I found this recipe in one of the many scraps of papers in which I had scribbled some recipes. This one looks like at least 10 years old :). I wonder why I never attempted this version of Dosa until now. 

I like that this is diabetic friendly and protein filled Dosa.
For Day 6 of BM #16, here is the simple recipe for a delightful Dosa.

Chana Dal Dosa

Ingredients - 

Urad Dal 1/2 cup
Chana Dal 1/2 cup
Fenugreek seeds/ Methi seeds 1/2 tsp
Salt as needed

Method Of Preparation -

Wash and soak Urad Dal and Chana Dal along with methi seeds for 3-4 hours.

Drain the water and grind the dals into a super fine fluffy batter adding as little water as needed.

Mix in salt and set aside for fermentation preferably overnight.

Add water to adjust the batter consistency. The batter should be pouring consistency.

On a hot tawa/griddle, drop a ladleful and spread the batter around in a circular shape quickly into a thin layer. Spray a little bit of oil if needed. (I don't use any oil as I use a non-stick pan)

After the dosa browns enough on one side, flip it onto the other side and let it cook for another 30 seconds or so and take the dosa off the pan.

Continue until required number of dosas are done. The left over batter can be refrigerated for further use.
