Diwali is just around the corner, and the,"To Do" list is stressing me out. With so much to do and so little accomplished,I hardly have the time or the inclination to cook full fledged meals.I have been brain storming for some fun ,yummy and easy eats. So I remembered my friend Hema from Haldia,she is a Marwari and used to very often for" Nashta"/snack make these dosas. I thought I will have ," Nashta/snack" for lunch today, lunch lately has been salad for me,you guessed it- Trying to shed the extra pounds. But Friday is my husband's," work from home day " and therefore an excuse for me to indulge myself *winks*. We just enjoyed our moong daal dosas with some fish fingers.
Makes 4 Dosas
moong daal/split Green Gram: 1 cup
salt: 1/2 tsp
Oil: 2 tbsp
medium onion & tomato chopped very fine OR salsa 2 tbsp OR green mint coriander chutney
soak the moong daal for 2-3 hours. Grind it in a food processor/mixer,with some water. the consistency has to be pouring,but not thin. A good example would be pancake batter.
Add salt and 1 tbsp oil & mix well.
Take a griddle /non-stick pan and brush it with oil.
Take a ladle of batter and spread in on the griddle,I like it round-But it is totally your choice.
I had chopped onions and tomatos very fine and when the dosa was done , I spread some onions and tomatos and then folded it . You can also use salsa,or green chutney,if you do not prefer raw onions and tomatos. I had prepared fish fingers to eat with dosas.So this was fine for me.
Note: I cook it on high flame for first couple minutes and then reduce the flame and keep it on the griddle for a minute more. You don't have to flip the dosas and cook it on the other side. Use a flat karchi /spatula to turn the dosa.
