Dosa Means - South-Indian dish famous for breakfast or dinner, made with rice and lentils. It looks like Pancakes or very think and crispy.There are numerous varieties of Dosa's available!

This is a yumm and healthy Satvic version of Lentil Dosa! tastes great with Satvic Cabbage-Lima bean Curry. I'm sending this post to Padma's Dosa Corner event.

Ingredients:
Raw Rice - 2 cup
Urad Dal - 1/2 cup
Moong Dal - 1 cup
Toor Dal - 1 cup
Fenugreek Seeds - 1tsp
Channa Dal - 1cup
Red Lentil - 1 cup
Soak all the rice -lentils in water for 4 hours.

Ginger - 2 tbsp
Cumin - 1tsp
Mint leaves - 15
Red chillies - 4
Fennel Seeds - 1tsp
Salt

Grind soaked lentils to fine paste using water, add Red chillies, Ginger, cumin, pepper and salt while grinding.
Ferment it for 8-12 hours.
Add extra water, it its too thick. It has to be in the consistency of pancake batter.
Finally add the chopped mint leaves.
Heat the pan, and pour a spoon full of batter and flip to other side after a minute.
Serve with any chutney or curry

I adapted the cabbage-Lima bean curry from Vidya's kitchen. Thanks Vidya, the recipe turned out great.

Wow you are on a Satvic spree today. Nice dishes. Cabbage and lima bean, good combo. Dosa looks good too. We call this Adai goes well with Avial or sometimes i just love to have this with tsp of jaggery powder and little bit of ghee.
