Green moong or sabut moong uttapam or dosa. A nutritious breakfast made of only two ingredients and with cilantro or coriander leaves, salt and spices. Protein packed and low carb green moong made this uttapam or dosa tasty and healthy. Its completely gluten free, vegan and no onion garlic recipe. And you don’t need to ferment the batter.
I have used rice flour with green gram but you can use semolina, oatmeal or any other flour of your choice. Handful chopped cilantro or coriander leaves, chaat masala, green chilli and ginger will make your uttapam absolutely delicious. And rice flour will make it crisp. Its a no onion garlic recipe but you can use finely chopped onion on topping and garlic cloves can be used to grind with green gram or sabut moong.
