Kala Chana Sprouts Dosa..

Inspired by the green gram Pesarattu (the Andhra Dosa delicacy), I thought why not with something else ??

I had sprouted black chickpeas ready, so thought that would be a good ingredient to try it with..

Must say they turned out very good, so was glad I made them..Do try it and you will not be disappointed.


Black Chickpeas sprouts - 3 cups
Rice flour - 2 tbsp
Onion - 1 small
Green chillies - 5 small
Ginger - 1 inch piece
Salt - to taste

You also need

Cilantro, chopped - a little
Onions, finely chopped - 1/4 cup ( optional)


- Grind the Sprouts with onions, green chillies, ginger using enough water.
- Take the mix in a bowl, add salt and rice flour and mix well to avoid any lumps.
- Now, add the cilantro and the finely chopped onions ( if using) and mix well.
- Heat a non-stick tawa, pour little batter on it, spread lightly in circular motion, drizzle oil on sides and on top and when done on one side, flip and cook on other side till done.
- Serve hot with a chutney or with chutney pudi.

Note :
1. You can do this without sprouting the chickpeas also. Just soak the chickpeas for about 8 hrs and then use.
2. The chopped onions mentioned in the second part is optional, you could do without adding them to the batter also.
3. Instead of rice flour, you could soak a tbsp of rice in water for a few hours, and then grind it with the chickpeas and other ingredients.
4. The batter should not be runny, so adjust the water accordingly.

Maya said...

Thanx Purnima. I used non-stick tava, so they came out pretty easy. However till the first side gets done, you have to wait, else they have a tendency to break.

Asha, Meera, Bhawana, Sangeeth, Jayashree, Divya, Mona, Thank you all girls..

Asha, So good to see you here. Am doing good..Hope your house renovation is going great and will see you blogging soon. Really miss you.

Divya, I dont think Channa will qualify for the event. But thanks so much for mentioning it dear.
