A gluten free snack of dosas stuffed with protein and fibre rich sprouts together with antioxidant rich veggies like beetroot, carrots, cabbage and tomatoes. While the dosas make a great alternative to rotis for the gluten-intolerant, the nutritious stuffing is a healthy alternative to starchy potatoes! You need to plan a little ahead if you wish to make Stuffed Sprouts Dosas, because the batter needs to ferment.

For the dosa batter

  4. Add the mixed sprouts, beetroot, carrot, cabbage, tomatoes, coriander, turmeric powder, chilli powder and salt, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 2 minutes, while stirring occasionally.

  4. Place a portion of the stuffing in the centre of the dosa and fold over.

I really enjoyed the sprouts stuffing dosas. For all the health conscious, this stuffing is a good replacement to regular carbohydrate rich aloo stuffing.
