Breakfast, Dosa




Whole moong dal 3/4 cup

Raw rice 1/4 cup (optional)

3 tbsp of finely chopped onion

3 green chillies finely chopped

Ginger 1″ piece

1 tsp jeera

Salt to taste


  1. Wash both rice and whole moong and soak in water overnight.
  2. Drain the soaked water in the morning grind whole moong, rice and ginger to a smooth consistency adding sufficient water to suit the usual dosa batter. Add salt while grinding so that it will mix well.
  3. I did not grind the onion and chillies because i know my kid will eat, so i added it separately along with some cilantro.
  4.  Heat the pan and add oil. Spread the batter and cook it thoroughly on one side and flip it otherwise it will break while flipping.
  5. We enjoyed ours with peanut chutney or you can have it as it is without any chutney because flavours are strong.


  • Do not flip it soon otherwise it will break.
  • I added rice for crispiness. If you want to omit rice then it’s fine to omit.
