Whole Wheat Dalia Dosa

Whole Wheat Dalia Dosa - Plattershare - Recipes, food stories and food lovers
Do you want to make dosas even more healthier? Dosa is one of the main breakfast options in a South Indian family. I prefer to make dosa as healthy as possible. I make these dosas at least twice a week apart from brown rice dosa and dal dosa. Whole wheat dalia dosa as the name suggests, is made using whole wheat dalia, urad dal and little rice. Hence it is a good alternative for people on diet as well as for people with a history of diabetics.
