Few weeks back i shared  millet energy mix powder/siru thaniya sathu maavu podi.You can find that recipe here.This millet powder is very useful & handy for us.We use this powder for making instant dosa & porrdige for our breakfast and dinner. It comes out very well with awesome flavours of millets.Every month my FIL buys 1/2 kg in each variety of millet & grind in a mill.We store and use that powder for 2-3 months and make dosas regularly and porridge during fasting days.My MIL usually says, instead of searching for different recipes with each millet,she is very much comfortable and happy with this mixed millet powder as it includes health benefits of all the millets in one recipe.Nowadays i too started making this dosa very often in my kitchen.Friends,if you got bored of making idli,dosa,pongal,upma and rice recipes with millets,do try this sathu maavu /health mix powder for a change.You will love it for sure.OK,Lets see how to make this easy,instant mixed millet powder dosa.

Millet energy mix powder dosa/Millet sathu maavu dosai

Millet energy mix powder dosa/Millet sathu maavu dosai Instant millet dosa using millet energy mix powder
Cuisine: Indian
Category: Breakfast
Serves: 5nos
Prep time: 5 Minutes
Cook time: 2 Minutes
Total time: 7 Minutes

For batter
To temper & saute
  • Cooking oil - 1 tsp
  • Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
  • Urad dal - 1/2 tsp
  • Cumin seeds/Jeera - 1/2 tsp
  • Big onion - 1 no
  • Green chilli - 1 no ( slit or chop finely)
  • Curry leaves - few
  • Ginger - 1/2 inch piece ( chopped finely)

  • Mix all the ingredients given under “ To batter”.Heat oil in a kadai and temper all the ingredients in the same order given under “ To temper”.Saute the onions,chillies till transparent.( Usually i do tempering job in dosa pan itself)
  • Add this to the batter and mix well.Check for salt. Batter should be slightly watery.Heat dosa pan and pour the batter in a circular manner starting from outwards towards center.Fill the holes with little batter.
  • Drizzle a tsp of oil around the dosa and cook for one side in medium flame till the edges start to lift slightly. Flip the dosa & cook for a minute.Remove in a plate n enjoy with chutney or idli podi

Enjoy !

  • Adding rice flour & curd is optional here.Instead u can add a tbsp oof ragi flour for easy removal of dosa.
  • If u want to make thick dosas,add little water & make dosas thick.For thin,lacy dosas,add more water & make the batter watery.But adding too much of water makes the dosa look dry.So take care.
  • Also if u don’t have time to have saute onions,just add pepper corns and jeera to the batter and make dosa.It also tastes equally good.

Enjoy eating this healthy energy mix mixed millet powder dosa for your breakfast/dinner.It is easily digestible too Smile
