Sprouted Moongdal Dose

I make dosas atleast once a week for our weekday or weekend brunch. We like to eat dosas with aloo palya and chutney or only with chutneys somethimes or even gojju. The leftover dosa batter I always use that for making onion-chilli uttapam. This week I had some sprouted moongdal, so tried it along with some onion and tomatoes.

These days I have upgraded my dosa recipe from regular rice to brown rice to make it little more nutritious. With sprouts added to it, this will make a complete healthy breakfast.

Recipe for Dose Batter
  • 2 cups - brown rice
  • 3/4 cups-urad dal
  • 1/2 cup - poha/aval/avalakki
  • 2 tbsp - channa dal
  • 1 tbsp - methi seeds

Soak all the ingredients in enough water for 8 hours. Grind to smooth batter, let it ferment for 8 more hours. Then it will be ready to me made into dosas/pancakes or use pancake mix for batter.

For making utthapa/ toppings
  • 1/2 cup - sprouted moongdal
  • 2tbsp- sweet sliced onions
  • 2tbsp- tomatos
  • 1tsp of each- chilli powder, cumin powder and salt.

Mix them all together. Keep aside.
  1. Pour a laddle full of dosa batter on hot griddle/tava. Sprinkle 1 tbsp of mixture in top. It will spread on its own.
  2. Cover for few seconds, let the bottom side get light brown and cook through.
  3. Flip for few seconds and serve.

Can eat it like that, we had ours with yogurt mixed with chutney-powder.

Enjoy !


  1. HI Madhu. Yur recipes are very good, I love them I am going to try the pumpkin and sprign onion reciepes.

Can you provide some guidnace please. I t is much appreciated.

  3. Hi Madhu,

    Just had a query about the brown rice.We usually use white boiled rice or idly rice as it is commonly known.Did you use regular brown rice or brown boiled rice like the kerala variety?.Pls do let me know.

  4. @ Kamakshi,
    hey thank you for your lovely comment. For all the dosa recipes I have used regular white rice/brown rice. Hope you'll be able to try some of the recipes.
