Jowar Dosa: Vegan, Gluten-free Sorghum Pancakes

Jowar Dosa - Healthy Recipe
Jowar Dosa

This recipe for Jowar Dosa comes from Malar of Malar’s Kitchen. This  is a blog I follow avidly for two reasons: the traditional recipes (my weakness) and healthy recipes (my aspiration). I have bookmarked so many of Malar’s recipes that it will take me a month’s vacation to try all of them. 🙂

Malar is one of the bloggers I interact with regularly through comments on blogs and I cannot imagine why I did not ask her for a guest post much earlier. However, it is never too late and here is a delicious and healthy Jowar Dosa that Malar made for me. It is gluten-free and vegan to boot.

When I requested Malar for a guest post, she agreed instantaneously and gave me quite a selection of recipes to choose from. I chose Jowar Dosa because I was intrigued by the sound of this healthy recipe. All I have ever done with Jowar is made Bhakri.

Without much ado, I turn you over to Malar but not before asking you to read more of her lovely recipes at her:

Thank you, Malar, for this delicious Jowar Dosa!


I am so delighted to be in Aruna’s space. According to me she is an expert and gives her heart and soul in every recipe that she puts up. I specially love all her traditional recipes. She has always been kind and leaves lovely comments on my posts. I was so excited when she asked me for a guest post, it is such an honor for me.

Tips

  • This batter is a little thicker than normal dosa batter and thinner than idli batter.
  • You can add any veggies like carrot, cabbage of your choice and mix with batter.
  • Jowar tends to break the dosa texture, so make sure it is cooked well the first side only then flip to the other side.
