Sorghum Dosa (Jowar)

Sorghum Jowar Dosa

Sorghum Jowar Dosa a tasty twist to Rava Dosa. Lately, I am trying gluten free recipes and exploring the grains I rarely used. Sorghum Dosa is one of those recipes. This is a good alternative to regular dosa it is quick and easy to make. Sorghum Dosa batter does not need to be fermented. Sorghum dosa also vegan and gluten free. It is crispy and has a lacy look like Rava Dosa. You can serve this with traditional Samber and coconut Chutney or serve for a snack with cilantro Chutney. This recipe will serve 3.
