Kindly note there are two dosa recipes in this post .. one is the barnyard millet dosa , the second is the millet sabudana dosa for which i have given a video .

Barnyard millet dosa 

You will be surprised to see how this almost resembles and also tastes like Rava dosa or Neer dosa.

The best part is the easy recipe and the addition of grated potatoes while grinding gives it an amazing soft and tasty feel.

Dhaniya/coriander leaves chutney ( vrat/fast recipe) can be the perfect dip for this yummy dosa.


1 cup samo/ Barnyard millets  Millets/Moraiyo /Varai/ Kuthiraivali
1 medium  peeled grated potato ( grated raw potato or cooked mashed potato)
Pinch sendha namak ( rock salt)
Oil or ghee to roast dosas.

1 tsp cumin seeds
2 tsp finely chopped green chillies
Some chopped coriander leaves.


Soak the samo/Moraiyo/ Kuthiraivali millets   for 3 hours  after washing and draining water. Soak in clean water.
After 3 hours of soaking grind to smooth paste along with grated potato  in a blender.

Add some water to thin it out like Rava dosa batter or Neer dosa batter, add salt, chopped green chillies, coriander leaves, some cumin seeds
Mix well. Try to rest batter for 15 minutes for better dosas., though not necessary.

Now heat a griddle, grease well, wipe it off.
Stir the thin batter well and drop a small ladle full of batter starting from outer rim of pan and quickly filling the gaps til you make a round shape.
Add drops of oil or ghee around the edges to get a crispy finish.

Serve hot with refreshing dhaniya chutney or peanut curd chutney.
Can also serve witth some yummy faraali sambar.
