Knock Knock………anybody remembers me or have you all forgotten my small blog, i know it is more than 2 months and neither have i posted any recipe nor visited any blogs. Things were a bit tiresome at home front and lost all my interest in cooking with all the halla-gulla going around here. But with the start of 2012 hope to do much better,btw did u know the prediction for 2012…The world may end on dec 2012, do u believe it , i for one dont believe it at all, i have many more years to look forward to.
At the end of 2011 i had planned that my 1st post will be on 1st Jan, but see it is already 10 days into Jan and here i come late…..Thanx to blog hopping, had to drop the old baggage and start blogging again. Sorry to my hoppers of Nov and Dec as i couldn’t visit your space and cook something, but will surely cover up by posting a recipe from your blog. Back to the recipe for today, for this months hopping i am paired with kamalika who blogs at JanakiPatti. I decided on preparing Pesaratu, I love dosa’s and so different variations are always welcome for a try out.
Moong Dal Dosa
Recipe Source from Here
Makes 6 Dosa’s
Green Split Moong Dal 1 cup
Salt to taste
Oil to cook
Finely chopped 2 Onions – Optional
Wash Moong dal and rice nicely and soak them in enough water overnight or for 4 hrs.
Drain all the water and grind them along with g.chillies and ginger to a thick batter.
Keep a eye on how much water you use as you dont want the batter to be very thin but it should resemble a regular dosa batter.
Mix coriander leaves and salt and mix nicely.
Heat a dosa pan and when hot, pour a laddleful of the batter in the center and spread clockwise to as thin dosa as possible.
At this stage you can spread the finely chopped onion or proceed to add little oil at the corners.
Cover with a lid and let cook on a medium flame for some time.
When you see the edges of the dosas getting a brown color, flip over and cook the onion side as well.
Serve Straight off the pan with chutney of your choice.
Hope You all liked the recipe and do check the other Blog hoppers as well.
Adding rice gives a crispier dosa, hence i recommend it.
You can substitute the dals or can even add a mix of dals.
Ciao till next time!!!!
