I referred this recipe from Padhu’s Kitchen . I do not have whole pearl millet here. I am making use of kambu flour. In this recipe, I have used kambu maavu and followed a fermented kambu dosa batter. My personal opinion is it has a little of bitterness in the dosa. So instead of a direct dosa, I am going to add little onions, chopped chillies, asafoetida and cumin seeds. This will give a nice flavor and taste. This Adai does not need any side dish. If you wish to take a side dish, better try with tangy chutneys.
