Eluppachatti Barnyard millet dosa

Eluppachatti is a pan or a kadai, typically made with iron. My grand mother used to make dosa in an iron kadai. The dosa will be very crispy, tasty and very healthy. I customized the concept and tried making Barnyard millet dosa in an iron pan.

Preparation time approx 15 minutes.

Soaking time 6 hours

fermentation time overnight.


  • 1 cup urad dal
  • 3 cup barnyard
  • 1tsp methi
  • A fist full of poha.


Soak Barnyard millet for 6 hours.

Wash and soak  urad dal, methi and poha together for 3 hours.

First grind urad dal, methi and poha in a wet grinder. You can use mixer grinder also for grinding). Add water little by little. When it is done ( took around 35 minutes in wet  grinder to grind) add barnyard millet with urad dal batter. Grind smoothly. At the end add salt and grind.

Take out and keep in a box for fermentation.( i have fermented overnight and used the batter next day morning)

Heat the Iron kadai.


Add little oil. Keep the stove in slow to medium flame. Add a big ladle full of batter. Do not spread it. Pour 1 tsp of thil oil.Close it with a lid. When one side is crispy flip it. Add little oil to make it more crispy. In slow fire make it crispy.
