Breakfast is the most important meal and i never skip it . Preparing healthy, filling and a different variety breakfast each day is a daunting task . So i am always in the look out of some new variety which can entry into my breakfast variety . They not only have to be tasty but also healthy .. and if its too .. wow !! what more can i ask .

This soya bean dosa is one such recipe which cleared all those categories . I saw it in one cookery show .. but it was an instant version .. no fermentation method . Somehow .. i didn’t like the taste of when i followed that method . Later I  tried fermenting and made dosas again with the left over batter . Bingo .. they were thin ,  crispy .. and just like regular dosa.. no raw or strong flavor of soya . Whole family loved it .

Few points to note while making Soya Dosa : 

  • You can make these dosa thick or thin .
  • Instead of soya bean .. you can add soya flour too . After grinding the batter .. mix soya flour and allow to ferment . Add little less than 3/4 cup
