Mixed Lentil Dosa

Whole Green Mung Beans - 1 cup
Urad Dal / Split Black grams - 1/4 cup
Chana Dal / Split Bengal gram - 1/4 cup
Methi / Fenugreek Seeds - 1/2 tsp
Ginger - 1 inch grated
Green Chili - 3, chopped
Water - about 1/4 cup to aid in grinding

Soak mung beans, urad dal, chana dal, methi in plenty of water overnight.

Drain and wash in running water once. Add grated ginger and chopped green chili, a little water and grind in a grinder to make a smooth paste.

Add salt and mix the batter well with your hands.

Cover with a plastic cling loosely (or make a few holes on the cling) and place the batter inside the oven to ferment for 8 hours.

Heat an iron skillet. Brush with oil and pour a ladle full of the batter. Spread with the back of the ladle. Add a few drops of oil to the edges of the dosa.

Cook till the bottom browns. Flip and cook on the other side till brown and crisp. Serve with your favourite chutney.
