Moongil Arisi Dosai | Bamboo Rice Dosa | Dosai Recipe

Moongil Dosa, a very flavorful and tasty dosa made from the Bamboo rice. Few months back, when my parents and my brother's family went to kodaikanal, Amma bought this moongil rice from there after heard all the benefits from the locals. Later she asked me(i feel really very proud whenever amma ask me for the recipe :-)) for the recipe using moongil rice, honestly that was the first time i heard about that rice, so quickly did search on google and told her that kanchi(porridge), payasam(kheer) and dosai can be made from moongil rice. 
As a starter, she had tried kanchi and it didn't turned out as expected. She said it was really chewy and took forever to cook. So she kept that aside for a while without touching. Now when i'm here, she tried this dosa with equal proportion of idli rice and this moongil with very less expectations, but to our surprise it turned out super delicious, everyone in our family liked it so much.    
P.S: Will update the step by step pics soon
