Few Things to note while making Moong Dal Dosa :

  • Soaking the moong dal dosa in warm water for 30 mins not only helps in speeding the soaking process but also makes dosa crispy.
  • Don’t soak the dosa for more than 2 hours .  Soaking for more time makes the dosa very soft.
  • Adding rice flour makes the dosa more crisper . So don’t skip . In case you don’t have rice flour , add 1-2 tsp of corn flour .
  • Addition of ginger , jeera and green chilli adds flavour . For extra flavour you can add hing / coriander leaves / curry leaves / Onion .
  • If you want you can top the dosa with finely chopped onion / grated paneer / chutney pudi / stuff with aloo palya and make masala dosa.
  • Don’t make the batter too thick or thin . Too thick batter makes the dosa hard , thin batter makes dosa sticky.
