Wheat - Spinach Dosa

Wheat - Spinach Dosa

I used four fantastic ingredients for the balanced breakfast like whole-wheat flour, spinach, carrots and non-fat yogurt, which are very good in nutritional values. And for the sidekick, I used the mango juice again very rich in vitamins. Now, don’t you agree that this is a balanced breakfast? Let me jot down a little about the nutritional values of my ingredients.

  • Whole Wheat Flour: Wheat on the whole is a great host of so many nutrients. It is a very good source of dietary fiber, manganese and magnesium. Moreover, it helps in maintaining a healthy body weight.
  • Spinach: This is rich in Vitamins C and A and provides twice as much fiber as other greens. Spinach also helps in fighting heart disease and cancer.
  • Carrots: Carrots are an excellent source of Vitamin A. They are also rich in antioxidant compounds that help in protecting against cardiovascular disease and cancer and also promote good vision, especially night vision.
  • Yogurt: Yogurt is very rich in protein, calcium, riboflavin and Vitamin B12 and Iodine.
  • Mango Juice: We all know that Mango is really a comfort food. They are not only delicious, but also rich in vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants. Moreover, mangoes contain an enzyme that helps in good digestion. They are full of fiber. To say, mango is 'the king of fruit'.
O.K., O.K., enough with the health benefits! Let’s see the recipe.


Ingredients:
  • 2 cups Whole Wheat Flour
  • 2 cups Spinach
  • Wheat - Spinach Dosa
    ½ cup Carrot, cut into tiny pieces
  • Non-fat Yogurt (sour), beaten lightly
  • 1 tsp red Chili Powder
  • Salt as required
  1. Preparation: In a bowl mix all the above ingredients with enough yogurt or buttermilk into a batter. 
  2. The consistency of the batter should be neither too thick nor too thin, but medium.
  3. Heat a non-stick pan and drop a ladleful of the batter. Then spread it into a round shape and pour very little oil around it. Cover and leave it for some time.
  4. Then remove the lid and flip over the crepe so that the other side also will cook well. 
  5. Cover it again and leave it for some time more on a medium flame.
  6. When the pancake appears cooked, remove it from the pan and transfer into a serving plate. Repeat the same process with rest of the batter.
  7. Serve hot with any chutney (peanut chutney or ginger chutney) you may like along with the king I mean Mango Juice (or any juice you like).

Loved the name! Fantastic Four indeed! The dosa (ok, that sounds WRONG after the nice name you gave it!) looks delish and easy to make too. I think it'd be a good entry for Sri's Dosa Mela too!
