Breakfast, Dosa

Sprouts Dosa with Jowar | Sorghum dosa with sprouts  

Sprouts Jowar Dosa is an instant Protein rich, Gluten Free, Vegan Dosa made with combing sorghum flour with nutrient-rich sprouts. Makes for a healthy breakfast / brunch option. 

Sprouts are made very regularly at home. Like My homemade veg stock, I have a ritual to make these sprouts at home. While most of the time, they are made of mung beans, I experiment with Whole Jowar & Black Channa too once in a while. Where I live, it’s a reasonably humid / tropical climate through the year, so for sprouting I dont need any special equipment, although I did try the fad of sprouting using an Instant Pot.

Tips and tricks to make a great Sprouts Jowar Dosa:

  1. If using refrigerated sprouts, bring the required quantity to room temperature and then use
  2. If you dont use / dont have Jowar flour, use normal atta (wholewheat flour). But the Dosa wouldn’t be Gluten Free then
  3. Rice flour is added to make the dosa little crispy
  4. Be sure to cook the dosa on medium-high flame. Else it will either burn or undercook
  5. Amount of water depends on the quantity and quality of your flour 
  6. Be sure to mix the batter well every time before making the dosa as the flour / protein tends to settle at the bottom.
