Quinoa Dosa (Crepes)

          Today's post is going to be another healthy and delicious dosa with quinoa and brown rice. The most common way in which I include quinoa in our diet, is adding a little to the regular rice that I cook for lunch. Now this Quinoa Dosa has become another regular in my kitchen. The dosa comes out very good, it has the perfect texture, perfect color and also tastes really awesome with any chutney of your choice..

Need To Have

  • Quinoa - 1  cup
  • Brown Rice - 1 cup
  • Urad Dal/ Husked Whole Black Gram - 1/2 cup
  • Fenugreek Seeds - 1 teaspoon
  • Salt - 2 teaspoons


          Wash and soak the quinoa, rice, urad dal and fenugreek seeds for at least 8 hours or overnight. Add the soaked mixture to a grinder and grind for 1/2 hour. Add the salt, mix the batter with hand and let it ferment overnight or for 10 - 12 hours.

          The batter would have risen as shown in the picture. Add some water if needed and mix the batter well, it should have a consistency of a thin pancake batter. Heat and grease a pan, then pour a ladle of batter, spread it in  a circular motion, drizzle some oil, cover and cook. Once you can see the bottom browning, flip and cook the other side. Remove the dosa and serve it warm.

If the batter is fermented well, then you'll see tiny pores appearing when you spread the dosa batter.
