image_pdfimage_print


               Dosa is a fermented pancake from rice and dal. It is a indigenous food to southern part of India. But now it is getting popular around the world. This is a slight variation of regular dosa, in which I added some vegetables to make dosa even more healthier and colorful.  This dosa is very easy to make and a very filling meal for breakfast or dinner and your kids will love this.

   Ingredients

       2 Cups of Dosa Batter
 
   To Make Masala

       2 Medium Size Carrots, Finely Chopped
       1/2 Cup of Beans, Finely Chopped
       1/2 Cup of  Peas (Frozen)
       5-7 White Mushrooms, Finely Chopped
       1/2 Cup of Red Onion, Finely Chopped
       1 and 1/2 Tsp of Coriander Powder
       1 Tsp of Red Chilly Powder
       1/4 Tsp of Turmeric Powder
       1/4 Tsp of Garam Masala
       1 Tsp of Ginger Garlic Paste
       1 Tsp of Mustard
       1/2 Tsp of Cumin
       3 Tsp of Oil

   Method

  • Heat oil in a pan, add mustard and cumin, after they splutter, add chopped onion and ginger and garlic paste, saute this for 1-2 mins until raw smell vanishes.
  • Add all the veggie’s (carrots, beans, peas and mushroom ) Turmeric powder, red chilly powder, coriander powder, garam masala and salt. Saute this for a min. Sprinkle some water and cover pan with a lid and cook it for 3-5 mins until all the vegetables turns soft. Once done, turn off the stove
  • Add water if batter is too thick. Heat a dosa pan or tawa, take a laddle full of batter, spread it like thin dosa. Drizzle some oil over the dosa or in sides. Cook both sides until it turns crisp.
  • Place enough vegetable masala in the centre of the dosa and then fold it.
  • Serve hot with Green chutney or peanut chutney or tomato chutney

 

    Tips

  • Finely chop the vegetable for this dosa.
  • You can add chopped green chillies instead of red chilly powder.
  • You can grate the vegetables for stuffing instead of adding chopped vegetables or you can also add vegetable puree to the batter and make a colorful dosa.
  • You can add chopped nuts of your choice.

   Health Benefits of Vegetables

  •  Vegetables are home for antioxidants.
  •  Vegetables are packed with soluble and insoluble fibers.
  •  They are rich in vitamins and minerals.
