Thooyamalli Rice is one of the idegineous rice variety which lost its value after green revolution. It is a wonderful rice with loads of nutritional benefits. I have tried Thooyamalli rice dosa which is much healthier comparing to normal dosas.

3) Leave the thooyamalli rice batter overnight to ferment.

4) Next day, your batter is ready. Take required amount of batter and add enough water to get Dosa batter consistency.

5) Heat a dosa tawa, drizzle some oil and spread it. Take a ladle full of batter and spread it in circular motion.

6) Drizzle few more oil on sides and close it with a lid to cook in medium flame.

7) Dosa turns golden brown and ready to be served. Do the same with remaining batter and enjoy your thooyamalli rice dosas with your favourite side dish.
