Quinoa Dosa (Quinoa Savory Crepes)

Hello Friends,

I love the Tuesdays when I get to post bookmarked recipes as that means one less recipe in my list and one yummy recipe in a regular list that I make often at home.

This is one such recipe that I found in Denny's blog. Quinoa Dosa (Quinoa Savory Crepes) was a pleasant surprise for me. Honestly, I know you will think wow, but this is the first time I tried making proper dosa from scratch. I mean I make quick dosas like rava dosa and everything, but something which needs soaking of 8 hours, then grinding and fermenting of another 8 hours, is totally out of my league. I so do not have patience. But, after looking at the dosa picture in Denny's blog, I was prepped up to try and wanted to have this one as my first experiment.
Now, for someone who does not have wet grinder like me (like most South Indians usually have at their house), do not fret. You can easily do the grinding in regular mixed and/or food processor. I have Cuisinart food processor (My latest collection of appliances) and I used it successfully in making fine batter of the ingredients. 

Another thing, as I mentioned above, I don't make dosa/idli batter at home, so did not have Idli rice or parboiled rice that usually is used or even brown rice that Denny used. So, I went for my usual Sona Masoori varity of white rice and the dosa came absolutely fine, crispy. I could not tell the difference, but I am sure experts will be able to. But, for a novice like me, I was happy with my results :)

I used Denny's recipe as it is, so not going to repeat it further here. Please check the recipe here.

We had this dosa with Mango - Peanut - Cilantro Chutney, I posted in another post.

This goes to Bookmarked Recipes - Every Tuesday (Volume 44) event of Aipi and Mine.
That's all for now. Take care till next post.

Lovely dosas.
You know what, I do own a wet grinder and I prepare idlis and dosas at least once in a week. However I never use the grinder since I hate cleaning it. Instead I go with the regular American blenders to grind even though it is meant for juices. :) LOL It works. And regarding soaking, 3 -4 hours is enough.
