Millet is gaining more popularity now a days. Also including millets in your diet, is very healthy too.
  Tomato dosai i wanted to try for a long time. During my vacation to Chennai, my sister made this for me but with normal idli rice. I thought i will replace rice with millet and tried tomato dosa with Kuthravali millet also called as Barnyard millet in English|Odalu in kannada|Jhangora in hindi, is a healthy variety of millet, helps to reduce cholesterol and also good for diabetics too. You can try out this dosa with samai and varagu too. Somehow thinai dosai gives little dry dosa. Check out my

Millet-tomato dosai Notes:
  1. Since tomatoes are added 3 chilies will not give much spice to the dosa.
  2. Adding onions is optional but if you are adding chop them very finely, else you can not spread the dosa smoothly.

  2. dosai looks really good. My grandparents always had millet rotlas for dinner. As they say whatever our forefathers had as a part of their diet must have been for a good reason.
