dosa recipe for breakfast

Moong dal is a nutritious food item to create a protein-packed meal for breakfast, lunch or dinner. While rich in nutrients, it also helps with weight loss. It boosts blood circulation and is an ideal choice for diabetic patients. 

While you can make ample things with moong dal, a dosa is a perfect choice for breakfast, snacks and a complete meal for lunch or dinner. Women looking to lose weight often prefer to eat it in the morning because it is healthy and comes packed with essential nutrients to keep you going through the day.

Method Of Preparation

  • Soak a cup of moong dal for a night or in warm water for half an hour.
  • Add soaked moong dal, roughly chopped ginger, 2 green chillies, salt to taste and a pinch of asafoetida (optional) to a grinder.
  • To maintain the consistency, add water while grinding the ingredients into a smooth paste. If you add water after grinding, the dosa will not be crunchy.
  • Pour the batter into a large bowl.

Masala Mix

  • Boil three medium potatoes.
  • Heat a pan on medium flame.
  • Add two tablespoons of ghee or olive oil.
  • Once the ghee is hot, add cumin seeds, finely chopped green chillies, ginger, half a teaspoon of turmeric powder and a tablespoon of curry leaves.

  • Once the onions are translucent, add boiled and mashed potatoes.
  • Add salt to taste, red chilli powder, dry mango powder (amchur powder), coriander powder, black pepper and garam masala powder.
  • Stir everything and let the spices roast on low flame for about 10 minutes.
  • Add a tablespoon of lemon juice and two tablespoons of fresh coriander leaves and mix everything on medium flame.

Dosa

  • Heat a dosa pan on high flames.
  • Sprinkle some water to ensure that the tawa is hot.
  • Add a scoop of grinded paste to the hot tawa and spread it on the surface of in circular motions.
  • Add ghee on the edges of the tawa and the surface of the dosa.
  • Once you see the paste drying off, add two tablespoons of potato masala mix and spread it across the surface of the dosa.
  • Add freshly grated paneer and sprinkles some fresh coriander leaves. This step is optional.
  • With the help of a thin spatula, start to fold the dosa when you see the sides turn brown.
