Foxtail Millet & Moongdal Dosa/Foxtail Millet Pesarattu - Shh Cooking Secretly Challenge#1

Recently i have asked few of my friends from FB to join with me for a cooking challenge, trust me this challenge is already a big hit even before am introducing about this event in this blogsphere. This event is something we are seriously enjoying since ever i combined a pair of foodie bloggers. I know you are nt getting what am talking about.I have recently created this event and the theme of this challenge is to exchange two secret ingredients between a pair of food bloggers mutually, they just need to cook with it either one or two dish depending upon the secret ingredients suggested by their pair. Apart from them, none from the group or even me doesnt know their secret ingredients and each blogger pair i have combined together will reveal their secret ingredient respectively only on the revealing date that is between 16-18th of each month. Sounds interesting and am sure many of us will be curious about this event. Do you want to join us, dont forget to get connect with through our FB group.


I named this event as Shhhh Cooking Secretly Challenge and we are having fun in guessing other's secret ingredients through the pictures each of us have been sharing in our FB group. Trust me its seriously very hard to find out and each of us have done an excellent job by creating delicious dishes from their secret ingredients which is still a mystery for us. Thanks to each and every members of this group for being sportive with loads of enthu.Logo was created by Divya of Divya's Culinary Journey, thanks Divya for this cute logo.I have been paired with Kalpana of Life with Spices and my secret ingredients are Foxtail millet and Spinach.Few days back i prepared this non fermentation dosa with foxtail millet and yellow moongdal.You can also name this dosa as Pesarattu, a delicious dish i cooked with both foxtail millet aka thinai which is spiced up with green chillies and ginger. Serve with a simple coconut chutney or an onion chutney, these dosas are seriously filling and satisfying you can have for both your breakfast or dinner.

2cups Yellow Moongdal/Split Green gram 
1cup Foxtail millet/Thinai
2nos Green chillies
1no Ginger (small piece)
1/2tsp Cumin seeds
Salt

Wash and soak the moongdal and foxtail millet for 4 hours.

Mince the ginger and chop the green chillies.

Grind the soaked moongdal and foxtail millet along with chopped green chillies, minced ginger and cumin seeds as smooth paste with enough salt..

Heat a tawa, pour a ladle full of batter, and  turn the batter as dosa.

Cook on both sides until the pesarattu turns brown.

Serve with chutneys.
