Karuppu Kavuni arisi Dosa/Black Rice Dosa is a crispy dosa that is made out of super healthy Black rice aka "Karuppu Kavuni Arisi".

I know the moment I say...Karuppu kavuni ...all you remember is Chettinad special Karuppu kavuni sweet that is prepared using jaggery๐Ÿ˜. Of course, I wanted to try that recipe but before that, I tried my hands on grinding a dosa batter to see how the dosa turns out to be. This dosa is similar to my Mappillai samba Dosa which is made out of indigenous rice Mappillai samba. 

Not to mention, how happy I was when my Mappillai Samba Dosa recipe was a super-duper hit and got posted in prestigious Discover Chennai magazine and even got published in the rice calendar of the renowned organic seller "Sahaja Organics". This was really motivating for me and drove me to discover many indigenous rice varieties that are on the verge of disappearing and come up with nice recipes.

Coming to our recipe of the day Karuppu Kavuni arisi Dosa/Black Rice Dosa, I would say that this dosa turned out to be super crispy and delicious. You can, of course, find that from my picture. I did not try Idli with the batter since all my batter was over by making crispy dosas  ๐Ÿ˜. The next reason is, Dosas are the perfect way to introduce something healthy to your kids than idli. Since we all are obsessed with eating white fluffy idlis...if we make some dark-colored idli, they will immediately say no to the dish without even tasting it๐Ÿ‘Ž. Hope all mummies are agreeing with me ๐Ÿ˜

This is just a basic dosa recipe, you can make podi dosa, cheese dosa, tomato uthappamBeetroot uthappam, methi dosa, cauliflower masala dosa,  paneer masala dosa, and masala dosa

Why not you give a try in your kitchen and leave your comments on how it turned out to be๐Ÿ˜Š???

3) After soaking, discard the water and grind it to a dosa batter. 

4) Add salt to the batter and mix well. 

5) Leave it to ferment. Fermentation depends on weather conditions sometimes it might take overnight and some times just a few hours.

6) Once fermented, your Karuppu Kavuni arisi Dosa batter is ready.

7) Take a small quantity of the batter in a mixing bowl and add enough water to make dosa batter consistency.

8) Heat a dosa Tawa and drizzle some flavourful gingelly oil.

9) Pour a ladle of batter and spread it into a round shape.

10) Drizzle oil on the sides of the dosa and set the flame to low-medium. 

11) Close it with a lid and leave it to cook till it turps super crispy.

Your Karuppu Kavuni arisi Dosa/Black Rice Dosa is ready. Pair it with coconut chutney, green chutney,  red chutney or sambar.

1) Since we are using Karuppu Kavuni arisi....the dosas might get burnt easily if you are making dosas in high flame... so it's better to give some extra care while making the dosa.

2) If you leave the batter to ferment for too long, dosas will come up with a sour taste.

3) If you are purely making dosas with black rice, you can even switch idli rice with dosa rice.
