Oodhalu Dose | Barnyard Millet Dosa

DSC_1162

The best things about dose from Karnataka are its names. They actually have ingredients like eerulli (onion) and oodhalu (barnyard millet) only to help people like me doing an A-Z marathon. I lucked out or what!

I have made millet dosais and idlis previously but I always added some rice along with it. But this recipe calls for only the millet and lentils with a little of beaten rice. So I was, in equal parts, intrigued and nervous as to how it would turn out. Thankfully I can say it turned out beautifully and the daughter liked it. Can’t ask for anything more!

    OOdhaly dose, what a brilliant idea to pick this barnyard millet dosa for O. Now i can serve this barnyard millet as Oodhalu dosa as i loved the name of this dosa. Adding poha sounds good.
