Korra Biyam Dosa or Fox Millet Dosa ~ 101 Dosa Varieties!

I know my mind is still thinking of Rotis, but here comes a dosa for a change. Of course, the availability of this grain is quite limited. Still its an excellent replacement for regular rice. As I have already posted couple of dishes made from this Korra Biyam or the Fox Millet as it might be called, I thought this dosa made from it would be the most apt one to make on a regular basis.

Since Korra Biyam is known for its goodness, its mostly consumed by people who have diabetics. And it has great taste. We had been planning for this quite sometime, and then finally when we made it, I was really in a hurry to leave and completely forgot to click the pictures. After preparing it and getting busy packing everything, I forgot about clicking for once and Athamma promptly reminded me that I am yet to do. So those are some hurried pictures!


The other Sunday, hubby dear took the twins to park. Of course, not together. Peddu, I believe hesitated for a minute, before he ran to climb the building block. They spent some half hour playing and returned back. Then Chinnu went and hubby dear was shocked to find that he didn't even wait for a second to think. The moment Chinnu saw the block, he climbed up and next moment he was on top! Now Chinnu .climbs over the TV in the living room and roars like a Tarzan! Amma was more scared than anybody else. All we could do is only laugh at their antics when she was telling us about that.

Yeah coming to this dosa, Chinnu also had a bite and looked like he liked it. Though I didn't give him more.


Preparation Time : 10 mins
Soaking Time : 5-6 hrs
Fermentation : Over night or 6-7 hrs
Cuisine : Andhra

Ingredients Needed

Fox Millet / Korra Biyam - 1 cup
Urad Dal - 1/4 cup
Salt


Method to prepare:

This is prepared as the regular dosa batter. So wash and soak the Fox Millet for about 6 hrs, along with Urad dal.

Then grind to a smooth batter in a mixer, using enough water. This is ground as the regular dosa batter.

Allow it to get fermented overnight. The batter is all ready for breakfast.

I made Carrot Kurma as the side dish, it tasted great!

Even I do korra dosa just like you but add a tbsp of methi seeds and a spoon of chana dal. They give nice colour to the dosa and also taste good.

I was searching for authentic andhra food on google and through it I came to your site.

Nice work.

It looks like Jola or Jowar, may be it's different grain I don't recognize. Dosa looks yum. I am only person, a Mysore girl, who likes dosa at home, although kids eat when I make them, I don't give them any other choice. A likes Masale dose , that's it!:)
I am making Dosa from Quinoa today!:)
