So us who eat dosas very frequently multiple choices and healthier options are much needed. Adding flavours and curries to dosa batter will bring multiple choices but if we want to go for healthier options then we have to try other grains as well.

  • On each plate, get the chat ready by following the below process:
  • Break the fritters into pieces and place them on the plate (1 to 2 leaves per plate)
  • Pour curd on top of each of the pieces with a spoon gently
  • Now put few spoons of green chutney and sweet chutney as per taste on the pieces
