- Wash and clean green chllies, coriander leaves and keep them in a bowl. Add crushed fresh coconut,cleaned garlic cloves, roughly chopped onions to it.
- Drain water from soaked grains, pour it into a big size mixer jar. Add all the above stuff and salt to it. Make a fine paste by adding 1 cup of water to it. If required, you can add little more water while grinding. The consistency of the batter should be little bit thicker than that of dosa. Now your pancake batter is ready to prepare pancakes (dosas).
- Place a non-stick tawa (pan) on medium flame. Pour one spoon of batter on heated pan, spread the batter evenly by moving the spoon in a circular manner. Close the pan with lid for 1-2 minutes, open the lid and sprinkle a very little quantity of oil over it and cook it for another 2 minutes. Turn the dosa upside down with the help of dosa turner. Cook it further for 2 minutes.
- If you don’t want to use oil, you can make dasas without oil, they also taste very good.
- Repeat the same procedure for the remaining batter. Your healthy and delicious mixed dall dosa is ready to serve. You can serve it with any chutney or ketchup.
