Healthy dosa recipe!


This is not an original recipe but something a friend had suggested I try out. It is a healthy breakfast / snack option and all my boys (including the big boy) love it.

you need:

1 cup mixed daals – i use tur, masoor and moon
1 cup oats (quaker or any other instant breakfast oats)
ginger (as per your taste)
cumin powder
green chilly (if you like it spicy)
salt to taste
A little yoghurt / dahi ( a slightly tangy taste which we like)

Soak the daals in water for about an hour
Soak the oats in a little water for 15 minutes

Grind the daal mixture and then add the soaked oats and remaining ingredients and put it in the mixer to for a coarse paste. You can add water based on how thin you like the batter and how thin or thick you would like your dosas.

Heat some oil on a flat pan or non-stick tawa, put a dollop of batter on and spread it into a large circle. Cook it like you would a regular dosa.

You can eat it plain or with a chutney. For the kiddos I make a simple dip using dahi (yoghurt), salt, a bit of sugar, some red chilli powder and ground peanuts. It is easy to whip up and quite delicious. You can also make it minus the red chilly powder.

Mom - a word that defines me... I smell of oats, johnson's and home baked cookies I am pink, purple, green and orange and so is the floor my kids color on. Flour on my clothes and a brush in my pocket, my glasses bent out of shape and smudged with tiny fingerprints. I can't remember the date but i know almost 40 pictures books by heart. I wake up humming 'wheels on the bus'and i talk with my fingers and eyes and mouth. My bag carries band aids, napkins, wipes, crayons, papers, candy and sometimes my wallet. I know all the parks and very few of the restaurants in my neighborhood. Most of my shopping is diapers, books and paints My phd certificate lies in a roll, the frame now contains an abstract work of art by two year olds and i am prouder of that piece of paper. mom - a word that defines me!
