This is not an original recipe but something a friend had suggested I try out. It is a healthy breakfast / snack option and all my boys (including the big boy) love it.
1 cup mixed daals – i use tur, masoor and moon
1 cup oats (quaker or any other instant breakfast oats)
ginger (as per your taste)
green chilly (if you like it spicy)
salt to taste
A little yoghurt / dahi (optional..gives a slightly tangy taste which we like)
Soak the daals in water for about an hour
Soak the oats in a little water for 15 minutes
Grind the daal mixture and then add the soaked oats and remaining ingredients and put it in the mixer to for a coarse paste. You can add water based on how thin you like the batter and how thin or thick you would like your dosas.
Heat some oil on a flat pan or non-stick tawa, put a dollop of batter on and spread it into a large circle. Cook it like you would a regular dosa.
You can eat it plain or with a chutney. For the kiddos I make a simple dip using dahi (yoghurt), salt, a bit of sugar, some red chilli powder and ground peanuts. It is easy to whip up and quite delicious. You can also make it minus the red chilly powder.
