  • 2 cups green moong dal soaked in water for 4-5 hrs
  • 1 inch ginger chopped
  • 2-3 Thai green chillies / serrano chopped
  • 1 cup cilantro loosely packed
  • 2 cups baby spinach loosely packed
  • salt to taste


  • Soak the moong dal for 4-5 hrs with enough water to keep it immersed. Rinse and drain.
  • Add this to a blender jar. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend to a smooth batter. Add maybe ¼ -½ cup of water, little by little as needed, while grinding.
  • Rest the batter for 10-15 mins or so
  • Heat a skillet. Take about ½ cup of the batter and spread it out on to the skillet like a crepe. Drizzle a little oil, if needed. Wait for it to cook - you will see it change color a little, maybe even crisp up a little and will look cooked through on top.
  • Using a wide spatula, flip this over to cook the other side too. It should all take about 3-4 mins over medium heat.
