Whole wheat dosas with a stuffing of green peas and paneer make an appetizing snack replete with beneficial nutrients like fibre and iron. Fibre binds glucose making it slowly available to the body and preventing a quick rise in blood glucose levels. For an authentic south indian experience serve with healthy coconut chutney.
