Healthy Vrat Dosa Recipe


Healthy Vrat Dosa has been prepared with Barnyard Millet (Also known as Samvat rice/sama ke Chawal), Amaranth (Rajgira) flour and buttermilk.

Barnyard Millet is a gluten free millet with high calcium,iron, phosporous and fiber. Amaranth flour is equally nutritious with it being rich in fiber, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus and antioxidants.

These dosas are very crispy and have a distinct flavor. But, when they are served with potato filling and spicy coconut chutney,  healthy vrat dosas taste so delicious that you do not miss your regular dosas anymore. Coconut chutney can be prepared by grinding grated coconut, green chillies, yogurt and sendha namak.
