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

mixed dal dosa

from the time i made this recipe for the first time, i have made it regularly and very often. this mixed dal dosa 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 dosa and another no grind easy 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 idli 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.

  1. Instead of rice flour and rava what can be added.or can we prepare only with the dals

    • you can also make just with the dals. skip rice flour and rava. you can also add some ground oats if you want.

  2. What does ‘Serves: 2 – 3’ mean? Is that dosa count or in general serves 2 to 3 people? I have not tried anything like this before and hence have no idea how much batter this would be.

    • it means serves 2 to 3 people and not dosa count. in case if there is any batter remaining, then you can refrigerate it and use later.

      • Thank you for the prompt response and this awesome recipe. I couldn’t wait and tried it last night and it was yummylicious 🙂 However it hardly made 6 dosas for the above mentioned quantity, would double it tonight!

        • surely reena double the quantity for more dosas 🙂 and you are welcome. thanks for positive feedback.

  3. Hello. I have a soaked and fermented batter of 1cup chana dal, moong dal and urad dal. Can I add only rava to it and use it for dosas?

    • you can add rava. but add 1 to 2 tablespoons.

  4. Can we make batter at night . Keep it in the fridge and use it next day morning ??

    • yes chandana. you can do this way. but before making dosa, bring the batter to room temperature.
