BM #96 Week 3 Day 3 - 

Here is a no nonsense lunch box idea. I prefer to make these mini dosas so the kids can eat at school with a fork and reduce the mess. In fact these mini dosas make for a perfect breakfast, after school snack and sometimes dinner. So I would say it is an 'anytime food'.

I end up making these mini dosas with the Idli batter as that is the most popular one at home. My little one used to like it with plain yogurt a few years ago but now she wants it be sprinkled with some peanut powder.

I use an electric griddle which is about 1.5 feet X 1 ft and so the entire batch is done in less than 7 minutes. I let them cool so they become crunchy and then pack in the lunch box. 

Ingredients - 

Idli/Dosa batter as needed
Oil for cooking as needed

Method Of Preparation -

In a heated and greased griddle, dop small spoonfuls of batter all over the griddle.

Let the undersides cook before flipping them so they get cooked on the other side as well.

Remove and continue with the batter as needed.

  7. I used to make this often when the kids were much younger. Guess with years on, they tend to get different food fancies and this is no longer in the list. Your plate looks so good that I can have it right now!
