Green gram dosas stuffed with a potato and capsicum filling. I discovered these dosas are so easy to make, as the batter does not require any fermentation. If you are not the one who can make dosas, just drop spoonfuls of the batter on a non-stick pan and make great pancakes! a high protein and carbohydrate packed snack. These dosas are a good beginning to a meal or those in between times!

Love dosas and cut the chilli in this recipe. Play around with the stuffing and throw in any veggies you like.

Try this: Make tiny tiny dosas using one teaspoon batter on a tava. You can make 15 doas at a time on the tava, using spoon and spreading it lightly with the teaspoon. Or, make moong pakodis with the same batter and fry crisp. Par boil some chana sprouts or moong sprouts, say 1/2 cup. Prepare the filling s discussed in the recipe, add the sprouts. Add the chilla-s or the pakodis as the case be, toss them together. Add a splash of tamarind chutney or green mint chutney, garnish with sev. Eat immediately :) Big chunks of pineapple and moong pakodis with crunchy sprouts make good music.
