Red Rice Dosa

Variety of dosa recipes are a must for a South Indian home cook. Dosas are not just masala dosas as many think , they are much more. There is so much variety, so many recipes to play with. The end result is always tasty, delicious dosas for everyone to enjoy! This red rice dosa is one such great alternative to prepare.
I had raw red rice at home and also some red rice poha (flattened rice/avalakki). The best way to use red rice is to make red rice dosa, you get a lovely coloured dosa and the texture is crispy on the outside and soft inside.

Red rice dosa is made pretty much the same way as the regular dosa. See my recipes for regular dosa batter and masala dosa. I had also made a very crude video for making dosas (making food videos is a challenge, time-wise and effort-wise). You can make crisp dosas without excessive oil right at home! Serve red rice dosa with any variety of chutney you like, aloo masala and sambar.

Notes
You can also use regular poha instead of red rice poha

Batter should not be very thin

Ensure to pick and clean red raw rice, it might have some residual stones as it is not processed much
