Palak Chilla / Palak Dosa

The instant yummy Spinach dose for breakfast.

Whenever someone says Spinach, the cartoon Popeye comes up in my mind. You remember the cartoon? I should accept Popeye had amazing influence as a child. The amazing power he got eating Spinach easily created a great influence in my kiddo mind. And thus made me devour anything made with Spinach as the ingredient. And obviously my taste buds fell in love with the taste as well. I use Spinach in my regular diet in a number of ways. Today let’s boost our breakfast with some Palak Power with these instant and yummy Palak Chilla or dosa.

INGREDIENTS

  • Palak – Handful leaves
  • Rava / Sooji – Half bowl
  • Besan – 3 tablespoon
  • Dahi – 2 tablespoon (forgot to click with other ingredients)
  • Salt – to taste
  • Garlic – 4 cloves
  • Green Chillies – 2
  • Oil

Grind the palak leaves, garlic and green chillies in a mixer with little water to a paste. To this paste add the sooji, besan, curd and salt. Mix well and add water to create a pouring consistency. Keep aside for 10 to 15 minutes. Curd helps in making the dosa with nice soft and perfect. Some like to use baking soda also but I prefer to keep it out. And frankly the end result without it is also amazing.

After 15 minutes, once again check the consistency. As sooji has a tendency to soak the water. Make it pouring consistency just like a normal dosa batter. Grease a heated dosa tawa with oil, and pour a spoonful of batter. Spread to a medium size. It depends on your choice how big you want the dosa to be. Let it cook nicely.

Flip once when it browns on one side. Press with your spoon and cook on the other side as well. Serve hot with chutney, dahi, tomato ketchup or just like that. As the batter has curd, the dosa stays soft for longer time and can be packed in tiffins as well.

Believe me it turned out so yummy, that my little girl, after eating two dosas already couldn’t stop when I tried to photograph some for the blog. A perfectly healthy, filling and yummy breakfast option. And you don’t need to soak, grind, ferment an so on which is almost a 24 hour process. Instant still healthy and of course yummy. ‘Yumminess Everyday‘.

BE YUMMY. BE HEALTHY.
