Breakfast Recipes/ Dosa & Idli/ No Onion No Garlic


I know preparing healthy , filling and a different variety breakfast each day is a daunting task . So today i have ,one more breakfast option for you all … and this time its Raw Banana Dosa / Plantain Dosa or Balekai Dose as called in Kannada. These dosas are a nice variation to the regular dosas.

I have already posted quite a few variety in dosas using veggies like cabbage dosa,ridge gourd dosa,tomato dosa,cucumber dosa , corn dosa , ladys finger dosa etc and today its Raw Banana Dosa. The best part about these dosas are it needs no fermentation . Just soak rice , grind with few ingredients and our instant dosa batter is ready .Yes its that easy and quick… Do give a try.. i am sure you will like these crispy Instant Raw Banana Dosa…If you can omit coconut , jeera and green chilli and make plain dosa .

    Hey Smitha, I wanted to know if any fermentation time is required for this recipe? I have tried similar recipe, with chana dal, very little rice and banana. No fermentation is required for that. You can check
