Toddlers are very particular about eating. We have to do so many tricks to feed them healthy food. I always try to mix and match alot of healthy ingredients to prepare a recipe to give my children.
This five flour dosa is very common recipe, but I am giving this to both my kids from the age of nine months. And they both eat without any problem and its the quickest and healthiest recipe to make as per me. I am giving qty in TBSP measurement, as I make only for them.
Here is the recipe:
Wheat flour - 5 tbsp
Soya flour - 3 tbsp
Maida(All purpose flour) - 2 tbsp
Rice Flour - 3 tbsp
Gram flour - 2 tbsp
Curds - 2tbsp
Salt as per taste
Jeera - 1 tsp
Hing - 1tsp
Onion - 1 small chopped(1 tbsp for each dosa)
Cucumber - 1 small grated(1 tbsp for each dosa)Carrot - 1 small grated(1 tbsp for each dosa)
Fresh coconut - 1 tbsp for each dosa
Fresh coriander to garnish
It looks like so many ingredients, but all are easily avialable at home.
Mix all the flours with curds,salt,jeera powder and hing. Bring it to dosa atta consistancy. Keep it for five minutes aside.
Heat tawa, spread a small puri size portion of atta on tawa. First spread coconut,then onion,cucumber,carrot and coriander.THIS SHOULD BE VERY FAST. Leave oil on the sides, afte a minute turn it and cook other side also.
Serve hot with ghee.
If you have a big kid, you can spread large size atta on tawa and spread all the grated vegetables and prepare large dosa.
My younger daughter gets attracted to small dosas as it looks colourful and she tries to eat herself.
