For 4 Flour Dosa 1/2 cup urad dal
1 tsp fenugreek (methi) seeds
1/2 cup bajra (black millet) flour
1/2 cup jowar (white millet) flour
1/2 cup ragi (nachni / red millet) flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour (gehun ka atta)
salt to taste
3 tsp oil for cooking
For Serving With 4 Flour Dosa sambhar
4 flour dosa
To make 4 flour dosa, combine the urad dal and fenugreek seeds in a deep bowl and soak it for 2 hours in enough water.
Drain well and blend in a mixer till smooth using approx. ¾ cup of water.
Transfer the mixture into a deep bowl, add the bajra flour, jowar flour, nachni flour, whole wheat flour, salt and approx. 1¾ cups of water and mix very well using a whisk. Cover with a lid and keep aside to ferment overnight.
Next day, mix very well again.
Heat a non-stick tava (griddle), sprinkle a little water on the tava (griddle) and wipe it off gently using a muslin cloth.
Pour a ladleful of the batter on it and spread it in a circular motion to make a 200 mm. (8”) diameter thin circle.
Smear ¼ tsp of oil over it and along the edges and cook on a medium flame till the 4 flour dosa turns brown in colour and crisp from both the sides.
Fold the 4 flour dosa over to make a semi-circle or a roll.
Repeat with the remaining batter to make 11 more 4 flour dosas.
Serve the 4 flour dosa immediately with sambhar.
