Dosa or Crepes is one dish that I will never get tired making or eating or even experimenting with! It’s a delicious South Indian snack that has been popular since centuries and also in our homes. My mom and MIL make great dosas which are very similar to the western crepes. I came across this recipe when I visited my hometown, Bombay this year. My MIL made this for breakfast and I was surprised to know that she had used green base as the base.
It’s a family recipe, she had learnt it from her aunt and has been making it ever since. I tried it for the first time and loved the taste of it. Jokingly, my FIL suggested that I must put this recipe up on my blog. He believed that my readers will enjoy such easy to make recipes and he was damn right! Over time, I have realized that crepes or dosa recipes do the best and gain popularity instantly. I think it’s mainly because, they are instant, filling and delicious. Green Peas Crepes is all that and more!
The recipe is easy. I would normally prefer using fresh peas for this recipe but frozen peas works fine as well. Soak moong dal for 2 hours minimum. Drain and grind to a smooth paste adding little water, salt, onions and green chillies. Add green peas to the blender and grind it to a smooth paste. Mix the lentils and green paste together. Add water to get the desired batter consistency. Now add salt and cilantro to the batter. Mix it well. The batter will be thicker compared to other dosa batter recipes. Heat a tawa, pour a spoonful of batter and spread it like a dosa. Drizzle oil around the sides and cook both sides evenly.
Make a required batch of Green Peas Crepes/Dosa and reserve the remaining batter for later use. Keep the batter refrigerated. Serve these crepes with chutney or mulagapudi and enjoy them for breakfast or as an evening snack. I would highly recommend to pack these in lunch boxes and relish it for lunch in school or at work. You can enjoy them guilt-free as its very healthy and rich in protein.
