4 Fun Dosa Recipes

Idly and Dosa are two favorites in my household. Nine out of ten times you will find idly and dosa batter stored in my refrigerator. Its easy to whip up a healthy and filling meal, or snack, if you have the batter handy. Also makes for a good lunchbox food and the kids love it too, which is a great plus!

Paratha is another one! But as much as we can’t get enough of these, you tend to get bored of the same ways. Specially the kids. They want variety, they value the looks of it and several other criteria, like the hand shouldn’t get dirty, shouldn’t be too spicy and should be easy to hold and walk around when eating lunch and playing with legos go hand in hand! So I started experimenting with our good old dosa batter and came up with a few recipes which are approved my the kids and “kids at heart” alike. Sharing four of our family favorites today.

All these recipes are pretty simple and intuitive from the video itself. No exact measurements necessary. Feel free to play around. Although all of them have one thing in common, the dosa batter. I have a detailed post on how I make my dosa batter. I make my batter once a week. Ferment it and then store it in an air tight container in the refrigerator. Use it as and when required. Its good for a week.
