A popular fermented product, dosa was prepared by incorporating bengal gram brokens, a by-product of legume milling industry at 10, 20 and 30 % levels. On the basis of sensory evaluation, the 30 % bengal gram brokens substituted dosa was analyzed for its chemical composition and antioxidant activity against control dosa. Incorporation of brokens in dosa resulted in a significant increase in crude protein, crude fat, crude fibre, ash, total soluble sugar and total dietary fibre content as compared to control dosa. Likewise, antioxidant activity was also increased in bengal gram brokens incorporated dosa.
