After the blogging marathon, I took a few days off from blogging and today I am back with Horsegram crepes.Are you thinking that this recipe is being repeated? Yes, I have posted Kollu dosai earlier.It was more like the instant variety.Today's recipe is the one which needs time to soak, grind and ferment. I saw this in Red Chillies blog and knew I had to make this. Those of you who are regulars to my blog will know how much I like this legume.
Horsegram - 1/2 cup
Rice - 1 cup
Urad dal-1/2 cup
Channa dal - 2 tablespoons
Salt to taste
- Soak horsegram, urad dal, rice and channa dal over night.
- The next morning wash with fresh water and grind to a smooth paste using a little water.Do not add too much water as the batter will become watery.
- Remove the batter from the grinder / mixie into a vessel and mix salt and allow to ferment for 7-8 hours or till the batter doubles in volume.
- Once it is fermented, mix once again and prepare dosas on a heated griddle.
Serve with a side dish of your choice.
Store the remaining batter in the refrigerator and use within a couple of days.
