Updated: Jun 24
' Nature teaches us simplicity and contentment because in it's presence we realize we need very little to be happy '- Mark Coleman
Dosa's or south Indian savoury pancakes can be eaten at any time of the day. Typically a breakfast dish , these can be savoured for lunch or dinner too. Since the 12th Century , Dosa's have been prepared in South India. Now it has spread world over .Neer Dosa , which means Water Dosa , is usually made of rice batter , a delicacy of Mangalorean Cuisine.
Aswini's initiative to spread wonderful, simple and healthy recipes are the need of the hour now.
Today I prepared a very light dosa with millets , similar to the Neer Dosa , but packed with nutrition. You may serve it with Sambhar , a spiced Toor Daal(pigeon pea) mixed with vegetables delight and some Coconut Chutney .
When activity is not as much as it used to be , try making healthy choices most of the time. We have a good opportunity to teach our little ones that healthy can be delicious too. Today's Breakfast was very easy to prepare , light but delicious thanks to Rootz Organics for making wholesome grains available to us .
