There has to be some kind of Idli/Dosai batter readily available in fridge. Apart from whipping up quick breakfast, many times I have eaten Dosai/Idli as lunch with Sambar or transformed leftover idlis to upma/ Kaima Idli. If there is no batter in stock I immediately soak whatever ingredients available at home and prepare a batter. We all know Brown Rice and its health benefits. At the same time there are also endless debates whether Brown Rice is really “healthy” compared to White Rice. To be honest I have been following this one rule when it comes to food. Anything in moderation is fine.. Given the amount of information we get to read aka “Scroll” through in various social media pages it is essential for us to be mindful about what info we consume and how to use them wisely.
I use a good mix of Millets/White Rice/Brown Rice/Quinoa/Couscous/Bulgur Wheat in my cooking. Both the mini and the husband prefers only White Rice for lunch I make Idli/Dosai batters with them or prepare Upma,Kichdi,Sambar Saadham etc for us adults. Little one is still very very picky when it comes to food 🙆🙄 So I am just going with the flow for now.. Sneaking veggies, fruits, different grains wherever possible is my way of trying to make her eat variety of foods. She absolutely loved this Brown Rice Dosai and Idli versions and have been making it regularly for the past few months.
With the following measurement you can prepare upto 12 Idlis and atleast 12-15 medium sized Dosais depending on the size of the Tawa
