Green Gram Moong Dal Dosa Recipe

Dosas are fantastic! It is easy to make, can be stored easily. However dosa need at least some preparation a day of soaking. So when I discovered these green gram dosas I was so happy and they are one dish recipes meaning you can skip the accompaniment like chutney if you wish. So here is this simple yet so tasty dosa recipe you can make on the go. 

Serves: A breakfast for 4 people.


  • Green gram whole 500 gms., 
  • Green chilly 2 or as you like, 
  • coriander half a bowl, 
  • garlic 3 cloves, 
  • spoonful of cumin seeds, 
  • salt to taste 
  • oil half a cup

Soak the whole green grams for 5-6 hours. Soak them in enough water so they can double up in size. 

Blend them in a smooth paste in a blender. Before blending add the coriander, green chillies, cumin seeds, chopped garlic salt and some water. The consistency you want is like the cake batter a little runny won’t be a problem. Pour 2 tsps of oil in the batter. 

Pour this batter on a hot pan with a bit of oil brushed on it and spread them for a paper thin dosas. Or even bread like thickness tastes great too. Blend a chutney if you want or sauce but you can just eat them rolled up. 

Tip: If the batter is a little runny you can add a bit of semolina and whisk the dough.
