Carrot Dosa

Carrot Dosa made with carrots and rice is highly nutritious and tasty. Little bit of pre work needed here is that you have to soak rice for at least a couple of hrs. before preparing the batter. Take about 2 cups of regular rice. Soak in hot water for 4 hrs. This is the most easy and tasty breakfast which I can think of while I don’t have any batter ready at home for idlis or dosas. Another easy method for working women and bachelors as well who usually are rushing to office in the morning or reaching home really late and looking for what to eat for dinner.IMG_20140313_140159-001Prep time:15 mins |Cook time:20 mins |Serves:4 persons
