Mixed Sprouts Dosa Using Idli Dosa Batter

Mixed Sprouts Dosa Using Idly Dosa BatterV1hi I’m back again. Had to make a sudden personal trip to India. Sorry to keep you guys wait. Today I’m going to share my first recipe for the blog hop event “Dosa Special”- Mixed Sprouts Dosa Using Idli Dosa Batter.

Dosas are an integral part of South Indian cuisine. There are myriad varieties of dosas. Have you checked out my recipe for the basic plain dosa? I keep experimenting different versions of dosas. Among the many variations, this Mixed Sprouts Dosa is the latest favourite at home especially the twist with coriander is the highlight for me. Those who know me will understand how crazy I’m about corianderadore.

As it is well known that sprouts are super foods and a power house for nutrition. Sprouting process will increase proteins, vitamins, essential fatty acids in beans and nuts. Eating raw sprouts is good to completely benefit out of it, but not everybody likes to eat them raw, especially kids and some grown ups like me notsure. So, when you grind sprouts along with batter and make dosa, they will not even realise they are consuming sprouts and will love the taste.

Once I discovered the world of sprouts, I try to include them in regular cooking to make it healthy at least to an extent. Though still not a fan of sprouts in salads, I like to sauté them lightly, sprinkle some salt and pepper and munch on them. Sometimes I also include onions, green chillies and grated coconut. With this recipe, I found another great way to consume sprouts. My husband loves to have sprouts for breakfast. I do try hard to consume them raw since they carry more nutrition punch but its not something I look forward to.

There are different ways to prepare this recipe… Mixed Sprouts Dosa Using Idli Dosa Batter. Today I’m going to share with you, the recipe using fermented idli dosa batter readily available in my fridge.  In case you would like to prepare the batter from the scratch, refer to the recipe for idli dosa batter. Once you have the batter and sprouts ready, you can make this super nutritious breakfast in no time.

Todays recipe for Mixed Sprouts Dosa Using Idli Dosa Batter uses sprouted green gram whole (Moong dal), black gram whole (Urad dal) and white chick peas (Kabuli channa). It will take at least two days to get 1 inch sprouts. It is better to have them after they get 1 inch sprouts. Check my post on how to make sprouts at home !!……

My Notes
It will take at least two days to get 1inch sprouts. It is better to have them after they get 1inch sprouts.
The prep time is given assuming that you have sprouts and idli dosa batter ready.
Avoid green chillies when preparing for kids.
You can prepare dosa with just the sprouts and spices or sprouts, black gram, rice and spices and so on. You can use raw rice or boiled rice or combination oft he two. Adding little bit of rice makes the batter easy to spread on the pan and also little crunchier.
You can also make it as an instant dosa using just rice flour, but you will miss out the sour flavour which you get by fermenting the batter.
Ginger and cumin seeds aids in easy digestion of the dosa.
