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

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.

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.
