Payaru Dosa – Green Gram Dosa Recipe

Payaru Dosa – Green Gram Dosa is a healthy, non-fermented Indian breakfast/dinner – Dosa variety, in which the batter is prepared by grinding green gram dhal with spices and seasoned with sautéed onions & cilantro. The batter is then spread evenly over the hot surface of a flat circular pan (Tawa) to get crispier dosas. This serves as a good alternative, if you get bored of our usual dosai & adai varieties.

When I was chit-chatting with my cousin, she told me about this ‘Pachai Payaru adai dosa‘. I was so curious as it doesn’t involve any fermentation process. First, I was skeptical about the batter as it includes mainly green gram. But, the fresh aroma of batter while grinding the green gram assured that I was just going to love it!!! It sure did!! Unlike other dosa varieties, the green gram dosa remains soft & crispier for long time. Good thing is that it doesn’t involve any fermentation process, though it does involve soaking part.

By making this pachai payaru adai dosa for breakfast/dinner, you can stay assured that your meal is packed with protein & fiber. As a source of iron, green gram also helps you to meet your daily iron needs.
