When you craving something south Indian try this Quinoa & Dal Dosa. This recipe is healthier than regular Dosa. This is Vegan, Gluten-free and simply delicious.


1 cup quinoa, uncooked

0.50 cup urad dal

0.50 cup mung dal

0.50 cup toor dal

1 tsp salt


1. Rinse quinoa several times with water until the water runs clear to take off the natural bitter coating called saponin from quinoa. If you are not rinsing the quinoa thoroughly then the dosa will taste bitter.

2. Wash moong dal, toor dal and urad dal together. Soak quinoa, moong dal, urad dal and toor dal together in water for 5 - 6 hours.

3. After 5 hours, drain the water from soaked quinoa and lentils. In a blender or grinder add the quinoa and lentils together, add water little by little and grind it to a smooth batter. Add salt and mix well.

4. In a hot wide non-stick skillet or pan pour a ladle of batter and spread it in a circular motion. Drizzle oil on sides of a dosa and cook until the bottom side of a dosa becomes crispy. Transfer it to a plate and serve. Repeat the same with a rest of the batter.
