Green Gram Dosa - Hesaru Kalu Dosa

Green Gram Dosa is a small variation of a popular recipe: Pesarattu dosa. Typically the batter for this dosa is made just from moong dal and other spices, but I have added a little rice to make it more crispy and tasty.

  • 2 cups Green Gram/ Moong dal
  • ½ cup Long grain rice or idli rice
  • 1 inch ginger
  • 2 -3 green chilies
  • Salt


  • Soak raw moong dal and rice in water for 6- 8 hours, in a large bowl.
  • Blend the moong dal, rice with chopped ginger and green chili with sufficient water, and bring it to a fine consistency. Too much water will dilute the taste.
  • Add salt to taste.
  • Place a cast-iron skillet over medium heat. When it’s hot, pour a teaspoon of oil and let it heat up a little before spreading it thinly over the skillet.
  • Spread the batter and cover the lid for a few seconds.
  • When the dosa turns crispy and cooked on the top, remove from the Tawa and fold.
  • Green Gram Dosa is ready! Enjoy with coconut chutney and sambar.
