Nice healthy dosa, Satya!
Don't you need to add rice? Only moong dal is sufficient?

We call this angle loofah gourd over here. My Indian neighbour use the peel to make sambar. I have not tried this in a dosa (is it same as thosai?). Looks very healthy and good. Must be delicious eaten with the coconut chutney!
