Urad Moong dosa/ Udid Mooga Polo

It is amazing to see the varieties of dosas we have and the little variations which all together gives a new dosa with amazing color, texture and taste. I have been looking for dosa without rice. When my mom made this last week I instantly decided to note down recipe and try it. It can be prepared during fasting days as well. Also it is a no fermentation dosa!


  1. Urad dal – 1/2 cup
  2. Green Moong – 1/2cup
  3. Water
  4. Salt
  5. Oil for frying

Method of preparation

  • First soak equal amount of urad dal and green moong over night or atleast 3-4hrs.
  • After that grind them to fine batter
  • Add required amount of water and salt to taste.
  • Fry on dosa tawa, on medium heat by applying oil
  • This takes time to cook and have to be very careful while frying. But dosa will be soft and fluffy, very tasty.

Taushe/Cucumber Muddo/Gatti/Dumplings

Taushe/ cucumber muddo

Started our deepavali celebration by having this healthy breakfast made by mom. She picked up huge cucumber and very aromatic turmeric leaves on her way back from Goa temple visit.

These steamed dumplings can be made in 2 ways. The base remains the same and in one version jaggery is added and in other ginger and green chilly is added. I like the mixture of a little bit of both.

The ingredients required are-

  1. Cucumber – about 1kg
  2. Coconut – half
  3. Jaggery – as per taste(about 50grms or more)
  4. Salt
  5. Rice powder(idli rava) – about 1.5 cup
  6. Turmeric leaves

Method of preparation –

  • First make tiny pieces of cucumber as we cut for salad.
  • Grate the Coconut and jaggery(this can be more if you like sweet) and mix with cucumber.
  • Add salt to taste and squeeze well
  • Next add rice powder and mix well
  • Keep it aside for sometime for rice flour to absorb water
  • Now take the turmeric leaves. If the leaves are big cut then in the middle.
  • Keep 2 pieces in the cross shape and place the mixture.
  • Fold from all the 4 sides
  • Keep in the steamer and steam for about 20min.

Note :

To prepare spicy version in place of jaggery finely chopped ginger pieces and green chilly has to be added.

Alternatively you can add ginger and green chilly to this mixture itself to make it sweet and spicy.
