Ingredients
 1 cup Green Gram
 ½ inch piece Ginger
 2 tbsp Raw Rice (Optional)
 2 Green Chilli
 1 tsp Asafoetida Powder
 6 Small Onions
 1 Curry Leaves sprig
 Salt to taste
 Oil
 2 Garlic (Optional)
Method
1

This tasty Green Gram Dosa or Cherupayar Dosa (as called in Kerala) is the same as the Pesarattu Dosa (an Andhra Cuisine). It is also a very tasty and healthy dosa that you can have for breakfast or dinner.

2

First of all, soak the green gram and rice together for 4-5 hours. We suggest to add raw rice as it helps to make the dosa more crisp. Alternatively, if you want it to be more healthy you can either use only green gram or can replace raw rice with wheat rava.

3

Now, grind the green gram and raw rice with ginger, garlic and green chillies to make the batter. Garlic is optional, if you don't like it you can leave it off. For the next step, crush the curry leaves and small onions and add to the batter. The ingredients that go in not only add to the taste of this green gram or cherupayar dosa but is beneficial in its own way.

4

Finally, add the asafoetida powder and salt. Then, mix it well until all the ingredients blends in well with the batter. The lovely aroma of asafoetida that emanates from the batter just makes my mouth water. Meanwhile, do not let this batter ferment ever.

Then, heat the tava or non stick dosa skillet and add required amount of oil (quantity is as per preference, less oil for a more healthy option or extra oil if you feel more is tastier). Once the skillet or tava is properly heated, you can pour the batter to the tava.

6

Then, spread the batter using a ladle (like for regular dosa) and let it cook properly. Once the underside is crisp and golden brown in colour, you can flip the dosa to the other side. Finally, when that too cooks through to become crisp, you can serve it with some yummy coconut or tomato chutney of your choice.
