Broccoli Dosa

Dosa is the last thing that I can prepare at home. None of us like to eat Dosa at any time of the day unless Dosa looks different or somewhat special.

This week, the left out Vegetable in our fridge was Broccoli. I had prepared Broccoli rice bath, Broccoli Masala, Broccoli Paratha and Broccoli Palya/Poriyal. So, this time it had to be Broccoli Dosa. Needless to say, broccoli is one of the world's healthiest foods. It controls diabetes and reduces the risk of cancer. It protects our skin from Sun's UV rays and keep skin healthy. Broccoli also detoxifies our body keeping it healthy.

Broccoli Dosa is exceptionally easy and came out to be very tasty. I made cucumber Saagu to go with it and it was perfect for dinner. All the dishes I make are quite spicy and I tend to use Green chillies a lot. You can exclude it or decrease the quantity as per your taste.

[Makes 8-10 dosas]
Broccoli florets 2 cups
Ginger chopped 3 to 4 pieces
Cumin seeds 1 teaspoon
Green chillies 2 or 3
Wheat flour 2 cups
Semolina/Rava 1/2 cup
Salt 1 teaspoon
Water 2 to 3 cups

Wash Broccoli florets. In a mixer, grind Broccoli florets, ginger, Cumin seeds and Green chillies into a coarse paste.

In a bowl, Mix wheat flour, salt and semolina. Add the ground paste to the dry ingredients. Add water and mix it to make a Dosa batter.

Heat a frying pan and sprinkle few drops of oil. Pour a ladle full of batter on pan and spread it using the bottom of the ladle and give it a round shape. Keep it a little thick since it tastes better that way. Cook for 2 minutes and then flip it. Cook for another minute and remove it from the pan.

Serve hot with chutney.
