How to make Moong Dal Dosa Recipe
To begin making Moong dal Dosa, firstly wash and soak the moong dal and rice in water for about 6 hours, preferably overnight. It is better to soak the moong dal and rice separately.
After 6 hours, drain the water from the soaked moong dal and rice. While draining the moong dal, rub it with fingers and discard some of the moong dal skin. If the moong dal skin remains then do not worry. It can be added to prepare the dosa.
Grind the soaked moong dal, soaked rice along with green chilies, chopped onion, cumin seeds and ginger.
If needed, add 1/4 cup of water while grinding the mixture. The dosa batter should be coarse.
Add salt to taste and mix it well.
Heat a non-stick tava and pour a ladle full of batter on the tava. Spread the batter on the tava in a circular way.
After 3-4 minutes when the top of the dosa starts drying, spread 1 teaspoon oil on top and sides of the dosa.
When the lower side of the dosa turns golden brown (this can be checked by slightly lifting the dosa on one side and checking), flip the dosa and let it cook for another 2-3 minutes.
Once done remove Moong dal dosa onto a plate and serve.
