      Hi Sheetal.
      Thanks for visiting my blog and I am glad you liked this recipe. Quinoa is kind of seeds which is very healthy. If you are in India you can find it online on Amazon or in any big super market. If you are in US, It is easily available in any grocery store. 🙂
      Yes you may replace the masoor dal with any other dal. Increase 1/2 cup quantity of urad dal, chana dal or moong dal.

    Thank you very much for this recipe. Made it over the weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it including e family.. Just that I used only urad dal as my son has allergy for other dals. Am sure adding those would have enhanced the taste. The pictures that I posted in my fitness group made people drool… Lovely dosa, tks

      Hi Anu!!
      You can rest this batter overnight or 6 to 8 hours. After that, keep it in refrigerator.

      Yes you can use green moong. You dont need to soak it overnight. Soak it with all the ingredients(lentils) for at least 4 hours.

    Could millet be substituted for Quinoa?
    I’d rather buy & eat local produce.

      Hi Alpa,
      Glad you like this dosa. 🙂 May be your batter is too thick. Add little bit more water and spread fast, thin and evenly. Hope this helps. Let me know it any queries.
      Thanks for stopping by.
