Dosa is a fermented pancake from rice and dal. It is a indigenous food to southern part of India. But now it is getting popular around the world. This is a slight variation of regular dosa, in which I added some vegetables to make dosa even more healthier and colorful. This dosa is very easy to make and a very filling meal for breakfast or dinner and your kids will love this.
