Jolada Dose / Sorghum Flour Crepes ~ Gluten Free Recipe

I was moved by one of the comments posted on my blog for "Rice Flour Poori" post. Kudos to that mother who tries her best to satisfy her 'milk and wheat intolerant' child! After reading this comment I read numerous articles about gluten intolerant children and adults and how much they miss these foods. While reading, I discovered that joldada hittu (Sorghum flour) and akki hittu (rice flour) and few other flours where mixed together to give a delicious pancake. Ting! flashed the idea of making dose!! yippee..I must say it was a hit at home. Since it was instant dosa recipe it made me much happier too. You all can give it a try if you love sorghum flour like us :)

Jolada Dose/Sorghum Flour Crepes or gluten free indian pancakes

You need the following to make :

Bili Jolada Hittu/ White Sorghum Flour - 2 cups (I had white sorghum flour bought from India so I have used it which is the best, you can use which ever is available at home to try it out)
White Rice Flour - 3/4 cup
Cornflour - 1tbsp (optional)
P.S : You can substiute with maida/plain flour for non-gluten free recipe
Salt, water

Seasoning : oil, jeera, broken red chillies, chopped curry leaves
Heat oil and add ingredients in the order mentioned. Add this seasoning to dosa batter and mix.

Mix everything  and make a runny batter which resembles pancake batter. Dosa tastes good if you allow the batter to sit aside for atleat half an hour.
Heat a tava/girdle. Rub oil over tava. Pour dosa batter over the tava and spread it in circles with the back of the spoon. When dosa is crisp from bottom turn it over and let it brown(cook) on the other side too. 
Remove it to a plate and enjoy with chutney of your choice. I made onion chutney and it was superbly delicious !

Onion Dose :
You can add chopped onions, coriander leaves, greeen chilli paste (click on it for recipe) and a teaspoon of grated coconut and leave it overnight in your refrigerator. Next day make dosa as usual for delicious onion dose!

wow..thats something v new....Thankfully I dont have to have prepare jolad rotti to impress my MIL now :)

YOSEE said...

Good ,nutritious and easy to make invention LG, a " sabash !" for that :-)A big plus is that it can be spread like regular dosa with back of spoon- The usual (maida/ atta) flour dosa, (which has to be splashed around the tava), often breaks while lifting.

Hello Lakshmi:

I really liked your blog a lot. I visit it often after I very accidentally came across your wonderful blog. I made jolada dose this morning and loved it. Please visit my blog - ootathindi.blogspot.com whenever it is convenient. I have just started and since I am in the family way my entries are slowly trickiling in..Your work is amazing.. Keep it up. It feels so good to see Kannada items so well described and put up. Good work Lakshmi, keep it up.. I am from Bangalore, a Kannadiga married to a Tamilian. So my blog will have a mixture!!

jayasri said...

hi lakshmi this is new to me i am in for it.., I was talking to one of my friends who is from uttara karnataka, I wanted to jolada rotti which i love with badanekaayi yennagai, but i was scared to try it out with the flour here, she told me she tried twice it did not come out well, as I have already bought the flour i was thinking what to do, only thing comes to my mind is dosa, but never tried with any combinations.., now from ur recipe i can do it instantly howzit ?...., the dosa looks very nice.

Cant imagine how life would be for lactose and gluten intolerant people - esp kids!!

I 've never had jola flour when I was in bangalore. In the north we used to have makki ki roti...guess its the same flour. Next time I go to the India store here, I will have to looks for this!! I am feeling very lazy to cook now, and am thinking your neer dosa is the easiest to make now :-))))
