DIRECTIONS

  • Wash and soak the moong dal and rice in plenty of water. (room temperature) for 2 hours.
  • Drain the dal and rice and grind them along with the green chillies, ginger and curry leaves (if using). Add a little water for easy blending. I usually add upto half a cup of the soaking liquid because I prefer thinner dosas.
  • Add salt and asafoetida powder to the batter and mix well.
  • ***The batter may be stored in this form in the refrigerator for upto a week.
  • Before making dosas, garnish the batter with lots of chopped cilantro leaves.
  • Some coconut and chopped onions may be added too. (I usually omit both).
  • Make dosas or pancakes using very little oil on a non-stick pan.
  • Enjoy as is or with some green chutney or pickle!
  • I sometimes spread some chutney on the dosas, roll them up and chop them, stick a tooth-pick into each piece and serve as fun appetizers!
