Horse gram is a healthy bean that’s rich in protein. I learnt this Horse gram dosa from my mom. We call it as hurali dose . . These dosas turn slight brown in colour (acquired from horse gram ) giving the dosas more appealing look . Typically they use horse gram and rice to make these dosas . But i omitted rice and added same proportion little millet ( saame rice ) .. and the out come was really awesome.

Millets proves that healthy food can very much satisfy our taste buds.With the goodness of millets , power-packed protein from horse gram .. .. .these dosas make one great healthy breakfast option .  

Few points to note while making Horse gram Dosa :
