How To Make High-Protein Dal Dosa

The simple recipe of this dosa requires green gram, black gram dal, rice, tamarind seeds, cowpea, peas, carrot, cumin, onion, and coriander leaves (for garnishing). You simply need to roast and soak the tamarind seeds along with dals and rice separately for a couple of hours. You can do this well in advance. Grind them all to a paste, and keep aside for 3-4 hours. Then simply cook the mixture in a non-stick pan like a regular dosa.  

Cook along with tamarind seeds, cumin seeds, onion, and carrot. Top it up with coriander leaves and serve with chutney of your choice. Isn’t it simple and wholesome? The tamarind seeds lend a yummy flavour to the dish too. Try this recipe and share your experience with us. If you are up to experiment with some unique dosas, we’ve got some ideas too.
