Breakfast Challenge Day 06, Multigrain Dosa


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 05, Quinoa Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Today was pancakes day and a chocolate chips one at that!

I decided to ditch the refined pancake flour and use Quinoa flour instead. The kids loved it however, I found it a little dry but nothing softens up pancakes like honey or condensed milk. A nice generous drizzle and I was set for breakfast.

For the kids, I dusted the top with some unsweetened cocoa powder and the kids were good to go!



  • Quinoa flour
  • Chocolate chips (chunks in this case)
  • 1 Egg
  • Milk
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Cinnamon powder
  • Jaggery powder (to taste)
  • Pinch of salt
  • Butter or Ghee for the skillet
  • Un sweetened Cocoa powder



  • Mix everything in to a smooth batter and make pancakes as you would with butter or ghee.
  • Dust cocoa powder or drizzle honey, maple syrup or condensed milk on top.
  • Serve warm.

Up next tomorrow, Dosa (yaaay!)
