It couldn't be more easier to make my kids eat veggies in a simple way....all for their love of eating dosas and pancakes!!
It really makes me happy that they didn't find out there was veggies embedded into their pancakes that morning :)) so good for me right!!
Well I wanted to make instant dosas that weekend morning!...Found couple of zucchinis in the back of the refrigerator. Simple click in my head, grate them and add them to the batter, would that be so difficult, or would they find out!
Well only if I would make it, that I would know, what was in store for me -- fuss or complete peace!! :)
So it was the second one -- complete peace...they finished their breakfast in a jiffy. The older one ate it plain, so it was already savory enough for him. The younger one ate with allam pachadi as usual!
Expect for adding Zucchini and deleting sooji in the batter, the batter is almost same as my instant dosa mix.
Because of the zucchini I didn't spread it out as a dosa, but left it more like pancakes, that is on the thicker side.
They are soft, so fry them till they are little crispy.
I found out that keeping them batter for the next day, isn't that useful. Fresher the batter, the pancakes come out better.
2 cups grated zucchini (I had 1 green and 1 yellow, gave a wonderful color effect)
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tbsp lemon juice
3/4 cup yogurt
1 cup All purpose flour, Maida ( can use whole wheat flour instead)
1/2 cup besan
1/2 cup rice flour
salt to taste
1/2 tsp chilli powder
some chopped coriander leaves
Mix all ingredients together into a dosa like batter.
Pour onto heated tawa / tava.
Sprinkle few drops of oil.
Cover and cook for couple of minutes and then flip over. Let brown on both sides.
Serve hot with any chutney, pachadi or podi.
