Karuppu ulundhu dosai (Black urad dosa) is a healthy nutritious breakfast and simple, easy to prepare. Quick video, step by step pictures recipe.

I have already prepared this many years back after my mom in law told me. Rarely buy whole black gram/ karuppu ulundhu. Even if I buy make dal makhani several times. Though I want to try this dosai again and blog it. This is wonderful breakfast with loaded protein and  carb from sago/ javvarisi. You can soak in the night, morning grind and make it. Very easy right?

I have used 1/4 cup sago in this, but you can double the quantity. Rice flour also can be increased. But I love the texture of this recipe very much. Just make sure to cook in low flame for perfect results. This dosai doesn’t need any fermentation, just like presarattu. If you are small family, half the recipe. Turns out soft, slightly crisp at the browned parts. If sago is added more, it looks beautiful and I remember my MIL told the name of the dish as muthu dosai (pearl dosai) as she saw in a cookery show.
