This recipe does not use any rice, and is perfect for those looking to consume a protein-rich diet. Dosas traditionally contain fermented rice, but this recipe is a gluten-free version. In fact, any combination of dals can be used for this recipe, such as toor, channa, or even urad dal, along with green moong. The best part of this recipe is that you can meal-prep in advance and refrigerate and store the batter for upto 2 to 3 days.
