There are several forgotten gems from South Indian cuisine, which people are vehemently attempting to bring back to the fore now. This delicious Farali Dosa is an example. While people commonly make regular dosa or quick-fix ones out of wheat flour or semolina, they forget that very tasty dosas can be made out of millet flours too!


The combination of sama and rajgira flour gives rise to a sumptuous dosa that is sure to please your palate on a fasting day. Sour buttermilk is added to the batter to help in fermenting. The fermentation time is just two hours, so you do not even have to plan for this dosa the previous day itself.


This Farali Dosa has a wonderful, crispy texture if made thin and had immediately. If you make it too thick or have it later, it might be chewy. Enjoy this hot and fresh with Peanut Curd Chutney or Faraali Idli-Sambhar. You can also try other faraali recipes like the Maharashtrian favourites – Upvaas Thalipeeth and Faraali Misal, or the popular Gujarati Layered Handva .

Other Fasting recipes

  1. Vrat, Upwas or fasts is observed by may Hindus on auspicious festivals like Navratri, Shivratri or even days like ekadashi or Karwa chauth. The ingredients consumed during these fasting days differ from religion to religion and person to person. So, if you are not consuming any ingredients mentioned in this farali recipe, simply skip it. Like farali dosa recipe | fasting dosa made from sanwa millet & rajgira flour | faraali dosa | then below are some of my go-to recipes that can be consumed during faral :

Batter for Farali Dosa

  1. To make the farali dosa batter, clean and wash the sanwa millet. Soak it in enough water for at least 2 hours. It will look like this after soaking.
  2. After 2 hours, drain it with the help of a fine sieve.
  3. Transfer this to a mixer jar and blend to a smooth mixture using 2 tbsp of water. If you add less water, then the texture would be grainy and if you add too much water the farali dosa batter would be runny so, be careful while adding water.
  4. Now, add the rajgira flour. Alternatively, you can even make use of sabudana flour or singhare ka atta.
  5. Add buttermilk. We have used sour buttermilk to enhance the flavour of faraali dosa.
  6. Spice it up with ginger-green chilli paste. If you do not consume ginger during fasts then simply add green chilli paste.
  7. Add rock salt as we are making these dosa for fasting.
  8. Mix well to form a lump-free, smooth batter.
  9. Cover with a lid and keep aside to ferment overnight.
  10. When you open the lid in the morning, you will notice a layer of bubbles on top and also a prominent sour smell  indicating the batter is well fermented. It won’t rise up or increase in volume like our regular idli/dosa batter.

How to make vrat ka dosa

  1. To prepare upwas dosa, heat a non-stick tava (griddle) till nice and hot, lower the flame and pour a ladleful of the batter on the tava (griddle).
  2. Spread it in a circular motion to make a 125 mm. (5") diameter thin dosa. Do not make a very thick dosa otherwise it will become rubbery.
  3. Smear a little oil over the dosa and along the edges for it to cook. To make a wholesome stuffed dosa, you can prepare vrat ki aloo sabji and spread it over the dosa.
  4. Once the bottom side has become crisp and brown, flip the dosa and cook on the other side.
  5. Once it has cooked from both sides, just fold it over to make a semi-circle and remove on a plate.
  6. Repeat steps 1 and 5 to make 7 more farali dosas | fasting dosa made from sanwa millet & rajgira flour | faraali dosa |.
  7. Serve the faraali dosa immediately with peanut curd chutney. You can enjoy this samak rice dosa during navratri or shivratri fasting.
  8. Buckwheat Khichdi, Singhada Sheera, Potato Wafers are some other popular vrat recipes that you may like.
