Whole wheat grain dosai

Written by: Shanthi Muthuvel
Wheat is the most important cereal crop in the world. The health benefits of wheat depend entirely on the form in which you eat it. These benefits will be few if you select wheat that has been processed. Unfortunately, the 40% that gets removed includes the bran and the germ of the wheat grain—its most nutrient-rich parts. In the process of making 60% extraction flour, over half of the vitamin B1, B2, B3, E, folic acid, calcium, phosphorus, zinc, copper, iron, and fiber are lost. I made this dosai with whole wheat grain instead of making with whole wheat flour. It tastes awesome than making use of wheat flour.

  2. Grind whole black gram in a mixer grinder to a smooth paste, set aside.Then grind rice to a coarse paste (like we make for idly) followed by Whole wheat. Set aside.
  3. Mix everything together along with required salt. Ferment this flour for at least 5 to 6 hr or until well fermented.
