Barley-Oats-Quinoa-Ragi Dosai/Crepe

Good to Know - Millet is highly nutritious, non-glutinous, is not an acid forming food so is soothing and easy to digest. In fact, it is considered to be one of the least allergenic and most digestible grains available and it is a warming grain so will help to heat the body in cold or rainy seasons and climates. It is nearly 15% protein, contains high amounts of fiber, B-complex vitamins including niacin, thiamin, and riboflavin, the essential amino acid methionine,lecithin, and some vitamin E. It is particularly high in the minerals iron, magnesium, phosphorous, and potassium. The seeds are also rich in phytochemicals, including Phytic acid, which is believed to lower cholesterol, and Phytate, which is associated with reduced cancer risk.

This looks like a great recipe. However I do not have any chia powder. What I substitute this with?
Is the whole barley the same as pearl barley?

If you have flax seed powder substitute that with Chia powder. I used Chia powder so that it is easier to make and the batter doesn't stick to the griddle. If you don't have flax seed, to make a small pancake. If you don't have any problem in removing from the griddle go ahead otherwise use two tbsp of rice flour. Whole barley is different from Pearl barley. Pearl barley is like white rice and Whole barley is wholesome one without any polishing.
