Ade Dose


 

Ade dose is a healthy, protein rich, low GI, power packed savoury crepes that is absolutely delicious. These vegan, gluten free crepes are made mainly with lentils which are power house of nutrition. Ade dose is rich in vitamins, minerals, dietary fiber, and is a great non-meat source of protein.

To make ade dose, I soak 4 types of lentils with some rice overnight. I then grind it into a batter, add onions, coriander leaves and make dosas or crepes with it. It doesn’t need fermentation unlike the regular dosa.

This popular Karnataka breakfast is a great way to include plant-based protein in your diet. This wholesome dish is a perfect meal when served with coconut chutney and they are also perfect for lunch boxes. Try this healthy, nutritious dish and let me know how you like it.

 

 

Ingredients:

Pigeon pea lentil (toor dal) – ½ cup
Split Bengal gram (chana dal – ½ cup
Split black gram (urad dal) – ½ cup
Split green gram (moong dal) – ½ cup
Rice – ½ cup
Coconut – ½ cup, grated
Ginger – 1 inch piece, grated
Green chilli – 3-4 or as per taste
Cumin seeds – 1 tbsp
Asafoetida or hing – a generous pinch
Onion – 1 large, finely chopped
Coriander leaves – a handful, chopped
Salt to taste

Method:

  1. Soak toor dal, chana dal, urad dal, moong dal and rice in sufficient water overnight
  2. Next morning, rinse the soaked dal-rice mixture thoroughly using running water
  3. Add coconut, ginger, green chilli, hing, and cumin seeds. Grind into a slightly coarse batter using some water
  4. Transfer the water into a large bowl and add chopped onion, coriander leaves and salt. Mix well
  5. Add water to adjust the consistency of batter if needed. The ade batter is sightly more thin and runny when compared to regular dosa batter
  6. Heat a tawa/griddle until it is hot. Turn the flame to medium. Lightly grease the tawa and wipe off excess oil using a kitchen towel. Sprinkle few drops of water on to the tawa and let it evaporate
  7. Take a ladle full of batter and pour it in the centre of the tawa. Using the ladle or a small bowl gently spread the batter in circular motion
  8. Pour a tsp of oil or ghee onto the ade. You may skip the oil if you are using a non-stick tawa
  9. Cover and cook on medium flame until brown
  10. Flip the ade and cook on both the sides
  11. Serve hot with coconut chutney
