Moong Dal Dosa

Moong dal (pasi parupu) is very nutritious, needs less soaking and is easy to digest. I have used the yellow split moong dal for preparing this dosa. Moong dal dosa can be prepared in a jiffy. It is filling, saves a lot of cooking time without compromising on taste or nutrition. It comes very handy when you are tired or run out of dosa batter. All you have to do is to soak the dal. Grinding takes just a few minutes. Today we will learn how to make moong dal dosa following this easy recipe.

   Ingredients needed

   Split Moong dal/pasi paruppu -1 cup
   Ginger -1/2 inch piece
   Green chillies -2
   Jeera/cumin seeds - 1 tsp
   Asafoetida/hing - a pinch
   Coriander leaves - 1 tbsp finely chopped
   Onion -1 finely chopped (optional)
   Salt to taste
   Oil for making dosa


Preparation

Clean and soak moong dal for 3 - 4 hours.

Grind it to a smooth paste with ginger, green chillies and salt. The consistency of the batter should neither be thick nor thin.

Add cumin seeds, asafoetida and finely chopped coriander leaves. You can add onions if needed.

Method

Heat a nonstick tawa/cast-iron tawa, pour a ladle of the batter in the center of the tawa and spread it in a circular motion from the center to the outer corners of the tawa.

Drizzle a tsp of oil around the dosa.

After it is cooked, flip it over to the other side and drizzle another 1/2 tsp of oil around the dosa. When the other side is cooked, remove the dosa from tawa and serve hot.

Serve with any chutney or sambar of your choice.

  10. I have tried making dosa before with this recipe. I poured the batter on the pan with a ladle and then tried to spread but it the batter would start slipping on the pan. I did manage to spread it a little but it turned out to be very thick. What could be the problem? I have a non-stick pan and was cooking without oil. Should i make the batter thin?

  11. Probably the tawa was too hot or your batter too thick. That is the reason you are not able to spread the batter. Even if you use a non stick pan, you can use a little oil otherwise the dosa will be dry.
