Spinach Dosa | Palak Dosa ~ Step by Step Recipe | 101 Dosa Varieties

>>  Wednesday, March 21, 2012

For the 6th day I decided to make another instant dosas that I had in file. The dosa calls for adding spinach leaves as such to the batter, however I knew it wouldn't really be a blend to the batter. I had already made a Spinach dosa that was with masala added to the batter but with the spinach leaves added as such.

Since this batter uses besan and wheat flour, this hardly takes about 10 mins to get the batter done, a real time saver when you are in a hurry. I blanched the palak leaves in microwave and pureed it to be added to the batter. I also had a curried chilli paste that Athamma had prepared. I have planned another recipe with curried paste, so I will feature then.

Step by Step Picture Recipe

Spinach Dosa

Ingredients Needed:

Besan / Gram Flour - 1 cup
Wheat flour - 1 cup
Spinach. puree - 1/2 cup
Curried Green chillies - 3/4 tsp
Salt to taste
Oil for cooking

How to make the dosa

Wash and drain the spinach leaves. 

Blanch the spinach leaves for 4 mins in microwave. Once cooled, puree the spinach leaves to a smooth paste. 

In a bowl, sieve the flours together, add the salt, curried green chilli paste and the spinach puree. Mix well to get a lump less batter. Slowly add enough water to get a thin batter. 

Heat the tawa and grease with oil. Reduce to medium, pour a ladleful of batter and spread as regular dosa. Sprinkle oil on top and cook on medium heat.

Serve hot.

Serve this dosa with butter, idli podi / Pearl Onion chutney

I knew this was coming from you when you announced the theme with this as an example. But the ingredients are mind blowing, you have made a dosa without the dosa batter...excellent and must try

Very nice Valli. This is similar to the besan puda recipe that I saw in some other site minus the spinach. Spinach adds a super healthy boost to this nutritious dosa.

Look at the green color it is looking just like the new fresh spring leaves. You can try adding carom seeds next time to this besan dosa. In Rajasthani cuisine in most of the recipes with besan we add carom seeds and hing.
