A Healthy Twist To Dosas

Why Switch to Brown Rice?

Many of us are aware of the fact that brown rice is healthier than white rice. Milling, which is a process of converting brown rice into white, removes all the essential nutrients from white rice. Brown rice is a whole grain which has an outer bran layer and germ intact. This type of rice is high in fiber content as it doesn’t go through intense polishing and processing. Brown rice is rich in essential minerals such as manganese, iron, zinc, phosphorous, calcium, magnesium and potassium. Brown rice is also a rich source of protein and also supplies a good amount of fiber. Some of the health benefits of brown rice are:

  • Controls Diabetes
  • Rich in Antioxidants
  • Prevents obesity
  • Prevents Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Improves digestive health
  • Improves heart health
  • Controls cholesterol levels
  • Relieves insomnia

How to Make Brown Rice Dosa?

The procedure for making brown rice dosa is not very different. The only difference is in the ingredients that you will use to make the dosa. In fact, brown rice dosa is very crispy and has the perfect golden brown color. The best part is this dosa is very healthy as the batter has a combination of brown rice and two different lentils. However, an important point that you need to remember is you need to use unpolished brown rice instead of basmati. The reason is when you use basmati rice doesn’t provide the health benefits mentioned above.  To make the dosa, you need:

  • Unpolished brown rice
  • Urad Dal
  • Chana dal
  • Fenugreek seeds
  • Salt and Ghee

Soak the ingredients overnight to prepare the batter. However, with the KENT Turbo Grinder and Blender, you can prepare the batter without soaking. Make sure that you grind the rice and dals separately. Transfer the rice and dal batter in a bowl and add salt to it. To make perfectly round dosas, use KENT Chilla and Dosa Maker. Dip the Chilla and Dosa Maker in the batter and wait for the sides to turn brown. Serve with sambhar and chutney.
