Carrot And Pesarapappu Dosa- Carror And Moong Dal Dosa

Carrot and Pesara pappu dosa, this is not Andra pesrttu. This dosas are made with split moong dal (pesarapappu). No need of fermentation because we are mixing this dal batter with already fermented dosa batter. Just soak dal for 2 hours grind and mix with dosa batter this process will take only two and half hours time. If you dont have dosa batter then mix 1/4 cup rice flour to dal batter and add 1/2 tea sp of cooking soda or 1 tea sp or 1 small pack of eno mix to combine every thing (don't over mix after you add eno)  you carrot and moong dal dosa batter is ready. Even you don't have any of this ingredients grind dal with carrot by adding thin lightly sour butter milk then add 1/4 cup of pan cake mix and mix well and this variation also makes a soft delicious carrot and moong dal dosas. Hope you all like this recipe.
pesara dosa INGREDIENTS:---
Moong dal -- 1 cup soaked in water for 2 hours
Dosa batter  ---- 1/2 cup
Carrot  ---- 1 big chopped
Green chillies --- 2 chopped
Ginger  --- 1/2 in ch piece pealed and chopped
Salt to taste
Oil for frying dosa s
Grated carrot  --- 1/4 cup optional for topping ( you can top this dosas with chopped onion and chopped palak, methi leaves or any other vegetable. but adding other vegetables give a different flavor, they dominates carrot flavor so adding other vegetables is totally your choice.).
Photobucket METHOD:---
1. Drain water in to other bowl from moong dal ( so that we can use the same water for grinding the dal. So before you soak dal wash the dal well for 2 times and soak it in the fresh water.) and grind dal with ginger, green chilli, carrot, salt in to a fine paste.
2. Take the ground dal in to a mixing bowl and add dosa batter mix well to combine every thing.
3. Heat a skillet or a dosa pan in a medium heat and pour 1 ladle batter on hot pan, spread it in to a circle drizzle a little oil along with edges, sprinkle some grated carrot on top and let it cook for 1 minute.
4. Then flip the dosa other side, cook for one more second.
5. Serve hot with coriander chutney or onion chutney (spicy chutney s will be the best choice for this dosas.).
