Baragu / Proso Millet Dosa/

 Baragu/Proso mIllet is one of the millet family grain. We can prepare lots of dishes using baragu in our Indian style. I have prepared dosa using baragu instead of rice.

Millets have become very popular these days because of their healthy content and it has rich source of minerals and vitamins.
I have used Baragu/ Proso Millet, urid dal and methi dal for dosa. Dosa turns out very colourful and it is better to have them when they are hot.
Let us see some benefits of eating " Baragu/ Proso Millet " in our diet.
Baragu has rich source of antioxidants and it helps to get rid of wrinkles. They contain high amount of lecithin and it helps in strengthening nervous system. Baragu/Proso millet has calcium and it is good for growing kids. Proso millet reduces and controls the cholesterol level in our body. Baragu is gluten free and it provides energy,It has carbohydrates in very small level. It has minerals in it. They do contain minerals like phosphorus, mangaese, magnesium etc.
Let us see the recipe now:

Things needed :

Baragu : 2 Cups
Urid dal : 1/2 Cup
Methi Seeds : 1/2 Teaspoon
Avaalakki : One handful
Toor dal : 1 Tablespoon
Salt : As required

Method :

1. Clean and soak Baragu/Proso Millet, urid dal, toor dal, methi seeds for 3 to 4 hours.

2.Wash and soak avalakki./flattened rice for 1 to 2 hours.

3. Grind all the ingredients together and remove it from the mixi jar.

4. Put it in a big bowl and add salt. Mix it well and leave it for formentation. 6 to 8 hours or over night.

5. Keep a tava/pan on the fire and heat. Clean the tava with a kitchen tissue.
6. Mix the dough nicely and take a ladle of dough and spread it on the hot tava. (Let the flame be low). ( Add water if required and adjust the dough to proper consistency.

7. Sprinkle oil on the top and turn the dosa other side and cook for a minute.

8. Hot baragu dosa is ready to serve. Repeat the same with remaining dough.
9. Serve Baragu/Proso Millet dosa with the side dish you have prepared.

Note :

Dosa dough should not be watery. Use only the required water while grinding. And then you can ad water and adjust the dough. No need to add any cooking soda. Let the dough be ferment well. Dosas are soft and yummy. Serve hot dosas to get the good taste of it. Though looks nice but it is softer than normal dosa. This time I have used a mixi to grind. You can use a grinder. It gives a best result.
Do not add oil on tava and put the dough to spread. It will stick to the ladle and you may not be able to spread it evenly. So add oil on hot tava and clean it nicely with a kitchen tissue. Lower the flame. Now you add dough and spread it as big dosa as you need.
Time : Soaking time 4 hours + grinding and ferment 6 to 7 hours. Dosa preparation 30 Minutes.
Serves : 5 to 6 .
