Healthy wheat flour jaggery dosa or vella dosai which taste so delicious and is easy to make. Perfect for snacks or quick breakfast.
When we were little kids. We always used to annoy amma asking her to make something for evening snacks..But amma was so consicious about our health, so she never deep fries anything. Instead she make this sweet pancakes for us. She used to make this with pure homemade ghee which amma makes at home. Sometimes she throws some cashews or any nuts in that to make it more healthy and flavourful..As a kid we loved it a lot.Even now my sister ask my mom to make it often. Thinking about this reminds me about my childhood days.
Health Benefits of Jaggery
Jaggery is a non-centrifugal cane sugar that is traditionally consumed in the Indian Subcontinent, Southeast Asia, and Africa. It is a concentrated product made from cane juice and often date or palm sap, with no separation of molasses and crystals, and its colour ranges from golden brown to dark brown.
When I was thinking about what dosa to make for today. I thought why not I make this dosa which I grew up with…And I tried it yesterday for dinner, actually I made this for my mother and she totally enjoyed it..The combination of wheat flour and jaggery is perfect in this dosa..I added some rice flour to make the dosa little crispier..You could do this without adding any rice flour too..I hope you will love it for sure ...
