Millet Onion Oothappam



  • Cholam / Jowar - 1cup
  • Chola Arisi / Jowar Rice - 1 cup
  • Kudiraivaali / Barnyard Millet - 1cup
  • Urad Dhal - 1/2 cup
  • Salt
  • Onion and Coriander Leaves For Topping
  • Oil to drizzle



  • Wash and soak millets in a container for 7-8 hours.
  • Wash and soak the urad dhal 20 minutes before you start grinding the batter.
  • First grind urad dhal with required water in a wet grinder to a soft and fluffy batter. t will take from 20 - 30 minutes to get the required fluffiness.
  • Transfer to a large container.
  • Now in the same grinder add the soaked millets with enough water and grind to a smooth batter.
  • Transfer the batter to the container with urad dhal batter.
  • Add enough salt and mix well.
  • Cover and let it ferment overnight. Make sure the container is large enough so that the batter can easily double in volume without spilling.
  • Beat the batter to remove gas and transfer to a container which is compact enough to hold the batter. This will go into the fridge and so there will be no further fermentation.
  • Heat a kadai and pour a ladle full of batter on it.
  • Slightly spread the batter to form a thick dosa.
  • Top it with onions and drizzle little oil on the sides.
  • Cook on medium flame until the base startes browning.
  • Flip the dosa and cook the other side too.
  • Serve hot with chutney of your choice.
