Bajra Dosa Recipe: How To Make Bajra Dosa
To begin with, we first need to soak the urad dal. Take a separate bowl and soak rice and bajra in it. Allow both the mixtures to soak in water for at least 4 hours. Once done, grind the urad dal to form a smooth paste.
Next, grind the bajra and rice together. Now, mix the urad dal paste and bajra-rice mixture together. Add some salt and water to make a smooth batter. Let the batter ferment for 4-5 hours or overnight.
Grease a hot pan with some oil, wipe it off and then sprinkle some water. Spread the dosa batter evenly and allow it to cook until golden brown. Flip and cook from the other side. Bajra dosa is ready!
