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 be fermented.

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