Varai Dosa , Healthy breakfast

Hello dear readers! Today I’m going to share a healthy breakfast recipe. I have been hunting for healthy recipe’s since few months and trying to eat healthy as much as possible. I don’t believe in starving but making some changes in life makes a lot of difference. I stumbled upon this recipe accidentally while browsing Shetty’s Kitchen facebook page. I tried it and it came out just the way we like. Even my kids gave the green signal since this is a crispy dosa and is a keeper in my house now. My daughter Sanjana  made the egg and cheese stuffing dosa . So we can also make masala dosa with this batter or any stuffing of your choice. Stay tuned for interesting recipes!!
