This dosa variety is a speciality in Azhvarthirunagari Temple of Navathirupathi, which is offered as Neivedhyam to Perumal and then distributed to the devotees. Salt is not added, but the spices gives a fantastic taste. Moreover jaggery syrup and pure ghee is poured over each dosa which increases the taste! I used whole jowar grains for this recipe and it turned out so good.
