Banana Whole Wheat Sweet Dosa

Banana whole wheat sweet dosaV1I’m a sought of banana addict, especially it’s subtle flavour. I don’t like eating them as such, but I love throwing them in everything from smoothies to cupcakes to breads. And pancakes are my favourite thing to add them to because it’s so easy (and, in my mind, I think it’s healthy;-). Making slight variation to the regular pancakes recipe, I’m here today to share with you Banana Whole Wheat Sweet Dosa recipe, a delicious sweet treat especially for children. You can also call them eggless banana whole-wheat pancakessmile.

The best part of this Banana Whole Wheat Sweet Dosa recipe is that it does not require any fermentation or grinding. It’s also a good way to use up extra ripe bananas. The browner the banana, the sweeter it is and the dosas tastes better. Usually this recipe uses all-purpose flour, but I have used whole-wheat flour on a healthier note. This dosa is an easy to make, nutrition packed snack. The same batter can also be used to make Sweet Paniyarams.

This recipe for Banana Whole Wheat Sweet Dosa being eggless version, I add a little more baking powder than usual, and let the batter sit for a few minutes before cooking up the dosas. Baking powder activates twice – first, when it gets wet, and second, when you apply heat. So take advantage of that first activation and let the batter get bigger  and bubbly…..It actually works!! The dosas/Pancakes are fluffy yet moist, thanks to the mashed banana mixed into the batter.

If you prefer, go ahead and substitute soy milk with regular milk and sugar with jaggery. You can also include cinnamon or cardamom powder for flavour. Feel free to use whatever suits your tastebuds.

I love how something magical happens when bananas are cooked or baked… the sugars caramelise, making the bananas taste even more intense. You will absolutely feel indulgent, but all you are eating is wholesome, good-for-you ingredients in dosa formadore.

So….with out any further delay…..Off to the recipe for Banana Whole Wheat Sweet Dosa!!

step6

Banana whole wheat sweet dosaV3After making 2 dosas, somehow did not like the way they looked for presenting. I tried to give it some touch with chocolate sauce, but was not happy with that too.

  • So finally decided to make them as small pancakes with the same batter. The taste would anyway remain the same. You can see this in the below picture.
  • You cannot store the batter for later, you will have to finish it off immediately.
  • Finish off the batter to make dosas/pancakes and turn off the heat.

step7

  • Serve these pancakes/dosas plain with sliced bananas on top, or with a drizzle of pure maple syrup, peanut butter, chocolate sauce, Nutella, jam or a drizzle of honey.

My Notes
The batter gets sticky and the batter gets cooked very fast. So always cook over medium - low flame. I have always noticed that as we cook on, the pan gets seasoned and you end up making good ones towards the end.
So a non stick pan is always best for this.
If the batter sits too long, you may not get good dosas. Do not store the batter for later, use it up immediately.
Make sure your griddle is hot before adding the batter! Preheat the griddle until drops of water evaporate immediately and dance when dropped onto it.
Spray your pan or griddle between each dosa/pancake or batch of pancakes. You could use butter, but I always use nonstick spray or very little oil when trying to keep breakfast on the healthier, lower-fat side.
