Brown Rice Aval / Poha Dosa (Brown Rice Crepes)

Brown rice aval dosa is a healthier version of regular dosa. I used red aval in this recipe, if you can't find red aval white variety works just as well. This recipe is very diabetic friendly and delicious too.

  • Brown rice - 3 cups
  • Red aval / poha - 1 cup
  • Urad dhal - 1 cup
  • Oil
  • Salt to taste

  • Wash and soak brown rice, aval and urad dhal together for 4 to 5 hours

  • Grind into a smooth paste by adding little water and mix salt as required

  • Ferment the batter over night and it will raise in 8 to 10 hours

  • If you live in a colder place, you can pre-heat the conventional oven for 10 minutes and turn it off and keep the batter inside  
  • Heat the tawa and grease it with oil 
  • Pour a laddle full of batter and spread it  
  • Pour little oil around the dosa and cook it flip it over and cook the other side

  • Serve with chutney or sambar 
  • This dosa is little soft in texture, so use non-stick tawa or if you use regular iron skillet just add 1/4 cup of rice flour to the batter and this will help you to flip the dosa easier
