Toor Dal + Rice Dosa

Toor Dal and Raw rice dosa is good for breakfast, or for evening snack. You can prepare it immediately or by fermenting. I tried with fermenting and even as soon as I ground the dough. Fermenting turns out crispy and soft too.
Lets see some benefits of having Urid dal dal and Toor dal in our diet.
Urad or urid dal is good for women since it contain iron, folic acid, calcium, magnesium. It has protein, fat and carbohydrates. This dal is rich in proteins and vitamins B. Urad dal is one of the energy booster. It contain anti aging and anti inflammatory properties.
Toor dal is also known as pigeon pea and one of the healthy lentil. It contain folic acid which is very essential for women during her pregnancy. It loaded with proteins, carbohydrates and fiber.
You can prepare beautiful thin and crispy dosas by adding toor dal to your dosa ingredients.

Things Needed:

Raw Rice : 2 Cups
Urad Dal : 1/2 Cup
Toor Dal :1/3 Cup
Methi /Fenugrik seeds : 1 Table spoon
Salt : to taste
Oil/Ghee  : 1/4 Cup

Method : 

1. Wash and soak raw rice (dosa rice), urid dal, toor dal, methi seeds in a big bowl. (for about 4 to 5 hours).
2. Grind them nicely by using water. (little by little). (Divide the soaked ingredients into two parts and then grind It churns well).
3. Remove from mixi jar/ grinder, add salt and let it ferment over night. (or 5 to 6 hours).
4. Keep a pan on the fire and heat. Sprinkle little oil.
5. Mix dough nicely and take a laddle of dough and spread it nicely in circle shape.

6. Add 1/2 tea spoon of oil on the top and cover it. Let it cook for a minute.
7. Remove the cover and turn dosa other side and cook for 10 seconds.(optional)
 8. Take out from the pan and serve hot dosa with little ghee on the top and a side dish you prepared.

Note : 

Adding more urid dal is optional. Adding toor dal makes dosa crispy. No need to add any cooking soda to the dough. Do not add any maida either. Use little water to grind. Then you can add water, if dough turns too thick. But it should not be watery. Adding ghee instead of oil is optional. You can also prepare fluffy dosas with the same dough.. (not so thin and crispy).
Time : Soaking ingredients : 4 to 5 hours, Fermenting : overnight or 5 to 6 hours.
Preparing dosa : 10 minutes
Serves : 5 to  6.
