Paasiparuppu Dosa/Yellow Moong Dhal Dosa

For the 5th day under instant dosa varieties in Cooking Carnival is a protein rich dosa with moong dhal.
This dosa can be called as vegetarian omlette as the taste resembles egg omlette.This dosa can be spread into a thin crepe or like uthappam/pancake.Either way it tastes good.
The dhal gets soaked in less than an hour,once the batter is ready the dosa can be made.Grated veggies or some greens can be added to make it more healthy.
Today I used,chopped onion and coriander leaves.Spicy tomato chutney or coriander chutney pairs very well with this dosa.Lets move on to the recipe............
