Hesarumolake Dose/ Moongbean Sprout Dosa

A protein rich treat to vegetarian's. Not sure if this is called pesarattu in Andhra as I have never tasted pesarattu. However, this version of moongbean sprout dosa tasted delicious. Try it to know it :) .It can be classified under instant dosa category if you buy sprouted moong bean from supermarket ;)
Though I am a big fan of sprouts I could have not eaten sprouts equivalent to 2 dosas........

My Variation : Added Semolina to dosa batter to make crispy dosas

Ingredients:

Hesarumolake kaalu /Moongdal Sprouts : 2 cups
Ginger+garlic+greenchilli paste : 1/2 tsp
RedChillies :3
Corainder leaves : 10 lines

1.Grind all the ingredients above to make a smooth paste without using water or using very little water.

Onions : 1 medium (finely chopped)
Semolina: 3-4 tbsp
Jeerige/Cumin : 1/2 tsp
Salt

2. Add the above ingredients to ground paste and mix well. Add little water and adjust the consistency of the batter to normal dosa batter consistency.
3.Heat tava and smear oil. Ladle a spoonfull of batter over the tava and spread the batter with the back of the spoon. Close the lid and let it cook for 30 sec-1 min. Turn over and roast.
4. Enjoy protein filled dosas with your favorite chutney. We devoured it with coconut chutney.

Caution : To avoid any kind of disappointments please try with small quantity of sprouts. We liked it :)


Since Dosa can be eaten any time of the day this healthy dosa goes to WYF-breakfast event by EC and Cooking for Kids-Evening Snack hosted by Divya of Dil Se. Happy hosting both of you.

Hi Lakshmi,
This is very yummy. this batter does not keep well in fridge in my house. tastes good only if made immediately.
Have u tried storing it in fridge or do you also grind just enough for one batch?

SPICE OF LIFE said...

i tried making this once , but the sprouts gave a slightly bitter taste ..wonder whether u got the same ? I will try using rava next time around :)

LG said...

If sprouts are 2-3 days old then you will get bitter taste when you make dosa. Freshly sprouted beans which means the sprouts are really small with the beans..these go well for making dosa.

Parita said...

Delicious healthy Dosa..i too add semolina to make it crispy :)

Dibs said...

We make this often as well. Hey good idea on buying ready made sprouts and adding sooji! Your thilli dosa has become a regular instant for lazy me....I think this can be added to that list as well :-))
