Whole wheat is supposed to be  the World's healthiest foods...since its bran and germ of the wheat , the nutrient-rich parts , will be intact.
 A very good source of dietary fiber, manganese and magnesium. Women who eat whole grains always weigh less,  whole grains reduce the risk of metabolic syndrome, lower diabetes risk, whole wheat's betaine lessens chronic inflammation, helps prevent gall stones, is   a good laxative, promotes women's health and protects gastrointestinal health, is extremely protective against breast  cancer, prevents childhood asthma, protects against heart disease, so on and on...in one word, adding whole wheat is a very good thing in our life...
Heard about this rare, unique dosa from a  friend of mine..........who said, even when guests come suddenly, it is so easy and quick to whip up this dosa, as this does not require any soaking or fermenting..........tried it at once.....and it was worth the try😀
Please check my other dosa varieties


Ingredients
Whole wheat - 1 cup
Hing powder - 1/2 tsp
Rice flour - 3-4 tsps
Red chillies - 2-3
Salt to taste
Oil to make dosas
Curry leaves - few, chopped to pieces
Jeera - 1 tsp

Recipe Cuisine: South Indian; Category: Breakfast/dinner
Prep time: 5 mts; Cooking time: 3-4 mts for each dosa

Yields 7 dosas

Whole wheat measured and taken


No need to soak the whole wheat. Just wash it, and load into the blender jar along with salt, red chillies and hing powder.


First pulse and blend it as it is, without adding water.


Then add water little by little, and grind to a smooth batter.


Pour the batter into a vessel, add rice flour and mix well, without any lumps. Since, ground wheat becomes a little sticky, this addition of rice flour really helps to make the dosas crisp.


Add the chopped curry leaves and jeera. Let the batter rest for 15 minutes. The consistency should be like that of  Rava dosa


Heat a tava, and pour the batter from the corners to the center.


Drizzle some oil around, and keep on medium flames. 


Let the bottom side become well roasted and golden in color, flip it over. No need to drizzle oil again. Keep on low flames, and wait till it gets roasted.


Serve this extremely tasty dosa with coconut chutney and molagappodi..Just imagine...all the wellness of the whole wheat...in an easy dosa!!!

Notes
*Some finely chopped green chillies can be added to the batter too.
*If you want to add onions, sprinkle some on to the hot tava, then pour the batter.
