Ever since I started using avrekalu in my cooking, I have been hooked to it. I have at least 2 frozen packs of these all the time in my freezer. This is packed with nutrition due to so many vegetables in it. It does not require fermentation, so it is fast to make on weekends (may be a bit too much work on a weekday). It can be served with or without a side dish since this has green chilies, ginger in it. Make these thick/thin according to your taste.
1/2 cup avrekalu
1/4 cup grated carrot
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
3-4 green chilies
1/2 cup moong dal
1/2 cup urad dal
3/4 cup rice flour
1/2 tea spn finely chopped ginger
Soak moong dal and urad dal in water for around 2-3hrs. Grind along with green chilies and ginger to a smooth batter adding required amount of water.
Cook avrekayi till soft. Grind to a coarse paste, (there should be some small pieces after grinding) and add this to the batter. Add onion, carrot, salt and mix well.
Add rice flour to batter, mix well.
Make dosas of desired thickness.
