Chola Dosai / Jowar Dosa

An amazing  Dosa  with very mild sweetness  and unique flavour of Jowar / Cholam. When I made this Jowar dosa for the first time I was surprised to get such a crispy, golden dosa. The same batter can be used to get fluffy Jowar idlis too.I started making it often since Jowar is the power house of many vitamins, minerals and it gives half the daily required protein..
