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

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.
