Chanadal - Brown Rice - Quinoa Dosa

"Bye Chanadal brown rice quinoa dosa. Buh Byeee"

What am I saying?

Ok! Actually my boy has this habit of saying bye to everything. For example when we go for a walk , he says "Bye tree" , "Bye car" , "bye shadow" (after we pass the shadow of a tree) and so on and on and on...

The other day , I mean really long back other day, we went out and sat for sometime, and after a while ,I said to my son, "Common, let's walk now". So my cutie pie gets up, looks at the place he had been sitting and he says "Bye sit, buh byeee" !

The other day, the recent other say, he went under the table and he was playing there. And then I called him to come out to have dinner, then he comes out  and he says "Bye under the table". :)) He He He ..Isn't that so funny. God my son's a small clown who keeps us laughing on our toes with his cute little interpretations of his world.

I guess the world in the eyes of a kid is ..........I don't know. I really don't know. It's difficult to explain.

So coming to this recipe.

Chanadal- 1 cup
Brown rice- 1/2 cup
Quinoa- 1/2 cup
Methi seeds- 1 teaspoon

For topping:
Veggies of your choice chopped finely. I used cabbage ,yellow pepper and corn.
You could even use spring onions/carrots/green pepper/cauliflower.

Wash and soak all the ingredients for approx 8 hrs or overnight. Grind it in a blender adding water and make it like any other normal dosa consistency.  No fermentation is necessary.
Pour a ladle of batter on a tava which is on medium high, spread veggies on it and lightly press it with a spatula.
Spread a spoon of oil on it, close it with a lid. When it is lightly browned underneath flip it, keep it for few seconds and then remove, serve it with chutney of your choice.
We had this with  tomato chutney and it tastes better with this than coconut chutney.

Enjoy this healthy dosa!

Yeah...You're right!!

My baby got his first homework!!!
Wait..How did u know that?
Did I somehow give it away :(
Wonder How! it is!

I do not know why both of us got so excited looking at his homework. That's the magic the kids have on their parents. Every small thing they do or say ,gets the parents stand on their toes.

And the magic continues...
