Mixed Dal Dosa ~ Mixed Lentil Dosa

Mixed dal dosa is a high protein dish made with 5 different types of dal / lentils. No rice is added so 

 this dosa  is  a completely  healthy,  vegan and Gluten free. You can have these dosa all day long for

 breakfast, lunch and dinner. You can make the dosa right away after you grind the batter. But our

 family loved it more when  it is fermented for few hours. No one would believe you have made super

 crispy dosas without any rice. So lets get started with the list of ingredients and procedure.....

This recipe goes to Week 2 Day 1 of Blogging Marathon 121 under the theme " Dazzling Dals".


Udad dal 1/2 cup

Red Masoor dal 1/2 cup

Chana dal 1/2 cup

Yellow mung dal 1/2 cup

Green mung dal 1/2 cup

Fenugreek seeds 

Cumin seeds 2 tsps

Green chili 3

Ginger 1 inch 


Wash and soak all the dals over night or for at least 6 hours.

Grind the soaked dals along with ginger, green chili and cumin seeds till nice and smooth.

Ferment the batter over night or for 6-8 hours.

Add salt to taste and  water to make the batter little thin just as regular dosa batter.

Heat non stick tawa or iron tawa, add ladle full of batter in the center and spread it in a circular

motion as thin as your can.

Add 1/2 spoon oil over the edges.

Roast it nicely till you see the edges separating.

Flip the dosa and cook on other side.

Remove and serve hot with any chutney and Sambar.

I end up making thicker ones when making dal dosas. Your version dosa looks fabulous besides being protein packed ones.
