Thinai is high in nutrition. It is also known as Foxtail Millet in english, Kangni in Hindi, I have prepared dosas with this healthy thinai / foxtail millet. This dosa is really healthy and tasty too, because  fresh green coriander leaves are added.


Thinai / foxtail millet         - 1 cup
Raw rice                                 - ½ cup
Methi seeds                           - 1 tsp
Coriader leaves                   - 1 small bunch
Green chillies                      - 8 nos
Small onions                       - 6 nos
Garlic                                     - 4 cloves(optional)
Salt                                         - to taste


Soak thinai/foxtail mlillet, rice, methi seeds together I enough water for 4 TO 6 hours.
Grind to a smooth paste adding chopped coriander leaves, green chillies, small onions, garlic and required salt.
Ferment it for 3 hours before preparing dosas.
Heat a tawa pour a ladle full of batter and spread it in circular motion from inside. 
Drizzle some oil over the dosa,.
Flip on to other side and cook for few seconds.
Remove dosa from the pan and serve hot with Idli chilli powder.
