The cereal and pulse combination makes this recipe a good source of quality protein. These thin, crisp dosas made of moong dal and rice make a terrific breakfast especially during your first trimester. The fibre and vitamin content of the recipe is also good due to the addition of parboiled rice. Parboiled rice is a thick variety of unpolished rice that is used to make South Indian snacks like idlis and dosas.
