Spinach Dosa | Palak Dosa ~ Step by Step Recipe | 101 Dosa Varieties

Spinach Dosa
Spinach Dosa or Palak Dosa is one of those instant doses you can make for a quick breakfast.

For the 6th day, it’s yet another instant dosa that I had in the file collection. This dosa calls for adding spinach leaves as such to the batter, however, I knew it wouldn’t blend well.  I had already made a Spinach dosa that was with masala added to the batter but with the spinach leaves added as such.

Since this batter uses besan and wheat flour, this hardly takes about 10 mins to get the batter done, a real time saver when you are in a hurry. I blanched the palak leaves in the microwave and pureed it to be added to the batter. I also had a curried chili paste that Athamma had prepared. I have planned another recipe with curried paste, so I will feature then.

  1. I knew this was coming from you when you announced the theme with this as an example. But the ingredients are mind blowing, you have made a dosa without the dosa batter…excellent and must try

  2. Very nice Valli. This is similar to the besan puda recipe that I saw in some other site minus the spinach. Spinach adds a super healthy boost to this nutritious dosa.

  3. Look at the green color it is looking just like the new fresh spring leaves. You can try adding carom seeds next time to this besan dosa. In Rajasthani cuisine in most of the recipes with besan we add carom seeds and hing.
