Moong Sanna Polo is usually served as an accompaniment to Dal and Rice. Since Dal is never made spicy, the accompaniment is usually on the spicier side. You can adjust the spice level according to preference.
- 100 gms Moong/Green gram
- 50 gms rice
- 1/2 small coconut grated
- 10 dry red chillies roasted in a little oil
- Chickpea size of Hing/asafoetida
- 1 level tsp Tamarind paste
- 1 large onion
Wash and soak the Moong and Rice for eight hours. Grind the coconut, roasted red chillies, tamarind, Hing and salt to a smooth paste. Add the soaked Moong and rice and grind it to a Semolina like consistency. Pour into a bowl. The batter should be of pouring consistency. Add finely chopped onion. Mix well. Heat a tava/Skillet. Pour a ladleful of batter and spread it into a six inch diameter round circle. Drizzle a tsp of oil on it. Roast till the underside of the Sanna polo /pancake turns a nice golden brown. Flip. Drizzle oil again. Roast well. Serve hot.
