The usual paper plain & set dosa with not the usual ingredients!

The title says it all! Without wasting your time, here I go with the recipe.


Ingredients:
Horse gram/hurali kalu: 1/2 cup
Split green gram/hara moong/odeda hesaru kalu: 1/2 cup
Boiled rice/kusubalakki: 3 cups
Fenugreek seeds: 1/2 tsp

Method:

  • Wash all the above ingredients thoroughly in running water for 3-4 times & soak them all together for 5-6 hours.
  • Grind them & prepare a smooth batter out of the soaked dals & rice. Adjust the water such that the batter consistency should be like a thick milkshake.
  • Let the batter ferment overnight (around 6-8 hours, depending on outside temperature).
  • Add salt & mix the fermented batter.
  • Heat a griddle. When the griddle is hot, add a ladle full of batter to the center of the griddle & spread the batter clockwise using the back of the ladle.(like a pancake)
  • Add 1/2 tsp of oil,cover a lid & cook the dosa on a medium heat for 30secs. Remove the lid, turn the dosa & cook the other side for 10 secs. Remove the dosa from griddle. Repeat the same for the remaining dosas.
  • Serve the dosas hot with a chutney/dip/side dish of your choice.
