KULLAKKAR RED RICE
This is an ancient rice variety, grown in India, and it possesses
*anti oxidant properties
*high zinc and iron
*contains complex carbohydrates good for health

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





Ingredients
Kullakkar red rice - 1 cup
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 


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


                                               Idlis also came out very well, soft and fluffy
