 So, with these 2 rich ingredients and adding some more, these dosas and idlis are prepared!

Kullakkar red rice - 1 cup/any boiled matta red rice variety
Ragi/finger millet - 1 cup
Boiled rice + Idli rice - 1 cup
Whole urad - 1 cup
Methi seeds - 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Enough oil to make the dosas

Recipe cuisine: South Indian; Category: Breakfast/dinner
Soaking time: 6-7 hours; Cooking time: 3-4 minutes for each dosa

           Whole urad and methi taken in a vessel, washed and soaked. I normally soak them over night, and grind in the early morning, so that the batter is ready by dinner time. If you want, you can soak in the morning, grind in the evening and leave it over night for fermenting

Ragi, red rice, and boiled + idli rice taken in a bowl, washed and soaked in boiling hot water

Urad and methi first ground, then the rice-ragi batter ground, all mixed well with salt to taste

See how well it has fermented!!!

Spread it like a regular dosa, and drizzle some oil around it really comes out very thin and crisp

Flip it over

Serve with sambar or chutney

You can also add fvery finely chopped veggies of your choice, add some molagappodi also, and make yummy Oothappams

                                               Idlis also came out very well, soft and fluffy
