Wheat Flour Veggie Dosa

Wheatflour dosas usually have a mix of one or two other kinds of flours which goes in to make the batter. Here is the recipe with a difference. This dosa is made with just plain wheat flour (atta) and some veggies thrown in here and there. I was a bit doubtful, whether the batter would be too thin and would get stuck to the tava/ dosa pan. It worked out just perfect. S and I loved the taste of it. One thing that has to be taken care while pouring the batter on to the tava is DO NOT Spread the batter like the regular dosas, instead pour it like u do the pan cake batter, and spread it just a little ..
Here’s the recipe for Wheat dosa.

Ingredients:

1 cup Whole Wheat flour
1 medium carrot, grated
2-3 tbsp spinach, finely chopped
1 medium tomato, deseeded, finely chopped
1 green chilli, minced
½” piece ginger, grated
2 tbsp coriander leaves, finely chopped
Salt to taste
pinch of sugar (optional)
Oil for frying
Method:
In a mixing bowl mix all the ingredients with just enough water to make the batter a little more liquidy (thinner) than the normal dosa batter.

Heat a tava/dosa pan preferably non-stick pan, using your finger tips sprinkle some water on it, once the water begins to evaporate pour a ladle of batter and slightly and lightly spread in circular motion in the centre of the poured batter.
Dot the dosa with oil around its rim close and cook it for a few minutes. Check for the doneness by lifting the dosa slightly with the spatula.

Once it is nicely browned, flip it over to the other side and cook it in the same manner.
Repeat the same method for the remaining batter.
Serve the wheat flour dosa with chutney,pickle or side dish of your choice. It tastes brilliant with plain curd too :)

Whole wheat dosai is something my grandmother used to make for us and we all used to enjoy it. The addition of veggies makes it a complete meal.
