chola dosai recipe / sola dosai / Sorghum dosa/ jowar dosa


Sorghum, also called jowar, Indian millet, cholam (in Tamil). Jowar is rich in fiber and contains high-quality protein. Both of them help to keep you fuller for a longer time and prevents cravings for unhealthy food items. A single serving of jowar contains over 12 grams of fiber and 22 grams of protein. Jowar is also naturally cooling, so it can be a valuable addition to the diet when it’s hot outside. Use the whole seed and not the jowar flour for this recipe. Also, I add idli rice, whole urad dal and fenugreek seeds. Fenugreek is always added to dosa batters, especially those that are fermented, because it has a naturally helps to s peed the fermentation process.
