saamai arisi dosai

Yields : 25 Dosai

Preparation Time : 5 Minutes + Time for Grinding and Fermentation


Little Millet      - 1 cup (Saamai Arisi)
Idli Rice            - 1 cup (Idli Arisi)
Urad Dal           - 1/2 cup
Toor Dal            - 1 tsp (Thuvaram Parupu)
Channa Dal       - 1 tsp (Kadalai Parupu)
Salt                    - As required
Gingely Oil       - As required


  • Soak Saamai Arisi ( Little Millet), Idli Rice, Urad dal, Toor dal and Channa dal for 4 to 5 hours.
  • After that grind it to a smooth batter along with little salt. Let the batter ferment overnight or for at-least 8 hours.
  • After the batter has fermented, heat a dosai pan. Grease it with oil. I always prefer Gingely oil for dosai. Add batter to pan and expand it. Apply oil to it. Once both sides are done, remove from flame and serve it hot. 
  • Serve it with hot sambar and Chutney of your choice. We had this dosai with Kadappa.
