Just the beautiful golden colour of this Moong Dal Dosa is enough to make you drool! And fortunately it is so tasty it won’t let your appetite down.

Made of par-boiled rice and moong dal, soaked, ground and fermented, these dosas have a deliciously homely flavour and enticing crispness, which only fermented batter can bring about.

It tastes different from regular dosas as it uses moong instead of urad and also has an equal proportion of dal and rice. You will love to have this for Breakfast !

I regularly visit this site for recipe they explained in detail and are helpful however earlier the settings would ask for the number of people for want to make the recipe but today it is asking for number of dosas... Request you to have both the options no. Of people or no. Of dosas it will be of great help thank you.
