Colorful Mini Dosas

Mini dosas are my favourite dish right from my childhood. I still remember, as kids how much my sister and I loved this. Mom used to make this spongy mini dosas during dinner only. That is because she could do it leisurely. Most of the times, we used to have our dinner in the open space in front of the house under moon light. I always loved to have them with sugar & ghee. We enjoyed listening to our grandma's stories while relishing these dosas. We had even named it as "Ambuli dosai". In tamil, Ambuli means "Moon". I'm not sure, why we called it so!! ( May be for the shape or we ate them under moon light) The colorful mini dosa is healthy too as I'v utilized the natural colors of vegetables.




Ingredients :

1. Dosa Batter
2. Coriander
3. Carrot
4. Tomato
5. Oil

Procedure :

1. For green color, take small quantity of batter and grind it with coriander.

2. For orange color, take small quantity of batter and grind it with tomato.

3. For light yellow/sandal color, cook carrot and then grind with batter.

4. When ready, make small spongy dosas.

5. Serve hot.

Note: If you want, you can add coriander chutney, tomato chutney, carrot chutney etc..Those additions will make your dosa taste too good :-)
