Ungerminated and germinated green gram (Phaseolus aureus) were analyzed for chemical composition and functional properties. Four dosai mixes were prepared. The composition of the mix was a cereal, rice flour or wheat semolina 50%, germinated green gram flour 46%, salt 3.5% and sodium bicarbonate 0.5%. Dosai mix samples were evaluated for moisture sorption at different relative humidity (RH) and sensory attributes. Consumer response for the mix was also obtained by distributing the mix to 50 housewives. Protein, fat, total ash and fiber contents of green gram were 23.6, 1.4, 3.4 and 6.14 g% on dry weight basis, respectively. Germination lowered the mineral content of green gram. Fat absorption, water absorption and emulsification increased on germination. Moisture uptake was low in green gram + rice flour blends (7%) and high in green gram + wheat semolina (33-36%) blends at the end of 5 days of storage at highest RH of 93%. All the formulated dosai mixes had excellent sensory quality and there was no difference between blends made with germinated or ungerminated green gram. The consumer perception done through Hedonic scaling showed that most respondents liked the green gram + rice flour based instant dosai mix.
