Will I ever get tired of eating idlis and dosas, never, and I am always ready to try a new one. Today's dish is yet another dosa, Green Peas Dosa or Pattani Dosa and what better time to make them, than now, when fresh green peas are still in season. I have already posted Moong Dal Dosa, Pesarattu and this Peas Dosa is a slight variation of the pesarattu. This is a very healthy dosa, rich in protein and also, we can make them immediately after making the batter as there is no need for fermentation. If fresh green peas are not available, we can make them with frozen peas too, so make and serve it with some spicy chutney..
Need To Have
- Moong Dal/Husked Split Green Gram Dal - 1 cup
- Fresh Green Peas - 1 cup
- Green Chillies - 5
- Ginger - 1" piece
- Onion - 1 medium, roughly chopped
- Cumin Seeds - 1 teaspoon
- Chopped Coriander - 2 tablespoons
- Salt - 1 teaspoon
Original recipe here
Wash and soak the moong dal for at least and hour. Boil the green peas in some water, till it's cooked ( about 7 minutes ), remove and keep.
Now drain the moong dal, peas, and grind them along with the green chillies, ginger and onion into a smooth paste. To the ground batter, add the cumin seeds. salt and coriander leaves and mix it well. The batter should be of dropping consistency ( it'll not be watery, it fall in lumps from the ladle ).
Now heat a tawa/pan, grease it, remove it from heat, add a ladle of batter and spread it immediately as thin as possible. Drizzle some oil and cook till it turns golden brown, then flip and cook the other side till brown spots appear on that side. Remove and serve it hot with a spicy chutney. Wipe the pan with a tissue and continue making the rest of the dosas.
If you want we can add some grated coconut to the ground batter.
While grinding the batter, if needed add some water.
