Quinoa Red rice Dosa

Dosa is a quintessential breakfast recipe in South India which is eaten most of the days in a week. Quinoa Red rice dosa is a healthier option when compared to the normal dosa. If you are on a weight loss journey, then this can be one option for you. Quinoa Red rice dosa is super easy to make, crispy, healthy. These are gluten-free, vegan and, make a perfect breakfast recipe.

Quinoa

Quinoa is a super grain or superfood that has become popular in many places now. This is not a cereal grain but a seed. Quinoa is rich in proteins, vitamins, minerals, and fiber. This is a good source of plant protein. This is also gluten-free and recommended for people on a gluten-free diet. Quinoa is good for people with diabetes, thyroid problems, and those on a weight loss journey. We can substitute Quinoa in the place of rice. It can also be incorporated into our diet in many ways as porridge, salad, pulao or pilaf, etc., Quinoa has saponin in it so that we have to wash it well. Otherwise, the end product will taste bitter. 

Red Rice

The red rice I used here is Kerala red rice. The other names for this rice are Kerala Parboiled rice, Matta rice, Rosematta rice. It is from the Palakkad region of Kerala. These are unpolished rice and healthier than normal polished rice. We can use this rice like normal rice to make plain rice, idli, dosa, aapam. Instead of Kerala red rice, we can use brown rice or Idli rice. I adapted this recipe from my regular Idli Dosa batter recipe.

Urad dal & Fenugreek

Urad dal gives the creamy texture and the right proportion is required to make the perfect dosa. Fenugreek is an optional ingredient. We use this from a health point of view. It helps in reducing body heat and aids in digestion.

I love making dosa with traditional rice varieties. They add so much fibre and nutrition. Wholesome breakfast with sambar and chutney.

Very nice and crispy dosas. The batter has fermented so well.I must try out matta rice sometime. Heard that is also very healthy. Like rice quinoa also is a versatile grain and we can try out many recipes with the super grain.

Love the colour formed on this dosa. infact it is a great way to reduce on the rice and bring forth the seed power of quinoa.
