Butterbean Soy Dosa

A healthy protein rich dosa is very good choice for kids and those people who are on protein rich diet. This dosa contains butter beans and soya beans, both are rich in protein and other vitamins which are essential in our daily diet. I would love venturing something new all times. It is nourishing and tasty. It helps in gaining weight. It improves the strength.  I chose this protein rich Butterbean Soy Dosa for breakfast today.   I like incorporating healthy things into our everyday cooking without sacrificing taste and flavor. You can serve the soya bean dosas with coconut chutney, sambar or even the dry podis. This goes well with a simple red chilly chutney.

Add idly batter if you like.butter2 3. Add water to adjust the consistency of the batter (it should be thick, yet pouring consistency).To this batter add salt. butter34, On a hot tawa or griddle, pour a ladle full of batter.
