Healthy Veggie Dosa

How nice it feels to give a twist to our regular every day dishes :-) This one is very easy to put together and you can season it to suite your taste buds :D

* Vegetables (as per your choice). I chose - Onions, Carrots, tri-color peppers
* Cumin seeds (optional)
* Dosa batter

* Chop the vegetables very very fine. I don't have a photo of the chopped vegetables, but below you can see pictures of the Dosa batter and how I make this Dosa. The vegetables are chopped very tiny.
* Add proportionate amount of veggies to the dosa batter. Depends on how you like your dosa.
*if you want to make really thin dosa, the veggies should be lesser in your batter.
* But if you do not mind thick dosa, you can go ahead and fill your batter with veggies.
* Add a spoon or 2 of cumin seeds as per your taste. I love cumin seeds so I added a bit more.
* Mix the batter well, and add a little bit of water (if needed) to adjust the consistency.
* It should not be too thick or too runny.
*Tip* - if the batter becomes too runny, just add a spoon or 2 of Oats Powder (recipe here) to thicken it ;-) 
* At this point, you may check the batter to adjust salt as per your taste. I normally cook with less salt, so i do not add any extra salt to the batter.
* Place a dosa tawa on the stove in medium heat. Check that it has heated sufficiently and pour a ladle full of dosa batter on the tawa and spread it evenly.
* Add a few drops of oil around the edges of the dosa and cook on meduim flame.
* A couple of minutes later, flip over the other side and cook for few minutes.
* Your super healthy and tasty vegetable dosa is now ready to be served :-)

The batter is ready. Mixed well with vegetables and cumin seeds.

 The dosa batter is spread well on a hot tawa. Add few drops of oil around the edges and cook on medium flame.
