Mix bele dose - Dal dosa recipe - Mix lentils dosa

dal dosa with chutney in serving plate - dal dosa recipe
Bele dose is a guilt free breakfast dish prepared with bengal gram (chana dal ), husked split green gram (moong dal), husked split black gram (urad dal ) and semolina (rava). Yogurt is added just to give a sour taste to the dosa. Urad dal and rice dosa is  a common breakfast dish in South India. But, this mixed lentils dosa is an interesting alternative to usual urad dal and  rice dosa. This is a healthy breakfast dish which provides both proteins and energy. Consuming  2 -3 dosas for breakfast,  provide sufficient energy balance till lunch.

I have used rava ( semolina ) in this dosa for my convenience. You can add soaked and ground rice paste instead of rava. However, the taste will remain same. If you choose to make it with rice paste, make sure to soak the rice for thirty minutes before grinding.

Some kids eat too little dal dishes or proteins rich food. For them this dosa is an ideal dish, since it is a dish in combination with various lentils and lentils are rich sources of proteins. Dosa and chutney are team players. This dosa goes great with capsicum chutney. You can serve it with choice of your chutney. Even chutney powder goes well with it.  If your kids refuse to eat dosa with chutney, you can serve it with fruit jam and honey.
