    Nandhu,

    The English name for kambu flour is Millet flour(I hope).We can get Millet flour from local Grocery stores (like kroger and cub foods) or from indian grocey stores. We prepared this Kambu dosai using pearl millet(kambu) grains.

    Kambu is called Bajra in hindi. More about Bajra, see here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pearl_millet .

    Make sure you look for pearl millet flour. There are other types of “millets” that do not cook or taste like bajra or pearl millet.

    Is fermentation not required for this – it is after all called dosa?
