4 from 1 vote

South India is ever famous for its crispy dosas and spongy idlis . There are numerous variety of dosas . How about an instant dosa which requires no soaking , no fermenting . Time consuming and a life saver , specially when there are sudden guests and there is no dosa batter in stock . Interesting ? To make these instant dosas super healthy , I have incorporated foxtail millet along with some leftover cooked rice . A healthy breakfast / snack for kids . Millets carry Protein , fibre and all other essential minerals and vitamins .
