Moong Beans Sprouts Dosa and Disneyland Paris

Hi you all. I hope you all are doing fine. Well I am totally enjoying summers here and my weekend was super fun because I went to Disneyland Paris. I must say what a place it is. The park is loaded with cute little Disney things as well as big thrill rides. I just can’t get over the Disney sleeping beauty castle. Do scroll down for some Disneyland pictures :-)

Coming on today's post- it is a simple and very healthy dosa (pancake) made from green moong sprouts.  I do not make dosa often and it is not because I don’t like dosa, it is just that I like having it hot, right from pan to my mouth. Anyways, lately I found some spouted moong beans at a grocery store and I picked it up. I wasn't sure what to do with it as having it in form of a salad is a big no no for me. After some thoughts I decided to grind the beans sprouts with some green chillies, ginger and garlic and use it as a dosa batter.

I must mention this was the healthiest and quickest dosa ever (yummier too). We totally enjoyed the crisp pancakes with some spicy tomato chutney. Mr. Husband loved these dosas so much that he was ready to have it in breakfast, lunch and even dinner. A healthy choice is what he always wishes for. *Grin*.

1 cup sprouted green moong
2 cloves garlic/lehsun
1 small peice of ginger/adrak
5 tablespoons semolina/rava/sooji
5 tablespoon gram flour/besan
3-4 green chillies/hari mirch
Salt to taste
1/8 cup oil/tel

In a mixer grind sprouts, ginger, garlic and green chillies coarsely. Use water only to reach at a dosa/pancake batter consistency.
Mix in salt, semolina and gram flour. 
Heat a pan/tava on high-meduim heat and spread one ladle-full of batter into a dosa.
Drizzle some oil and let it cook on one side. Flip over the other side and drizzle some oil again. Cook both the sides well.
Remove from tava and serve with chutney of your choice.

Use stuffing such as paneer, onions or potatoes for more filling dosas.
Do not grind to fine paste. The coarse texture is better and tastier.

Crisp, spicy and healthy
