Rice is a versatile grain that is a staple of many people around the world, especially in Asia. There are different types of rice, such as black rice, white rice, brown rice, sticky rice, and long-grain basmati rice. These varieties have different nutritional content and health benefits. White rice is perhaps the most common type of rice, which is used to prepare sweet and savoury dishes including, kheer, dosa, idli, or simple steamed rice. But did you know you can prepare the same dishes with other varieties too?
In this article, we’ll focus on a specific variety – brown rice, and explain its benefits and how to make lip-smacking brown rice dosa. Organic brown rice is a whole grain, implying that it has three parts of the grain kernel. The outer layer, which is full of fibre and is called the bran; the core is also known as the germ; and the starchy middle layer that is called the endosperm .
Unlike brown rice, white rice is more refined, implying that it does not contain the bran and the germ. It is also the main difference between brown and white rice in addition to their obvious colour differences. When the bran and the germ are removed, and only the endospore is retained, it removes much of the nutrients and fibre. That is why, if you are a dosa lover, you should ditch white rice and prepare healthy brown rice dosa instead.
Before we reveal the tasty brown rice dosa recipe, let us look at the nutritional value of the grain and the potential health benefits of having it daily.

As seen above, brown rice is full of essential vitamins and minerals, along with protein and good fats. Replacing it with white rice may be a great decision if you are planning to follow a balanced diet. If you are a huge South Indian food lover, then switch from white to brown rice dosa and enjoy some of these nutritional benefits:
Brown rice dosa is a healthier version of normal dosa that doesn’t look or taste any different. It is as crispy and flavorful as its white counterpart and provides umpteen health benefits. To make brown rice dosa, you’ll need the following ingredients:
Use your hands instead of a spoon to mix the dough. The heat radiated from your body increases the fermentation process.
The red chillies or green chillies on top along with the oven light provide the perfect temperature for fermenting the batter.
If you don’t have a brush to smear oil on the pan, use a cut onion. It helps to remove the dosa perfectly, without sticking or breaking it.
