Today is World Diabetics Day and this post is dedicated to the same. A few of my close family members have diabetics and when Swati pinged me about a post for the same, I was happy to do the same. It is really nice to see her interest in creating the awareness and I am glad to be part of it. This is a simple crepe made with whole wheat flour. It is similar to the pancakes and is cooked on a griddle. It needs no fermentation unlike the regular dosai and can be made in a jiffy. I have added a couple of tbsp of sooji to add some crispness, but it is totally optional. Off to the recipe.
Crepes made with whole wheat flour.
- whole wheat flour - 1 cup
- rava - 2 tbsp (optional)
- salt - to taste
- cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
- onion - 1/4 cup - chopped
- cilantro - 2 tsp - chopped (kothamalli)
- jalapeno - 2 tsp - chopped (green chillies can also be used) - adjust to taste
- curry leaves - few
- oil - 1/2 tsp + for cooking the dosa
- mustard seeds - 1/4 tsp
Mix all ingredients except oil and mustard seeds. Add water and form a batter that is slightly thinner than the regular dosai batter.
Heat 1/2 tsp of oil and splutter mustard seeds. Add this to the batter.
Heat a tawa and pour a ladle of batter and spread to form a circle. Add about 1/2 tsp of oil around the edges. Flip over in a minute or two. Allow the other side to cook. Dosai is ready when both sides are golden brown and cooked.
Serve warm with chutney of choice.
