RCI Karnataka - Udda Mooga Pole

You know how after three hours of misunderstanding the hero finally decides he can't let the heroine get away but, alas she is on the way to the airport? Will he make it? He rushes to the airport only to see the plane take off before his eyes. Dejected he turns to head back home and... you know the rest.

I kind of felt the same way with all the blog events of September. I had big plans for MBP and the Cookbook Challenge but I missed the bus (or plane). When I finally found some time to post a recipe I was pretty sure the most important one would have gone by too. I checked hostess Asha's blog and goodness, there it was - RCI Karnataka patiently waiting for me near the boarding gate!

So here I am with my entry - dosas made with urad and moong dals. Apparently I am not the only one who prefers hassle free, non fermentation recipes. With temperatures dropping everywhere, I received a few requests for more instant recipes. This is the third instalment after paan pole and sanna pole and there is one more coming up soon.


(makes 5)
1 cup split black gram dal (urad)
1 cup split green gram dal (moong)
1" piece of ginger, grated
2-3 green chillies, finely chopped
salt to taste
oil for frying

Soak dals separately in water overnight or for a minimum of 3 hours. Wash and grind to a smooth paste using a little water.

Add ginger and chillies. Season to taste. Heat a griddle on moderate heat. Drizzle a little oil and pour batter onto the centre of the pan. Spread into a slightly thick circle with the back of your ladle.

Cover and cook for a minute. Flip over and fry on the other side. Serve immediately.

Instant urad dal dosas...Konkani food differs so much from the rest of karnataka. I should start cooking some konkani food. Nice and authentic entry Ashwini.

Hi Ashwini, so nice to see you made it to the airport ;)

This no-ferment dosa (is that what 'pole' is, no-ferment?) is on the try-soon list! I had alot of fun reading Karnataka recipes, did not come across this one. I can see I'll have lots of cooking to do :)

Padma - thanks so much for your kind words

Madhu - I am sure a Kannada version exists... there are so many similarities between the two cuisines anyway.

Dee, Roopa - thanks

Suganya - phew...just made it ;-)

Tee - Yep... not that I have anything against the fermented types but I am into quick hassle free stuff right now

RC - you haven't heard of them? They taste great too

Linda - People have gone all out for RCI this time haven't they? Pole is Konkani for dosa or pancake. Polo is singular and pole is plural.

Jyothi, Roopa, TP (!), Pooja - thanks girls

Asha - good intentions are never enough!!! After troubling you so much via emails I didnt even post the recipe. My bad - soon I promise. Just so you can sleep easy at night ;-D

Sandeepa - I huffed and I puffed but I sent an entry...

Shankari - I thought you might need some intervention! There is mung dal chilla too for later

Nabby - hey good to see you here. Hasn't all that math driven you crazy yet? Thanks for your compliment and for dropping by

Quite a dosa fest here, Ashwini. Love the recipe! Looks really yummy, just waiting for me to grab them :). And i love that you don't need to ferment the batter!

Shilpa - I agree, the cuisine is just too varied with regional and then familial variations. The dosa on your blog is tempting too

Musical - thanks... I tend to overdo a theme when I find it :-)
