There are so many different types of dosa recipes made with various ingredients. Traditional dosa is made with a fermented batter of rice and urad dal. But, if you want to include protein in your breakfast diet, try this Mixed Dal Dosa recipe made with five different dals or lentils.

Mixed Dal Dosa also called as Yadni in Karnataka and Adai dosa in Tamil Naadu and Aandra Pradesh is very easy and no ferment dosa recipe made with various lentils or dals. All we have to do is to soak the dals/lentils overnight or 7-8 hours to make a smooth batter.  This protein rich mix dal dosa make a super healthy breakfast when served with Coconut Chutney or Tomato Chutney or Special Coriander Seeds-Onion Chutney.

Coriander Seeds-Onion Chutney is a unique chutney made specially for Yadni or Mixed dal dosa. It enhances the taste of dosas. As these dosas are made with different dals they have a bit earthiness taste.   

This high-protein dal dosa is the perfect alternative for the regular dosa that we have grown up eating. Other than urad dal, green moong dal, Arhar dal or Toor dal, yellow moong dal, Masoor dal and chana dal are used to make dosa batter. Also, the batter doesn’t require fermentation, so you can instantly make these dosa right after grinding the ingredients in the morning after soaking them overnight.

Pro Tips:

You can add the dals or lentils you have handy and also change their proportions. 

You can skip rice if you don’t want to add.

You can increase the proportions of the ingredients for more servings.

You can make these dosa crisp or soft by adjusting the batter consistency. For thick and soft dosa spread the batter thick like we do in set dosas.

For a crisp dosa spread the batter thinly. 

If you are using a casted iron skillet, make sure it is properly seasoned. Otherwise, dosa will stick to the tawa.

If you prefer to use non-stick then no worry.

Dosa is a great source of healthy carbohydrates. Having one or two dosas will supply with the necessary energy that your body need to stay energetic throughout the day. If you are planning to loose some extra fats then this mix dal dosa is an ideal option.

Yes, this Mix dal dosa is a perfect cheat meal. Avoiding the deep-fried vadas steamed idli, dosa, vegetable uthappam or specially mixed dal dosa can be enjoyed with a big bowl of sambhar or chutney. Which makes you full for whole day and skip your meals. Thus, resulting in weight loss.
