    Yes. I make these dosas, mixing different lentils. It's very good for diabetic patients, since it has no carbohydrates. Avoid wheat and refined flour and any lentil with urad dal, whole moong with urad dal dosa also tastes good. You can make crispy dosas too.

    Did anyone try this dosa?. There were no comments. Usually I check for rating first. Is this taste good like masala dosa in hotel they serve.
    Your answers are appreciated. I just want to know whether these dosa taste good and is it safe for diabetic patient too.
