Whole Green Moong Dal/Green Gram: 2 Cups.

Curry Leaves: 8 nos.
Ginger:1/2" Piece.

How to put it together:

Soak the Green Gram in water for about 30 mins, i normally prefer to soak it overnight (about 6-8 hours also gives you a good crepe),
Coarse grind the Green chillies, curry leaves,ginger,Jeera,dry red chilly together and set aside.
Now drain the soaked Dal and grind with enough water to come to a Dosa batter pouring consistency,make a smooth paste.(when you add water to the batter after grinding, dosa's / crepe won't turn out crispy).
Add the pre-ground masala, which we made earlier into this batter, chop one onion finely add to batter, next add salt and, mix thoroughly.
Now on a pre heated Tawa/Girdle, rub little oil and wipe with a tissue, spread the batter in a spiral movement forming a round shape,spray a little oil, allow to cook, when you notice one side done, turn over and allow the other side to cook and make hot dosa's, and relish with the chutney of your choice.

Oates Dosa

There's nothing more inviting than hot South Indian breakfast: strong filter coffee, piping hot drumstick sambher with little bits of coconut, tasty coconut chutney gunpowder and golden-crisp Dosa!

 Jaggery Coated roasted chickpeas 



Turnips are called Shalgam in Punjabi/Hindi, Gonglu in Punjabi and Gogji in Kashmiri. They are mild in taste and absorb spices well. We love it in various forms. Shalgam is a winter vegetable and is a popular recipe from Punjabi cuisine. Shalgam (Turnip) belongs to the radish family. Shalgam ki sabzi is very good for health as it is very low in calories and fat, and a good source of fiber and several vitamins like Vitamin C, Vitamin B, VitaminB3, Vitamin B6. Gur is Hindi/Punjabi for jaggery.  This creamy version from Punjab is one of our favourites.
