The recipe does use some fresh coconut, but the amount of chana dal is more than coconut. In the absence of fresh coconut, you can easily add desiccated coconut. Tempering in this recipe is also optional and you can just skip it. the recipe is a quick one and gets done within 15 minutes, if you have grated coconut handy.

  6. learned so much from your site..such a detailed way to teach things..thnx a lot..

    • welcome

  7. Hi dassana, today I prepared poha dosa /atkula ,followed your recipes. Batter got ferment ,the dosa was soft, but there was no pores as u shown in pics. Where I went wrong? The batter was thick, is that the problem?

    • i think probably the baking soda was not active, meaning near its expiry or expired. even if the batter is thick, pores should be there.

  8. Very nice we used to prepare this very often. U can add a small piece of ginger too.

    • thanks chithra for your suggestion.
