Breakfast Challenge Day 06, Multigrain Dosa

IMG_8556

Dosa is a staple at our house. The fridge is always stocked with Idli/Dosa batter and it’s just so convenient to whip up idlis, dosas, uttapams and appams and what not!

Dosa is a savory Indian pancake roasted on a pan to a crisp if that’s how you like it. A crisp ghee roast is our all time favorite.

So traditionally, dosa batter is made at home with (uncooked) boiled rice and urad daal soaked overnight and then ground to a fine batter allowing it time to ferment and rise. However, I believe it does require a lot of practice to get it absolutely right which is why I prefer just buying it off the stores and then I’ll add raagi (finger millet) flour or assured flours to it to increase its nutritional value. For this I did the same.

  • On a hot pan, spread the batter with the help of a deep scooped ladle.
  • Sprinkle chopped spring onions and veggies of your choice
  • Dust the top with some chaat masala (optional)
  • Cook on a slow flame until golden brown and crisp

Serve warm with molaga podi (chutney powder that’s douce in sesame oil), coconut chutney or even a yoghurt dip tastes delicious.

Breakfast Challenge Day – 02, Banana & Raisins Wholewheat Waffles

Perhaps it’s too soon to be counting my chicken but the kids were SO peaceful this morning.

My son actually requested to be woken up by 6:15 am so that he could lend a helping hand in making the waffles! The little one too joined in and although in my mind I was in a mad rush to wrap up this DIY breakfast, I kept my cool and got them to stir and mix and rush off for their baths! Phew!

As expected breakfast was a breeze with “thank you mamma” and “I love this mamma” and “I will eat my fruit before I eat this breakfast”, where in God’s name did that come from?!?!?!?! Wherever it came from I was happy to oblige.

So, day 02 was a success and Day 03 promises to be easier because its just cereal. Yay!
