About Recipe

Moong dal is very nutritious and easy to digest. There are many ways of making moong dal dosa and here I am using split green moong dal but you can use whole green moong dal for making this dosa.

                     Moong dal dosa is served with ginger chutney or tomato chutney. But can also be served with coconut chutney or any other chutney or pickle.

INGREDIENTS :

 

Measurement cup used 1 cup = 240 ml

 

Split green moong dal / green gram dal OR  whole green moong dal  – 1 cup

Raw rice – 1/3 – ½ cup

Ginger – 1 inch (chopped)

Cumin seeds/jeera – 1 tsp

Green chilies – 2

Coriander leaves – 2-3 tbsp

Onion – 1 big (finaly chopped) optional

Red chili powder – ½ tsp (optional)

Salt to taste

Oil or ghee – for applying on dosa

Water as needed

 

 

 

Method ;

 Take split green moong dal and rice in a big vessel and rinse them 3-4 times.

Soak them for 3-4 hours or over night.

Drain off the water.

Take half of the dal-rice in a blender, add ginger, green chili, cumin, coriander leaves, salt and some water.

Blend it till smooth and transefer this to the another vessel.

Again blend the remaining dal – rice by adding some water till smooth and mix with the previous batter.

The consistency is similar to the dosa batter.

After making dosa batter you can make dosa immitiately or keep it for resting for 2-3 hours. When I made dosa I made immitiatly.

 

For preparing dosa

 Heat non-stick or thick iron tava over medium hot.

Apply 2-3 drops of oil and rub it with pepper towel.

Pour 1  ladle batter on tava and spread the batter to make thin dosa. Lightly scrape the thick part with the wooden spoon to make dosa even.

Sprinkle 1/2 -1 tsp ghee or butter or oil at the edges.

 Cook dosa over low-medium flame to get crisp dosa.

When the dosa cooked one side flip it other side and cook. Or if your dosa is very thin just cook one side.

There is another method of making this dosa is after spereading dosa batter on tava sprinkle some finely chopped onion and red chili powder. Its upto you.

Serve dosa with chutney.

 

 

 

Tips ;

 Do not add more water while grinding. The consistency is similar to the dosa batter.

Cook dosa over low- medium flame to get crisp dosa.
