Aval Dosai | Poha Dosa | Dosa variety

Aval Dosai/Poha Dosa, a spongy & tasty dosa made with raw rice and poha. It's a recent addition to our breakfast menu. Few months back, during shopping, i wrongly picked the thin variety of poha, it's so thin & good for having as it only. For cooking, it's not suitable and  turns into mushy. 
Suddenly i remembered this dosa that i bookmarked from palakkad cooking ,though the recipe calls for thick variety poha, i tried it with thin variety with different  proportion of rice and poha in very small quantity. To my surprise,it turns out so spongy and tasty. From that day onwards, i'm making this regularly for our breakfast . The taste of this dosa is kind of in between the dosa and appam. So if you like appam or dosa, then give it a try, surely you will love this dosa.

  • If you're using thick aval, 1/3 cup is enough.
  • If you don't have buttermilk, then beat curd with enough water and use it.
  • This dosa is slightly sweet because of raw rice and aval.
  • This batter doesn't rise much as dosa batter after ferment.
  • As this dosa have slight sweetness, any spicy chutney or podi really goes well with this.
