All dal dosa

Guest author: Gauri Karmali

I learnt this dosa from my mom she makes it really good. I have tried it and it comes out very good. Everyone should try this healthy recipe.


1 cup urad dal
1/2 cup moong dal
2 tbsps toor dal
1/4 cup channa dal
2 cups of raw rice
1/4 tsp cumin seeds
2 cut green chillies

Soak all the dals together and rice separately for atleast 8-12 hours. Then grind the dals and rice separately to a smooth paste. Mix the rice and dal pastes and let the paste ferment overnight. Heat a tbsp of oil in a pan, add cumin seeds, ginger and green chillies. Fry these ingredients and add it to the fermented mixture. Add salt and mix the batter well. Heat a tava or a heavy griddle, spread some oil. Take a ladle full of the dosa batter and pour onto it. Spread it in a circular motion to make it as thin as possible. Pour a little oil around the dosa and on it. Once it is cooked crisp on one side, flip it over for few seconds and serve hot with sambar and coconut chutney.
