Palak dosa

This dosa can be prepared with any ‘Masala Dosa’ batter. This is in popular demand at our place especially the daughter likes it very much. She tasted it at ‘Sai Sadan’ prepared by her mayi Santoshi Nayak. And I was left with no choice but borrow the recipe. I make it either plain , with cheese or with cheese schezwan or Chinese . You may prepare as you like. I was a bit hesitant  to share this recipe  as it is a simple one. But then I thought of sharing it finally.
