Peanut Dosa

Cooks in: 20 Minutes Serves: 2 People

Peanut dosa is a special delicacy in some parts of Tamilnadu. Peanuts are a good source of protein and low in carbs. Their rich fibre content and low GI makes them diabetic friendly. Combining them with whole sorghum/jowar which is high in fibre makes the dish even more healthy. 


  • 1 Cup Whole Sorghum/Jowar/Cholam Grains
  • 1 Cup Idli Rice
  • 1/2 Cup Raw Peanuts
  • 3 Tbsp Urad Dal
  • 1/2 Tsp Fenugreek/Methi/Vendhayam  Seeds
  • 1.5 tsp Salt


  1. Wash and soak Jowar, urad dal and methi seeds for 4 hours, grind to a smooth batter, add salt and allow it to ferment for 5 hours.
  2. Meanwhile soak peanuts for 4 hours and grind smoothly. Mix this with the fermented dosa batter and let it sit for 30 minutes.
  3. Make excellent crispy dosas and serve with podi/sambar/chutney
