sanwa dosa recipe | crispy varai dosa for Navratri | barnyard millet dosa | upvas dosa | vrat fasting recipe |

Sanwa Dosa is a crispy, flavour-packed dosa just like the Rava Dosa, one of South India’s most famous snacks. Once cooked, it is difficult to differentiate between Sanwa Dosa and Rava Dosa!

This is good because you get the same taste with a better grain, and also it can be had on fasting days. An innovative batter of sanwa millet and boiled potatoes, perked up with cumin seeds, green chillies, etc., is used to make this yummy dosa.

While cooking the Sanwa Dosa, make sure you cook it on a medium-low flame till it is crisp. Do not remove it while soft or increase the flame to high, because that will ruin the texture of the dosa.

You can also try other dosas like Nachni Dosa and Quinoa Dosa .
