According to Wikipedia – Red rice is a special variety of rice that is red in color. It derives its rich red colour from an antioxidant called anthocyanins. This antioxidant is beneficial to reduce symptoms of inflammation, cancer prevention and weight loss management. Red rice is generally unhulled or partially hulled rice which has a red husk, rather than the much more common brown. Red rice has a nutty flavor, and a high nutritional value, as the germ of the rice is left intact. It is packed with nutrients such as B-vitamins, iron, calcium and zinc. I love making dosas and idlis with different grains. Instead of making dosas always with white rice, make healthy choice like brown rice, red rice, millets etc. Today we will learn how to make healthy Red Rice dosa following this easy recipe.

Wash and soak rice and urad dal separately for 4-5 hours.
Grind dal for 20 minutes or until light and fluffy, sprinkling water from time to time.
Grind rice to a smooth paste adding water from time to time.
Mix both ground dal and rice together adding salt needed. Leave it to ferment overnight. If you are new to making dosas, check out my detailed post on how to make dosa and how to grind idli and dosa batter.
Heat a tawa, when it is hot, pour a ladle of batter in the center of the tawa. Spread it in a circular motion.
Drizzle a tsp of oil around the dosa. When the corners start lifting up, flip it over to the other side. Drizzle another half tsp of oil and cook until done.
