                                                           MAASH KI ROOTI

Lentils, a small but nutritionally mighty member of the legume family, are a very good source of cholesterol-lowering fiber. Not only do lentils help lower cholesterol, they are of special benefit in managing blood-sugar disorders since their high fiber content prevents blood sugar levels from rising rapidly after a meal. But this is far from all lentils have to offer. Lentils also provide good to excellent amounts of six important minerals, two B-vitamins, and protein—all with virtually no fat. The calorie cost of all this nutrition? Just 230 calories for a whole cup of cooked lentils.

 Maash ki rooti or rice lentil pancakes is a very simple and easy breakfast recipe. Though it looks a lot like dosa, it is not. For the former we have rice, lentil ratio in 3:1 here we take the same quantity. Also in place of rice flour we use rice semolina. We can make fresh rice semolina at home – just grind rice in an electric mixer for 5 sec. Neither it should be finely powdered nor grains should be seen. Because of its high lentil content its high in protein. In some parts of south India ,this breakfast along with mutton or chicken khurma or curry is served especially when a son-in-law visits his in-laws first time after marriage.  Coming back to the………….. recipe.

serves:2                            cooking time :10 minutes


  •      1 cup- rice semolina
  •      1 cup- urad dal (soaked at least 3 hrs)
  •      2 cups – water
  •      1 tsp ghee for each roti


Grind urad dal along with 1 glass or 2 cups of water, into a smooth batter. Pour it in a mixing bowl and add in rice semolina, salt and mix. The batter consistency should be semi thick. Heat a dosa griddle and sprinkle few drops of oil and rub it all over the pan, with the help of a half cut onion. (this is to prevent sticking). Using a ladle pour in 2 spoonful of batter and spread a little. Pour ghee all around the corners.

 Don’t close it and cook, it will become soft like an aapam. It should be cooked uncovered on low fire for at least 3 or 4 minutes, till you have a soft golden crust. Flip it over and cook on the other side. Serve hot along with raw tomato chutney or any non-veg side dish.

Raw tomato chutney:

Take 1 small tomato , 1small onion , 2 garlic cloves , 2 red or green chilies, pinch of salt and ¼ cup water in a mixer. Grind for 2 sec and temper with mustard seeds and curry leaves.

    I’m impressed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s both equally educative
    and engaging, and let me tell you, you have hit the
    nail on the head. The problem is something that not enough folks are speaking intelligently about.
    Now i’m very happy I came across this during my hunt for something concerning this.
