This is the favourite dish of my family for breakfast. Very easily prepared , and the ingredients are also almost all the time available at home. its a complete food with all the nutrients....protein( gram flour) and vitamins (vegetables).


Gram flour(besan) 250 gm.

1 carrot grated

1 radish grated

a bunch of spinach leaves chopped finely.

2 green chilli finely chopped.

salt to taste.

oil to saute or shallow fry

make a thick batter of gram flour adding water.

Add al the it must be of flowing consistency.

Now heat a tawa or pan.

Spread 1 tsp. oil

and spread 2 tbsp. batter at a time . shallow fry it just like Dosa, but both the sides.

Enjoy it with curd and chatney.

As a variation you may add any other vegetable also, like cabbage, onions.

For making it more nutritious for kids, you may mix the fortified flour..multi grain flour....make it 50-50
