Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 8
  • Dry green moong or soaked moong– ¾ to 1 cup
  • Rice flour – ½ cup
  • Ginger – 1.5 teaspoon
  • Coriander leaves – ⅓ cup
  • Cumin Powder or multipurpose masala powder – 1.5 teaspoon
  • Asafoetida or hing – 1 pinch (optional)
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil, butter or ghee – 2 to 4 tablespoon
  1. Rinse moong beans and soak them overnight or hours. I soaked ¾ cup of moong beans and got a little more than a cup of soaked moong beans. Drain the excess water.
  2. For the batter : Grind the soaked mung with ginger, coriander leaves and approximately ½ cup of water.
  3. Transfer the mung paste to a bigger vessel and add in the cumin powder, rice flour, salt and hing. Add more water if required. We need to get the dosa batter consistency. Mix properly. The batter for green dosa is ready.
  4. Heat a non-stick or dosa pan with ghee or oil. Pour a pour spoonful of mixture into the pan and spread it in a circular motion so as to get a circular or oval shape.
  5. Thick dosas may take a little longer to cook than usual dosas so try to make thin moong dosas. You can also make thin crisp dosas out of this batter.
  6. Cook till one side is cooked. When it is slight golden brown, repeat on the other side. The heat should be on medium. Add oil as per your choice.
  7. To check if the one side is done it should turn over easily if it still sticks to the pan that means it is not cooked.
  8. Once both the sides are done, green moong dosa is ready to be served.
