally buy this rice from Savaya K|rushi Mela which is held every month in Chamarajpet.   (Rastrothana building). Rastrothana building is just behind Uma theater.  You get all types of Siri Dhanya and varieties of rice, spices, oil, soap, groceries and many more things. It is nice to visit once in a month and bring at least some good food to home.
Let us see the recipe Now

Things Needed :

Rajamudi Red Rice : 2 Cups
Urid dal : 1/2 Cup
Methi seeds/Fenugrik seeds : 1 Teaspoon
Avalakki/Poha/flattened rice : 2 Handful
Salt : As required
Oil/Ghee: 2 to 3 Tablespoons

Method :

1. Wash and soak Rajamudi rice,methi seeds and urid dal together for 3 to 4 hours.
2. Wash and soak avalakki separately.

3. Grind it together in a mixi jar. (I have used mixi jar this time). Use very little water.
4. Remove from the mixi jar and put it in a big bowl. Let it ferment for over night/6 to 8 hours.
5. Mix the dosa batter/dough nicely. Add water if required. Add salt and mix.
6. Keep a pan on the fire and heat. Clean it with a clean towel. Sprinkle oil on the top.

7. Take a ladle full of batter and spread it on the tava/pan. in round shape. Sprinkle oil on the top.
8. Cover and cook for a minute and remove the dosa from the pan. (No need to cook the other side).

9. Serve Hot dosa with the side dish you prepared.
10. Repeat the same with remaining batter and prepare dosas.


Divide the ingredients and then grind if you are using mixi jar to grind. (It helps to grind it nicely and comfortable). Use of ghee to cook dosa is optional. It adds to the taste. Cooking dosa on the other side is optional. I have not done. 
Time : Cooking time : 20 minutes, Soaking time : 4 hours, Grinding time : 10 minutes, 
Fermentation : over night or 6 to 8 hours.
