Mysore barely dosa recipe | barley urad dal dosa | healthy Mysore barely dosa | with 20 amazing images.

We are always on the lookout for recipes that make good use of different grains, not just rice and wheat. One such journey led us to this brilliant Mysore barely dosa.

barley urad dal dosa is a nutritious dosa made with a batter of barley and urad, perked up with a tongue-tickling Mysore chutney. The Mysore chutney is famous for its balanced blend of varied flavour tones such as sweet, sour and spicy.

The awesome texture of this dosa together with the lingering flavour and aroma of the chutney make it a great hit with all age groups.

I would like to suggest 4 tips to make the perfect Mysore barely dosa. 1. Ensure that the Mysore chutney is a little thick which will help in easy spreading on the dosa. We have used around 1 cup of water for blending. 3. Pour a ladleful of the batter on it and spread it in a circular motion to make a 225 mm. (9”) diameter circle. Do not apply any sort of fat on the tava and make sure the tava is not too hot nor too cold. 4. Smear ½ tsp of ghee and 1 tbsp of the mysore chutney evenly over the dosa using a spatula over it and cook on a medium flame till the dosa turns golden brown in colour and crisp. Before scraping make sure it is cooked along the edges.

See why we like this healthy barely urad dal dosa. Barley is diabetic and pregnancy friendly. A high fibre diet for years has been paired with reduced risk of heart disease. The fiber (2.73 g) from barley helps reduce blood cholesterol levels. Urad dal being rich in phosphorus it works with calcium to build our bones, high in fibre and good for heart, good for lowering cholesterol and good for diabetes.

While the flavour is kind of self-sufficient, you can add a cup of sambhar and some coconut chutney to the meal to make it even more special.

I do not want to add tamarind pulp. What can we add in its substitute?

   Hi, you can use kokam extract instead of tamrind pulp. Or you can avoid using it completely.
