This recipe combines the best of south Indian snacks like pesarattu and dosa with the goodness of whole moong, resulting in a wholesome and filling snack option. The use of whole moong offers culinary and nutritious benefits. While its rich fibre content helps lower cholesterol levels, it also gives the dosa a mild and enjoyable crunch. The stuffing of onions, coriander and green chillies also adds to the appeal of the Whole Moong Dosa, both in terms of flavour and texture.

salt to taste
2 1/4 tsp oil for greasing and cooking

To Be Mixed Together To Make The Stuffing
1/2 cup finely chopped onions
1/2 cup chopped coriander (dhania)

For Serving

  1. Combine the moong, rice and the urad dal in a deep bowl and soak in enough water for 4 hours.
  2. Drain well and blend in a mixer to a smooth paste using 1½ cups of water as required till the batter has the consistency of dosa batter.

  4. Add the salt and mix well.
  5. Divide the stuffing into 8 equal portions and keep aside.
  6. Heat a non-stick tava (griddle) and grease it using ¼ tsp of oil. Sprinkle a little water on it (it should sizzle immediately) and wipe off using a piece of cloth.
