Moong dal and chana dal dose, lentil dosai recipe

Moong dal and chana dal dosa recipe - It is a very healthy, delicious, protein packed very thin pancake prepared with the batter of husked split green grams (moong dal) and split bengal grams (chana dal). Dosa, dosai or dose is one of the most popular breakfast dish of South India. Using rice and split black grams or urad dal is common in dosa. But this dosa is unique wherein rice and urad dal is not used. Making the batter for this dosa is very easy. Once you prepare the batter, spread it on hot pan, cook till golden colour  and the dosa is ready.

If you are bored with your regular pulao, even you can prepare it for your dinner. Once you prepare the batter, your half work is done. You can store it in the refrigerator for two or three days and making a few dosas with this batter is very convenient for you.

When you return from your college or office, you can make this simple dosa within few minutes. So don't think too much and remember to buy a kilogram of moong dal and half a kg. of chana dal  when you shop grocery items next time. Buy some ginger and green chillies when you buy the other vegetables.  Adjust the remaining ingredients as per your choice and try it.

Bachelors  can make it and for them even skipping the addition of ginger and green chillies also doesn't make much of a difference in taste. This dosa goes very well with chutneys like coconut chutney, ginger garlic chutneycapsicum chutney, shenga chutney powderpeanut cilantro chutney etc. If you find the preparation of chutney is difficult and boring, even you can eat this dosa with tomato ketchup.
