Quinoa Mysore Masala Dosa is a no rice savory crepe made with a mix of quinoa and lentils. Quinoa dosa is smeared with a thin layer of red chutney and stuffed with potato masala.
This No Rice Mysore Masala Dosa with Quinoa is similar to the Mysore Masala Dosa except the batter is ground with quinoa and different dals. Mysore Masala Dosa is typically smeared with a Spicy Red Chutney, stuffed to Potato Masala, and served with different chutneys and sambar.
The last time I made this dosa, I had made different chutneys, this time I just had to do with Coconut Chutney and Sambar. However, this surely makes a delicious breakfast dish and very filling too. Not to mention this being no rice, it is so healthy as well.
I am doing AtoZ Indian Breakfast Dishes. Though Quinoa is not an Indian origin ingredient, Q is a touch alphabet and I had to resort to adaption. We make dosas very often and have more than 101 Dosa Varieties. This collection includes both fermented and instant dosas. So when I was thinking about what to make for Q, I came across this recipe.
Some versions of Dosa requires only soaking and no fermentation. Some can be made right away as it uses flours etc.

Quinoa is a gluten-free seed that can make a great substitute for rice and other grains. Those these are quantified as a “pseudo-cereal”, its actually a seed from the grass. There are nearly 120 different varieties defined and is found in different colours, the most common quinoa colors are white, red, and black. I have used the mixed variety quinoa for the dosa today.
Ingredient Used to make this Quinoa Mysore Masala dosa.
When it comes to this Quinoa Dosa, we can make dosas without fermentation. However, we tried fermenting as it makes the batter more flavourful and healthy to digest as the batter becomes light.
Mysore Masala dosa has two different parts included. The spicy red chutney smeared on it and then stuffed with potato masala.
The Potato Masala applied on top is thick and not runny. Spread a layer of potato masala after you apply a layer of red chutney.
The dosa is then covered over this and served with side dishes of chutney of choice.
Quinoa comes in two varieties, plain and coloured.
