Dosas are one of my favorite food in the world. I can never tire of eating them and can literally make them at any time of the day. Hence, I am always in the quest of trying new and healthy dosa recipes. One such recent find is this Bajra – Rawa Dosa (Pearl Millet – Semolina Crepes). Plus this is an instant dosa recipe that saves you time and needs no prep beforehand.

If you are a big dosa fan, then you must try all these amazing Dosa recipes:

  1. Masala Dosa
  2. Rava Dosa
  3. Jowar Dosa

This is similar to the Rawa Dosa recipe but the main ingredient is Bajra or pearl millet. It is a super healthy grain and is high in fiber content and helps reduce blood cholesterol. It is also supposed to lower the risk of stones and cancer. Therefore, this is an amazing way of adding it to your diet.
