Sorghum Adai Dosa Recipe / Jowar Adai Recipe / Cholam Adai Recipe - Millets Recipes

You all know that i have been using millets quite a lot now and i absolutely adore the flavour and taste of them. You can check out my recipes using millets here..The one sad thing is i am unable to find few more millets in my place. I have only jowar, thinai, kambu, ragi, barley,horsegram on hand. So you will be finding me using these millets again and again. You can check out my mom's tapioca adai, normal adai and my version of multigrain adai.

This is one recipe which i made a week back and i was so happy with the result. Because i didn't missed my normal adai dosa. It came out just perfect. And one more thing, after my successful attempt in this recipe, i used all the millets and made a millets adai today and it was a hit. Will share too soon..

The best pair with this adai is coconut chutney. This is so healthy to add it into your families breakfast. So try it out and let me know how it turned out..

Preparation Time : 10 mins
Soaking Time : 4 to 6 hours or overnight
Cooking time : 1 to 2 mins per dosa
Serves : 3 to 4


Cholam / Jowar / Sorghum - 1 cup
Chana Dal / Kadalai Paruppu - 1/2 cup
Rice - 1/3 cup ( I used normal ponni rice, you can use idli rice too)
Dry Red Chillies - 6 to 7
Asafoetida / Hing / Kaya Podi - 1/2 tsp
Onions - 1 medium size chopped finely
Green Chillies - 2 finely chopped
Ginger - 1 tblspn grated
Curry leaves a small handful 
Coriander leaves a small handful finely chopped
Salt to taste
Water as needed
Oil for frying dosa


Take jowar, rice, chana dal in a container and wash well. Now add some fresh water and soak it for 4 to 6 hours or overnight. I left it overnight.

Now take them in a blender along with dry red chillies and make into a little coarse puree. transfer it to a bowl.

Add in all the remaining ingredients except oil and mix well.

The batter should be thick and pouring consistency.

Heat a tawa, pour ladleful of batter and make dosa. Drizzle oil around the sides.  Cook for few minutes till it is golden, flip over and cook for few more mins.

Remove and serve hot with chutney.
