Left over Lentil Instant Dosa

I had a lot of leftover lentils in my pantry. I decided to go wild and use all of it to make this adai-like dosa. I cant call it adai because it has more variety of lentils than the adai recipe would call for :D


Rajma (Kidney Beans), Garbanzo (kadala, chana), Toor dal, Urad dal, Moong dal,Green gram : Together 2 cups (or you can vary the cups according to your needs. It doesn't matter because you grind it together to make the dosa).

Whole Red Chilly : to taste

Water: To soak all the above ingredients together

Salt: to taste

Oil: to make dosa


Soak all the ingredients together in lots of water along with whole red chilly overnight. The next day separate the chilly from the water and grind the lentils and whole red chilly together in batches if necessary (don't over load the blender or mixer), with enough water to grind it like you would grind for dosa batter.
Add salt to the batter and mix it well. Add a little dry mango powder or some tamarind pulp (not too much as it would make it very sour). Mix it well. Start making dosas. Add a little oil when the middle of the dosas turns brown (as shown above). Flip over and let it cook for a few more seconds and take it off the pan. Serve it with hot sambar, or chutney . Store the leftover batter in a airtight container in the refrigerator.
