Just the beautiful golden colour of this Moong Dal Dosa is enough to make you drool! And fortunately it is so tasty it won’t let your appetite down.
Made of par-boiled rice and moong dal, soaked, ground and fermented, these dosas have a deliciously homely flavour and enticing crispness, which only fermented batter can bring about.
It tastes different from regular dosas as it uses moong instead of urad and also has an equal proportion of dal and rice. You will love to have this for Breakfast !
- Wash and soak the moong dal and par-boiled rice in enough water in a deep bowl for at least 3 hours. Drain.
- Combine the moong dal and par-boiled rice in a mixer and blend till smooth using approx. 1¼ cups of water.

- Heat a non-stick tava (griddle) and sprinkle a little water on the tava (griddle) and wipe it off gently using a muslin cloth.
- Pour a ladleful of the batter on it and spread it in a circular motion to make a 200 mm. (8”) diameter circle.

- Fold over to make a semi-circle or roll.
