mix dal dosa recipe

mixed dal dosa recipe with step by step pics – easy and no ferment dosa made with mix lentils or dals.

from the time i made this recipe for the first time, i have made it regularly and very often. the recipe is very easy and does not require you to ferment the batter. but you do need to soak the lentils overnight. overnight soaked lentils ground well and give a better taste. however, if you are short of time, you can soak the lentils in hot water for an hour or two.

apart from this easy dosa, i also make this easy moong dal dosas and another no grind dosa made from urad dal flour and rice flour.

these dosas taste crisp when they are hot. but after cooling, they become soft. you can pair the dosa with the potato masala or even dosa podi or coconut chutney. with this batter, i also make mumbai mysore masala dosa. in this mumbai style mysore masala dosa recipe, the mixed dal dosa is stuffed with potato masala and grated/chopped veggies.

mixed dal dosa is a protein packed dosa, with good amount of proteins coming from the lentils. serve the dosa plain with coconut chutney or sambar.

    Hi

    Love the idea of a protein rich dosa
    I added only 1 tbsp of rice flour, but end result – dosa has an uncooked ” kacha pan” flavor of the riceflour.

    Kindly guide
    Thanx

    Hi Dassana,

    Thank you for this healthy dosa recipe, I want to try it soon.

    Can I skip Arhar dal and make it with the rest of the dals and rice flour and sooji?
    And how important is adding Asafoetida?

    Thank you

      • Keerthi says

        Great! Il definitely try it.

        Could you please advise as to how much yogurt to use and when in the process should I add it? Keeping in mind the above measurements.

        Sorry to bother you with my questions, my first time at making dosa batter. Though I tried your instant rava dosa, it was super. Thanks

        • says

          hi keerthi, you can add just about 1 or 2 tbsp of the yogurt once the batter is ready. just mix it. in case the batter becomes thick, then just add some rice flour.

    Great recipe. I made that many times. I added semolina and rice flour at once. But, I prefer just dals itself. Thank you!!!.

  4. Muralidhara says

    I have made several times of this mixed dosa. Always, it has come out well. Added rice flour and sooji. Did not find much difference. I just use those 4 dals. Thank you for this healthy recipe.

      thanks anu for sharing the adai recipe. i have noted your recipe down and plan to make it. i know about adai. when i went to coimbatore, i got myself a packet of organic readymade adai mix from isha yoga center. but i think the freshly ground batter must be tasting better than the readymade mix. thanks once again.

      this batter will stay only for 1-2 days in the refrigerator. you can add basmati rice. soak the rice with the rest of the lentils. if you want you can even skip adding rice and just made the dosa with lentils.
