Paruppu Dosai (Adai)

What do you do if you have different kinds of dals but not quiet enough to make a dish out of those, make Paruppu dosai ofcourse. No need to ferment the dough, blend the dals should be a slighty coarse texture and can be used immediately. You could add grated veggies, greens anything, can be as creative as you want. Last time I made this daughter complained about gas. I added ginger and also washed the soaked dals a couple of times before blending.

Combine all the ingredients and grind to a coarse dough. The batter should not be too watery. Add grated veggies or cut greens and mix in the batter. I did not have any veggies or greens handy so did not add any.
