Udidu- Moogadali Polo ( Mixed Lentil Dosa)

Udidu- Moogadali Polo is a healthy dosa. In Konkani, Udidu means split black gram and moogadali means split green gram. This dosa is protein rich and doesn't require fermentation. The dosa has a mixed texture. It is not too crisp/ soft.

  • Urad dal/ Split Black gram- 1/2 cup
  • Moong dal/ Split Green gram- 1/2 cup
  • Ginger, chopped- 1 tsp
  • Green Chilli, chopped- 1 tsp
  • Salt- To taste
  • Oil- For frying


Wash and soak split black gram and split green gram in water, for 4-5 hours (I used the lentil without skin). Drain out excess water and then grind it to a smooth paste. Add water as required, while grinding. Then transfer it to a bowl. Add salt, chopped green chilli and ginger. Mix well. Adjust the consistency of the batter using water (It should be of dropping consistency but not watery). Batter is ready.

Now heat the tawa/ griddle and once hot, pour a ladel full of batter on it and start spreading it.

Sprinkle oil on the dosa and close it with a lid. After half a minute or so, the dosa starts to turn golden brown.

Now slowly flip the dosa to fry the other side, to get a slight brown color. 

Transfer it to a plate. Udidu- Moogadali Polo is ready!!

Serve it hot with any chutney or curry of your choice. I served it with Ridge gourd peel Chutney. Above measurement serves three people.
