Quinoa Dosa / Crepe

Quinoa is a healthy and nutritious grain which is gluten-free and rich in Protein, Fiber and Minerals. Quinoa is crunchy, nutty and fluffy which makes it easy to use with several recipes. I tried few recipes with Quinoa that came out well - porridge, salad and pulao to name a few.

  • Quinoa - 1 cup ( I used pre-washed )
  • Brown rice - 1/2 cup
  • Cracked wheat - 3/4 cup
  • Urad dhal - 1/4 cup
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil for dosa
  • Wash brown rice and urad dhal well
  • Soak it along with Quinoa and cracked wheat for about 3 to 4 hours
  • Grind into a smooth batter along with required salt in a mixer or wet grinder
  • Ferment over night; the batter will rise in 8 to 10 hours
  • If you live in a colder place, you can pre-heat the conventional oven for 10 minutes and keep the batter inside the oven
  • Heat tawa/ griddle with 1 tsp of oil and pour a laddle full of batter on the tawa
  • Spread the batter evenly over the tawa using the laddle and add 1/2 tsp of oil 
  • Allow it to cook in medium flame for few minutes, flip it to the other side and cook well
  • Serve hot with chutney or sambar
