Here is a breakfast recipe that is easy to prepare and delicious to eat.


  • 1 cup samak ke chawal (barnyard millet)
  • 1/2 cup sabudana (tapioca pearls)
  • 1/4 cup singhare ka atta (water chestnut flour)
  • 1/4 cup chopped coriander leaves
  • 1/4 cup grated coconut
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper powder
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 green chili, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp grated ginger
  • Rock salt (sendha namak) to taste
  • Ghee or oil for cooking


  • Rinse the samak ke chawal, sabudana, and singhare ka atta in cold water separately. Then, soak them in enough water for 2-3 hours.
  • After 2-3 hours, drain the water from all three and grind them together in a mixer to make a smooth batter. Add little water if required to make a batter of pouring consistency. Transfer the batter to a large mixing bowl.
  • Add chopped coriander leaves, grated coconut, black pepper powder, cumin seeds, green chili, grated ginger, and rock salt to the batter. Mix well and let it sit for 10-15 minutes.
  • Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat and brush some ghee or oil on it. Pour a ladleful of batter on the center of the pan and spread it in a circular motion to make a thin dosa.
  • Cook the dosa on medium heat until the edges turn golden brown and the center is cooked. Flip it over and cook for another minute or until golden brown.
  • Serve the samak dosa hot with coconut chutney or any fasting chutney of your choice.


  • Make sure to soak the samak ke chawal, sabudana, and singhare ka atta for at least 2-3 hours before grinding to ensure a smooth batter.
  • The consistency of the batter should be like that of a regular dosa batter.
  • You can add grated carrot, finely chopped onions, or boiled potatoes to the batter to make it more nutritious and flavorful.
  • Always cook the dosa on medium heat to ensure it is evenly cooked and crispy.
  • Use ghee for cooking the dosa as it gives a nice flavor and helps in digestion.
