Bajra neer dose/Pearl millet savoury crepes

Sajje neer dose/Bajra neer dose/Pearl millet savoury crepes

Quite natural is the thought of every Indian woman who worries as what to cook to feed her family. I am quite spontaneous in that aspect. I don't prefer planning much ahead of time or in advance as it just adds to my anxiety. It is like I get up in the morning, scan my kitchen cabinet and just like that idea drops in. People may not believe but it is so at my place. I do plan only when I need fermentation, soaking, resting time etc for some dishes, otherwise it is all instant yet healthy as far as possible. So here is my sajje neer dose that I did for breakfast today morning. Pearl millet or sajje or bajra is a very healthy grain which is energy-packed and can also be called a superfood. Loaded with insoluble fiber that helps you lose weight, lower cholesterol, and lower blood sugar levels. Let's see how I prepared this bajra neer dose. 

Ingredients :

Bajra flour - 1 cup. 

Water - 2 ¼ cup. 

Chopped onion - 1/2cup. 

Chopped coriander leaves - 2-3 tsp. 

Chopped curry leaves - 2-3 tsp. 

Green chillis - 1 finely chopped. 

Salt to taste. 

Ghee to roast. 

Recipe :

  • Mix bajra flour, water slowly without forming lumps. Add salt to taste. 
  • Add chopped onions, green chillis, coriander leaves and curry leaves. 
  • Mix and let it rest for 15 mins. 
  • The flour settles in the bottom usually. So after 15mins when you check, mix well. 
  • Heat a griddle, when hot pour ladle full over the griddle, don't spread as we usually do for other lentil crepes and cook without covering for 20-30secs.
  • Add 1tsp. ghee and spread it all over the crepe. 
  • Keep cooking another 30 secs. Slowly they will be fully roasted, crisp and ready to be removed and served hot. Enjoy them with chutney or sambar or even with honey or a dollop of yogurt. 

  • Adjust a bit with water if needed as the consistency should be watery and it at times depends on the quality of the flour. So it might be a little more that 2¼ or little less than that for 1 cup of flour. 

Enjoy the dish! n don't forget Eat and Eat little MORE.. :)
