Dhirad or Mixed Lentils Dosa

This is a Maharashtrian snack. Its called "Dhirad" which is very similar to Dosa however its very healthy and super instant. The dry flour has a long shelf life. Once you have a dry flour ready this recipe needs 10 minutes to be on the serving plate.

Here is what we need -

Flour Ingredients :
  • 1 cup rice
  • 1/2 cup chana daal
  • 1/4 cup urad daal
  • 1/4 cup toor daal
  • 1/4 moong daal

  • 1/2 small onion
  • 1/2 small tomato
  • cilantro for flavor
  • salt per taste
  • 1/2 spoon chili powder
  • 1 spoon of oil

Whats Next -

First we will see how to make the flour which could be stored in the refrigerator.

Dry roast rice and all the daals. Grind all the ingredients to a coarse powder. Store it in an air tight container.
Whenever you want to make this dosa style snack; just take out a cup of flour in a bowl.This will make 3 to 4 pieces. Add finely chopped onion, tomato, cilantro. Add 1/2 cup or as needed water. Make sure its not too watery. Add salt, chili powder to the batter and give it a good mix.

Heat the dosa griddle on Medium-high heat. Pour the batter and move the spoon in the circular motion as you make dosa or a pan cake.

Drop a spoon of oil around it. Let it cook for 2 minutes and flip it to the other side. In a minute it should be ready.

Serve it with coconut chutney, ketch-up or yogurt.

Supa delicious ......
