How to make Moong Dal Idli & Dosa Batter Recipe
To begin making the Moong Dal Idli and Dosa Recipe, first we will soak the dal and rice.
In a bowl soak the moong dal and the methi seeds together. In another bowl, soak the rice. Soak them for at least 6 hours or overnight.
Once soaked, you can grind them. Into a mixer grinder, add the soaked moong dal and methi seeds. Add little water at a time and grind to make a thick flowing batter.
Transfer the ground moong dal into a large bowl. In the same mixer grinder, add the rice and add just little water at a time and make thick batter. Transfer the rice into the same bowl as the moong dal.
Add the salt and stir well to combine. Cover the bowl and ferment for 8 hours/ overnight.
Once fermented, give it a stir gently. You can make idli the first day when batter is fresh with air pockets.
Refrigerate the Moong dal Idli and Dosa batter in an airtight container for 4 to 5 days and use it as required.
