Sprouted Moongdal & Barley Masala Dosa

After trying out barley in Paruppu adai, i really wanted to try them with some other legumes, my next choice went to green whole moong dal which i sprouted at home and combined those sprouted moongdal and barley to prepare this delicious dosa and i stuffed with simple potato & peas masala...Why as masala dosa, whenever i try to make out new dishes i usually try to turn them as my family's favourite, for example here in this recipe i completely changed the dosa as masala dosa by stuffing with potato masala coz my little family just love anything with potatoes so that they can enjoy easily..Coming to this green dosa,i was surprised to see my new combination of dosa turned out really amazing and the dosa was really crispy and delicious,really filling, nutritious and a prefect complete dinner or breakfast when served with spicy coconut chutney..Apart from soaking and sprouting, this dosa is really very quick to prepare and no fermentation needed also i skipped completely the addition of rice in this dosa..


2cups Sprouted whole moongdal
1cup Barley
2nos Green chillies (chopped)
1inch Ginger (chopped)
2tbsp Coriander leaves
Salt

For Masala:
2nos Potatoes (cooked&cubed)
1/4cup Green peas
1no Onion (chopped)
2nos Green chillies (chopped)
1/4tsp Turmeric powder
1/4tsp Cumin seeds+mustard seeds
1tbsp Coriander leaves (chopped)
Salt
Oil

Soak the barley for atleast 4hours separately with enough water...meanwhile prepare the masala, heat enough oil and let splutters the mustard seeds and cumin seeds, add immediately the chopped onions and chopped green chillies, stir until the onions turns transculent..add the green peas to the onions and saute everything with turmeric powder and salt in simmer until the peas get half cooked, add immediately the cooked and cubed potatoes and cook everything in simmer until the masala gets well cooked, add finally the chopped coriander leaves and put off the stove..

Now coming to the dosa batter, grind the sprouted moongdal and soaked barley together with salt, green chillies, chopped ginger and coriander leaves as bit coarse batter..Heat a nonstick pan...pour a ladle of this sprouted moongdal & barley batter, drizzle the oil and cook on both sides until the dosa get well cooked..place the potato and peas masala inside the cooked dosa as much as u desire and roll them..

Serve immediately with coconut chutney..

WOW!! Looks so good. Barley sounds good, I added Quinoa once. They all make great looking dosas and healthy too, but always add with some other grains too. Good post Priya, I think I have Barley somewhere in my pantry, got to find it! :)
