Mixed Dal Dosa Recipe - I have never made this recipe. I have always made dosa the regular way… of rice and urad dal batter, or moong dal dosas.

I liked the way the mixed dal dosas turned out. I did not make a plain Mixed Dal Dosa. I made it in mumbai style….. the way the the typically mumbai mysore masala dosa is made. The dosa is stuffed with potato sabzi and grated/chopped veggies. It is unique to Mumbai and you won’t get it anywhere else. It tasted awesome……… better than serving it plain.

Serving it in this manner……… makes it a complete food as with the proteins from the pulses, there is also vitamins and minerals from the vegetables, plus carbohydrates from the potato masala filling. Serve it with coconut chutney or sambhar or even any dry chutney. I served it with mint-coriander chutney. This is an easy dosa recipe as it does not require fermentation. You can make the dosas right away after making the batter. So here is the wholesome protein packed Mixed Dal Dosa Recipe.

Ingredients for Mixed Dal Dosas:

3 tbsp each of arhar, chana, masoor and moong dals
1 green chilli
1/2 inch piece of ginger
1/4 tsp asafoetida
3 tbsp semolina-sooji (optional) 3
tbsp rice flour (optional)
oil or ghee or butter
salt

Method to make the Mixed Dal Dosa Recipe:

  • Soak all the dals overnight in water.
  • Discard this water, the next day.

  • Wash the dals in clean water and grind the dals with green chili, ginger and asafoetida in a grinder till smooth. Add around 1/4 cup of water while grinding the dals.
  • Adding rice flour and suji (semolina) is optional. You could add them at this stage. I have made mixed dal dosas with and without semolina and rice flour. Both taste good. However, rice flour gives a consistency to the batter and semolina makes it crispier. Personally, I prefer to use both rice flour and semolina.
  • Season the batter with salt.

  • On a tava or thick bottomed griddle, take a ladle of the batter.
  • Pour the batter on the tava and spread the batter in a round circular portion with the ladle.
  • Cook on a low to medium flame. Apply 1-2 tsp of oil/butter/ghee on the edges and top of the dosa.
  • When the base is cooked and crisp…..you can check this by lifting the dosa slightly with the spatula. Turn over the dosa when the base is cooked.
  • Cook the other side of dosa.
  • Serve the mixed dal dosa with aloo sabzi, sambhar and coconut chutney.

    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!!!.

  3. 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.
