Dosa is a staple food in South India and you could find it as a breakfast serve in most of the houses. Dosas is also known as fermented pancake made from rice batter. As I always say, my goal is to get my kids have maximum intake of veggies, in the most creative way and in which they like, so they stay healthy and I am happy when they have it. This is one of the ways that I do to get them have a healthy breakfast with all nutrients in it. A perfect breakfast.

Rice – 3 cups
Urdu Dal – 1 cup

Grated carrot – 1/2 cup
Grated broccoli – 1/2 cup

. Soak the rice and dal for about 4-5 hours.
. Drain the water and grind the mixture to a smooth batter consistency. Not too thin and not too thick. Add salt.
. Allow the batter sit overnight . ( For best result grind the contents in the evening) . With this measurement you could make dosas or idlis for two days. For the dosa, just add a little water,if the batter is thick.
. In a bowl beat the eggs and add all the veggies, milk, sauce, coriander leaves, salt and pepper and give a good mix. Keep it aside.
. Place pan on flame and very hot, lower the flame and pour a big spoonful of batter on the pan and rotate till a thin base is formed.
. Sprinkle some oil or ghee and then pour about 2 tbsp of the egg mix on top of the base.
. Cover with the lid for a few minutes , so that the egg gets cooked well.
. Flip the dosa and let it cook for a few seconds on the other side.
. Serve hot. Either could serve with a chutney or without chutney. Both tastes good.
