Everyone in my house loves dosas and idlis. This creates a nice variation. It can be a one dish meal (which is very important to me as it saves a lot of time) and is healthy enough to not need anything else. My kids like it as they don't see any veggies anywhere. So all in all a good healthy dish which can be made every other day.

Preparation Time: 5-6 hours (includes soaking time)
Cooking Time: 5 min
Serves: 4-5


1 cup rice
1/2 cup Channa dal
1/2 cup Tuar dal
1/2 cup Urad Dal
1/2 cup Moong Dal
1 onion
8-10 curry leaves
4-5 Cilantro sprigs
1 pinch Hing
1/2 " ginger
green chillies to taste
1/2 tsp Fenugreek seeds (optional)
salt to taste
oil for pan frying

  1. Soak all the dals and rice together for about 5-6 hours
  2. Cut all the vegetables coarsly.
  3. Grind all of the above in a grinder with a little water. Do not add too much water. The consistency is a little thicker than dosa.
  4. Spread a ladle of batter on a heated pan. Sprinkle a little oil all around the sides and little on it. Flip it once to cook the other side. Note: I like to spread them a little thick as it comes out soft.
  5. Servce with chutneys or pickle or curd.


  • You can add more veggies like carrots and spinach when grinding to make it healthier.
  • You can add grated coconut to the batter for a little variation.
