Breakfast has always been a very important meal in India. We take our breakfast very seriously. Many of our non-indian friends find it hard to believe that we are ready to have a full meal first thing in the morning.
Through out my childhood, I remember waking up in the morning and asking her “What’s for breakfast?” every single day. Unlike what it’s made to look like these days, there was no ‘chasing children’ to force feed breakfast! My brother and I would happily eat our breakfast before heading to school.
Today, though I am not a big breakfast eater, I cook hot breakfast everyday just like my mom. I can never have a cold breakfast! Cereals and porridges just don’t cut it as well. To me a breakfast will always be a savory South Indian snack or ‘Tiffin’ as we call it. Steaming hot freshly made breakfast every morning is the only reason for me to eat in the morning. One of the most common breakfast while growing up was Dosa.
Today I am sharing the recipe of one of my all time favorite Dosas! It’s a ‘Baalekai Dose’ or Green Banana Dosa. This Dosa is very easy to make and the recipe is very simple. It has just 2 ingredients, just green bananas and raw rice! Yes… it’s that simple. What’s better? It doesn’t even need to be fermented! They are gluten free, vegan and very healthy.
These dosas are made thin and crisp and are served most of the time with coconut chutney. So there are recipes for 2 coconut chutneys too along with it.
I am sharing these recipes at Vijitha’s beautiful blog ‘Spices and Aromas’ today. Vijitha’s blogs mainly traditional South Indian recipes, which as you all know is the cuisine closest to my heart. I think my Dosa recipe will fit in perfectly well in her blog!
Head over to her space for more information on Dosas, why they are popular, other kinds of Dosas from my region, lots of photos and of course the recipes!
