Urid - Moong Dal Harka Kadubu & Dosa

Kadabu is one of idli family. We do prepare different varieties of kadubu. This Kadubu is done with Moong dal, urid dal and harka/Araka. Araka or Harka is one of the siridhanya's grain. It is just like foxtail millet or little millet.

Use of Siri Dhanya /Millets is definitely benefits our health. It is free of gluten, and full of fiber. It is digested easily but slowly. It is good for diabetic, high blood pressure or any other related problems.
Let us see the recipe Now>
I have soaked urid dal and moong dal, Harka/Kodo Millet separately for 3 to 4 hours. Then grinding with green chilly, pepper pods, an inch of ginger and little coconut.
Harka is to like rava consistency means it should not be powdered completely. The dals should be into fine paste.
I have cooked this batter with out fermenting and I used a teaspoon of Eno. Eno helps to digest the food easily and turns the food soft and fluffy.
I kept some remaining batter to ferment and prepared dosa with that batter, which has turned so yummy and crispy.
Let us see the recipe now :

Things Needed :

Urid dal : 1 Cup
Moong dal : 1 Cup
Harka/Araka /Kodo Millet : 1/3 Cup
Coconut : 1 Cup /3 to 4 Tablespoons
Green chilly : 2
Ingh/Asafoetida : A little
Curry Leaves : 1 Handful
Coriander leaves : 2 Tablespoons
Ginger : An inch
Jeera /Cumin Seeds : 1 Teaspoon
Pepper Pods : 1/2 Teaspoon
Salt : As required
Eno Salt : 1 Teaspoon

Method :

1. Wash and soak urid dal, moong dal and Harka/Kodo Millet separately for 2 to 3 houts.

2. Wash and cut coriander leaves, curry leaves and green chilly. Remove the outer layer of ginger and wash it again. Cut into small pieces.

3. Grate coconut and keep it aside.
4. Grind Urid dal, moong dal, cut ginger, coriander leaves, curry leaves,  1/2 cup of coconut, green chilly, jeera and pepper with required water. Grind it nicely.
5. Grind Harka /kodo millet into rava consistency. Mix all the batter with required salt.

6. Apply little ghee/oil to a bowl and keep it ready.

7. Keep a idli cooker /pressure cooker on the fire, put some water and keep a bowl upside down.
8. Add a teaspoon of Eno Salt and mix the batter nicely. Spread some coconut on the top.
