  1. Never tried Green moong dal.......I wonder how it taste.

    1. Hi Elena!
      The batter tastes a little different from the normal dosa batter but adding ginger and green chilli to the moong dal batter definitely makes it taste good.
      Do give it a try and let me know how it turned out.
      Thanks for stopping by!
